David Raymond, Homeless Trust Director, Retires (Updated and Corrected)
The longtime executive director of the Miami-Dade Homeless Trust is retiring after a decade of overseeing local services for the county's destitute. During his tenure, David Raymond has spearheaded the development of dozens of shelters with over 7,000 beds throughout the county, leading to a sharp decrease in the number of people without a place to live.
An earlier version of this post erroneously reported that Raymond's retirement was connected to a lawsuit alleging he'd helped a construction company rig a bid to win a contract to build 145 units of permanent housing near Homestead.
"Raymond's integrity is unquestioned," says Book, who in his day job is Dade County's most prominent lobbyist. "He is tireless in his work and guides our day-to-day operation with a level of commitment unknown in governmental circles."
