Carlisle CEO defers meeting with Miami Workers Center leaders

Matt Greer, CEO of Carlisle Development Company, has deferred the invitation to meet with the leaders of Miami Workers Center and discuss how the community can harvest benefits from the many publicly funded projects he has in our communities. This Thanksgiving, the Miami Workers Center and its allies from the Community Wealth Coalition are asking Mr. Greer to come to the table and share his bounty with local community workers, small businesses, and residents.

Over the course of the past decade, Carlisle has enjoyed a strong relationship with state and local government that has yielded more than $1 billion of taxpayer money to help finance over a dozen projects throughout Miami-Dade. The Community Wealth Coalition is asking to meet directly with Mr. Greer to begin outlining concrete commitments Carlisle can make to ensure that its projects deliver maximum community benefit.

In a letter dated September 20, Mr. Greer affirmed his company’s commitment to holistic development and initially agreed to meet with the Miami Workers Center: “We always welcome the opportunity to continue to learn about the needs of the communities in which we work…We look forward to meeting with your group in order to gain a better understanding of your goals.” Now, Mr. Greer is asking that all discussions happen through the offices of County Commissioners. The leaders of the Miami Workers Center are asking Mr. Greer to honor his original commitment and meet directly with the Coalition to begin discussing community building solutions. Stay tuned for updates.
