Opinion

Vouching for vouchers?

I’ll admit it. During my time in the Florida Legislature I was generally supportive of school vouchers. I bought into the argument that vouchers were similar in effect to the GI bill and the Florida Resident Access Grants, better known as FRAG.

I’ve seen this scenario many times. A venue opens up and a couple of tenants are highly successful, bringing in patrons. Then the landlord jacks up the rent until the formerly prosperous businesses go broke or decide they’re just churning money and not keeping any.
After the entire place, Hyde Park Village, Ybor, Channelside, etc. have lost their anchors (and their appeal) demographics, the economy, the government, yadda yadda, are the supposed culprits - never greedy landlords.
