WOW, and I thought the left was seeing a resurgence based on their pompous pronouncements in the press and even here in Nevada County's liberal blogosphere. Well, I guess not. HERE is the article on the recall.
There is a video attached to the story which you need to watch as well. The leader of the recall is explaining the reasons for recall and his results should send shivers up the spines of all the liberals who want to raise taxes but not cut spending. We have the same issues here in California. Jerry Brown and the democrat controlled legislature are pushing a tax increase here and my guess is it will fail. People across America are hurting real bad economically. Property values have plummeted and more than one half of all homes are under water as far as their value. Unemployment is very high and California leads the way in the high teens. What is the message the politicians send us? Pay more taxes!
Miami-Dade is in Florida of course. Florida is filled with a lot of retirees and snowbirds who own second homes. They are usually the first to be affected by higher taxes. Well, the Mayor was recalled 88% to 12%! Here is a the published reason why the Mayor and a couple of his Commission friends were recalled.
"The campaign to recall Alvarez was launched in October by billionaire businessman Norman Braman after Alvarez successfully pushed for a property tax-rate increase to help plug a gaping budget hole. At the same time, Alvarez pushed for labor contracts with employee unions that included pay hikes for most county workers this year."
