Commissioner Jose "Pepe" Diaz continues the "14 Days of Neighborly Love" by joining MDX to provide free SunPass Mini Transponders on Feb. 27th


(Miami-Dade County, FL) -- 

Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz will join Miami-Dade Expressway Authority (MDX) to continue his “14 Days of Neighborly Love – Inspiring Random Acts of Kindness” by providing SunPass Mini Transponders to the first 1,000 motorists who pass through 97th Avenue toll plaza on the Florida Turnpike on Wednesday, February 27, 2013, starting at 6:30 a.m.  Out of the 1000 free transponders, 500 will include a voucher for $10 worth of credits on a first come, first serve basis. Commissioner Diaz will join MDX Executive Director Javier Rodriguez in handing out the transponders.

The “14 Days of Neighborly Love” initiative, inspired in part by Valentine’s Day, involves businesses and organizations donating their time and services from February 14 to February 27 to residents as a way of showing love for their neighbors and community. Until February 27, residents can take advantage of several services and goods offered at a discount or for free, such as tax preparation, marriage counseling, car washes, and more. MDX is one of the many organizations that have reached out to Commissioner Diaz to take part in this initiative and spread some joy to Miami-Dade residents.
