[ARCHIVED] City of Homestead Centennial Recognized by State Senators and State Representatives

Mayor Steven C. Bateman and the City of Homestead Council were presented with four proclamations recognizing the city’s historic Centennial year. The proclamations were from Florida Senator Dwight M. Bullard, Florida Senator Gwen Margolis, Florida State Representative Kionne McGhee, and Florida State Representative Holly Raschein and were presented at the June 19 Homestead City Council meeting.

“The celebration of 100 years of any city is significant, and as representatives we thought it our duty to recognize this important moment in Homestead’s history,” said Senator Bullard during the special presentation. “Miami-Dade County has 35 different municipalities and it is a great achievement for Homestead to be the second oldest of all of them. We are honored to be part of this historic moment.”

The four proclamations were framed together and brought from Tallahassee for the historic presentation at the Council meeting. Florida State Representative McGhee presented the proclamations along with Senator Bullard, Erin Muir, aid to State Representative Raschein, and Jean Carlo Canabal representing Senator Margolis.

“On behalf of my family and the district I represent, which includes Homestead, I would like to say that for one hundred years Homestead has been pursuing what Thomas Jefferson called the pursuit of happiness,” said Florida State Representative McGhee during the June Council meeting. “For one hundred years Homestead has stayed on that course continuing to work hard and so this community can have one hundred more amazing years.”
