"The mayor is contemplating a legal challenge contending that Braman is precluded under the county charter from launching a recall drive now because a separate, unsuccessful effort was launched earlier this year. The charter says that a recall petition cannot be certified ``within one year after a recall petition against him is defeated.''
The plan is to go to court and delay vote gathering efforts slated for election day in November.
Now for more free advice to the Mayor.
Have your PAC "Citizens for Truth" (nice name) ask Braman the following:
1. Why did Braman not join in and help Lazaro Gonzalez' failed recall effort earlier this year?
2. Why does Braman single out Mayor Alvarez whose sole function is to propose the budget when it is the Commissioners who approve the budget?
3. What involvement does city Mayor Tomas Regalado have in the recall? This is especially relevant since Mayor Regalado himself lied about not raising taxes in the City of Miami.
4. Braman owns property in the Miami C.R.A., and given his criticism of the Mega Plan and C.R.A. dealings when Manny Diaz was mayor, why is he silent on C.R.A. matters now, including the $10.4 million transfer of funds to cover the city budget?
This is going to get really interesting in the next few weeks.
Look out for Mayor Regalado asserting himself into this matter.
The motivation for revenge is far too great for him to stay out of this.
