Miami-Dade Sees Failure in Company It Favored. (The New York Times, 2/26/2013)
This Enterprise Florida misstep won't surprise Wisconsinites in the least
Banah International Group, a sugar company, received $430,000 in state and county tax breaks last year.
There was so much happy happy joy joy that the Miami-Dade County mayor renamed a street Banah Sweet Way.
Banah filed for bankruptcy on Friday, February 22, 2013.
What was missed, or overlooked, in Enterprise Florida's vetting process is the fact that Banah's chairman Alexander Perez is a convicted cocaine trafficker and spent time in federal prison.
