Orlando Lamas today announced he has stockpiled over $100,000 since filing for office in May. Lamas raised over $16,000 in June putting his total war chest at over $100,000 over a year away from the election. Lamas is a candidate for Florida House District 111, which encompasses portions of Hialeah, Miami Springs, and Virginia Gardens. The district also contains Miami International Airport.
“I am truly honored to have received this much early financial support from my friends and family,” said Lamas. “I want to represent the community where I have lived for over two decades. I will continue to work hard and to earn the support of my community.”
Lamas, born and raised in Hialeah, is a licensed architect and a certified general contractor. In addition to leading his own architectural firm, he also is the principal of a full-service construction firm and has worked on many projects throughout Miami-Dade County, including Dolphin Mall and Bayside Marketplace and is co-owner of multiple hospitality venues in Miami-Dade County.
The district is currently represented by Bryan Avila, who is not running for re-election due to term limits.
