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.

Although furious at Mayor Alverez's failed leadership and horrible decision making I do not believe in recalling an elected official. We, Miami-Dade voters, voted Mr. Alvarez into office and clearly he will not be re-elected and I believe that wanting a "do over" because we do not believe in his leadership is undemocratic.
Furthermore a new election once the recall moves forward will cost Miami-Dade County a few million more dollars that it does not have adding to the immense black hole like deficit.
Mayor Alavrez, as well as Commissioners, is the perfect example of why it up to us the voters to remain informed, involved and vigilant in monitoring the decisions our elected officials make in their attempts to represent us.
