County Commissioner Lynda Bell in a Dispute

The ACLU has asked the City of Homestead to investigate charges that County Commissioner Lynda Bell stopped the Fuego Cuban Music Festival that was to be held at the racetrack. She said she did not stop the concert but the Miami Herald reported that:

Before the concert in Homestead could take place, Bell told Miami’s Radio Caracol (1260 AM) on Feb. 7 that she would do “everything within my power to stop that,” suggesting the event would be controversial among Cuban exiles.

“We understand free speech and will defend free speech, but not when public facilities and public funds are being utilized,” she said.
