Miami-Dade lobbying to be determined

Miami Today reports that Miami-Dade County will decide who to hire as lobbyists soon.

On June 10 the commission’s Health, Public Safety & Intergovernmental Committee asked that the firms ranked fourth (Akerman, Senterfitt & Eidson P.A., based in Orlando) and fifth (Cardenas Partners LLC, based in Tallahassee) be included, said Victoria Mallette, county communications director.

The committee requested additional funding to contract with these two firms at the same rate as the three others — Alcalde & Fay, based in Arlington, VA; Patton Boggs LLP, based in Washington; and Greenberg Traurig P.A., based in Miami — but said if added resources couldn’t be found, the contract should be renegotiated to distribute available funds equally among the five firms.
