Monestime rescinds vote for Jose Milton Ave. following discrimination charges

Miami Commission Chair Jean Monestime

Miami Commission Chair Jean Monestime says he will have to withdraw his recent vote to rename a Miami intersection in honor of famed Cuban-American real estate developer Jose Milton, following racial discrimination charges against Milton’s company.

The new allegations are from 2014 and 2015, after Cuban-American Jose Milton had died and his sons had taken over the family business and center around the Aventura Harbor Apartments, previously operated under the name Beverly Hills Club Apartments.

Monestime, who is Haitian-American and the only black commissioner to vote to rename the street,  says he will ask the board to reconsider their vote approving the renaming.
