The Story Of Irving Moskowitz
and Hawaiian Gardens


Casino Contracts Compared – DDA: Redevelopment Contract


Coalition Refutes Moskowitz Booklet
praising Moskowitz gambling operation
in ten-part graphic series

How Moskowitz seized political control of Hawaiian Gardens and got the casino deal he wanted by secretly switching contracts.

The documents and reports in this section show how Moskowitz got and used control of the city and its resources.

 

Read a 1999 report on Irving Moskowitz and Hawaiian Gardens by Coalition coordinator Jane Hunter.

Document substitution gives Moskowitz an opportunity
to stop paying casino revenue taxes to Hawaiian Gardens.
The Coalition for Justice in Hawaiian Gardens and Jerusalem has obtained the original version of the redevelopment agreement, called a DDA, that governs Irving Moskowitz' Hawaiian Gardens casino. As you can read in The Story of Moskowitz & Hawaiian Gardens (directly above), a substitute, Moskowitz-friendly, DDA was substituted for the original in the moments before it was adopted. Click here to see how they're different, and how they favor Moskowitz – especially when it comes to the "stealth" language that will let Moskowitz stop paying casino revenue taxes. [see DDA: Redevelopment Agreement]

You judge:
In 2001 the Coalition obtained a copy of a booklet issued by the Moskowitz law firm, Selvin Weiner and Weinberger, attempting to deflect our charges about Moskowitz's gambling operations' abuse of Hawaiian Gardens. Click here to see how we set the record straight "in graphic form."
