Davie Hires Lobbyists To Snare Hard Rock Casino Money

Davie wants casino money
Ron Greenstein, a former House member who is now a lobbyist

The Town of Davie has placed a six-figure bet on two veteran lobbyists to preserve its share of Seminole gaming money.

At stake is a whole lot of slot machine quarters — $229,582.28 annually.

That’s what the town received last year from  the local government-sharing portion of the agreement negotiated with the Seminoles in 2009.  The money is for the impact of the Hard Rock Casino on Davie.

The money is at risk during the current session of the Legislature.  The 2009 deal has expired and lawmakers are due to discuss a new Seminole agreement negotiated by Gov. Rick Scott.

But for some reason town lobbyist Dave Ericks, a long-time lobbyist in the state Capital from Broward, doesn’t want to deal with the new Seminole agreement

So up popped Ron Book and Ron Greenstein.
