Miguel Diaz de la Portilla's Path to the Dark Side Complete
|Sith Lords always come in pairs: Alex Penelas (left) and Miguel Diaz de la Portilla|
Miami-Dade's online lobbyist registration database shows Diaz de la Portilla -- who is running for state senate -- and Penelas have teamed up to represent ADA Engineering Inc., a company that came in second place for a drainage project at Miami International Airport. According to a memo to county commissioners from County Manager George Burgess, the aviation department is going to rebid portions of the contract after failing to agree to terms with the winning bidder. That means ADA gets a second bite at the apple. That means Diaz de la Portilla and Penelas get to make money together.
