Norman Braman: Recall is on against Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez

Billionaire businessman Norman Braman announced Monday he is launching a petition drive to recall Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez.

He said, however, he will not seek the recall of sitting county commissioners -- at least not yet.

The move comes after the mayor and eight county commissioners approved a property tax rate increase to plug a budget hole for the coming fiscal year.

Braman promised last week he would seek the recall of any politician who approved the rate hike. Read the developing story by The Herald's Matthew Haggman and Martha Brannigan here.
