2. Alvarez, Seijas trounced in Miami-Dade recall election
<snip>

"With more than half of precincts reporting results, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez and Commissioner Natacha Seijas have been ousted from office.

Results from the controversial recall election, including absentee and early votes, show a vast majority of voters, around 88 percent, want to kick the politicians out of office.

Results will be certified Friday, when Alvarez and Seijas must vacate their offices."

<snip>

"Alvarez and Seijas were subjects of a recall vote after petition efforts championed by billionaire auto magnate Norman Braman and political action committee Miami Voice. The two drives began after Alvarez pushed through a budget that hiked the countys tax rate and gave raises to county employees. Seijas voted for the budget.

Both Alvarez and Seijas tried to kill the recall vote in court."

Natacha Seijas was the commissioner from my district and I'm jubilant that her corrupt #$% is finally gone.

:party:

Good stuff here about Natacha:
