“Judy has always been a tremendous help and inspiration for us,” said Main Street Executive Director Yvonne Knowles. “She believed in us since the beginning and we wanted to recognize her for that.”
Councilwoman Waldman served as the Council Liaison of Main Street for ___ years and was instrumental in the growth of Main Street as an institution as well as acquiring the funding that prompted that growth. She helped increase awareness in the community about Main Street’s mission to revitalize Downtown Homestead and improve the quality of life of our citizens. Among the various events which she helped organized through Main Street are Wings over Homestead and the Biscayne/Everglades Greenway Bike Festival, which attracts hundreds of cyclists every year to ride through the greenway that connects the Everglades and Biscayne Bay National Park.
