Miami-Dade County Mayor Recalled by Wide Margin

March 15, 2011

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Alvarez was booted from office on Tuesday night, with an overwhelming 88 percent of voters choosing in favor of recalling the once-popular incumbent. 

The Miami Herald called the race with more than 85 percent of precincts reporting. Voters also removed County Commissioner Natacha Seijas from office. Both Republicans will have to vacate their offices on Friday. 

The recall effort, however, was spearheaded by GOP businessman Norman Braman, who spent $1 million of his own money in expelling other Republicans from office. Braman and voters were upset by property tax increases, pay raises for public employees, and using public funds for a new Major Leage Baseball stadium.

 

Alvarez was first elected in 2004 and easily won a second term in 2008.
