So what now? It would seem that Mayor Carlos Alvarez is a Republican right? A Republican who acted like a Democrat and raised taxes which infuriated people. So he is gone, what fills the void? Does this mean the Democrats have a good shot at taking over here?
That’s why it was reported by the AP. If Ramirez were a Dummycrap, you think this would be in the news?
“So he is gone, what fills the void?”
Conventional wisdom would say that the candidate who runs on the promise to rescind the Alvarez property tax hike is the likely winner, regardless of the “letter” following his name.
A lot of Cuban-American Republicans act like RINOs - Mel Martinez, Rep. Illena Ros-Leithen, the Rep. Diaz-Balart brothers (plural like those mexican american house sisters in CA) not to be confused with the Diaz brothers in Scarface. Another supposed conservative who is soft on the border.
I think this Mayor also got dumped because they taxed for a new baseball stadium for the Marlins even though their attendance is poor. I have a relative down in Key West who mentioned this.
Sounds more like they’re ready for a more conservative mayor.
He didn’t just raise taxes, he also raised salaries for people who were already well paid. Kind of like reducing taxes for the very rich. More and more people are getting really p&*^ed. How many people are aware that the top 1% of the population has as much money as the bottom 50%?
