South Florida Winners and Losers of the Week

by carlislewillard

Winner: The Everglades. The federal government is sending $1.1 billion to Florida to fund Everglades restoration. The money comes from the $1 trillion infrastructure bill pushed by President Joe Biden. The package falls short of the delegation’s $1.5 billion request, and some want funding for additional projects. But the influx is welcome.

Loser: Mark Rosenberg. The Florida International University president resigned abruptly Friday, citing his wife’s failing health. Days later, Rosenberg confirmed FIU officials were investigating a harassment complaint against him, which prompted his resignation. The complaint alleges Rosenberg made repeated unwanted romantic overtures toward a female colleague.
