Rubin and other town leaders, often dressed in Western attire to dramatize the rural character of Southwest Ranches, have made periodic pilgrimages to County Commission meetings to lobby for grant money. During one such gathering last June 22, Wasserman-Rubin asked then-Mayor Ilene Lieberman: “Can I just recognize the members of the town that are here?”
“You may certainly do so,” Lieberman answered.
“…We’ve got Mr. John Canada, town administrator, and we have town grants writer Richard Rubin,” Wasserman-Rubin said.
What was amazing about the exchange was that she didn’t even note that Rubin was her husband, though county staff and her fellow commissioners were surely well aware of that fact. Shortly after her introductions, the commission voted unanimously to give the town more than $1.1 million.
