When I ran for the County Commission in 2010, I had a plan, and that was the 4/4/4 Plan. It included four strategic issues to assist in rebuilding our local economy. One of those issues was to work to bring a Convention Center Hotel to Broward County. I went on to point out the obvious to those of us who live here in South Florida: We live in a perfect area for business conferences, annual meetings, and international expositions. Projects like a convention center hotel are needed to bring jobs to the area as well as market Broward County effectively.
