Luther Campbell Appointed To Miami Sports & Exhibition Authority
Former county mayoral candidate and current Miami New Times columnist Luther Campbell has a new gig. Miami City Commissioner Michelle Spence-Jones has appointed the former 2 Live Crew frontman to serve on the board of the Miami Sports & Exhibition Authority, which was recently given oversight of the Miami Marine Stadium. Although Spence-Jones says Campbell's appointment is unrelated to the city's waterfront property on Virgina Key.
Earlier this month, a divided Miami commission voted 3-2 to approve a three party agreement between the authority, the city and Friends of Miami Marine Stadium. The deal will allow the recently established nonprofit preservation group to develop a plan to renovate the dilapidated stadium and raise the $30 million needed to save the facility.
