Incumbents, beware

With almost all precincts reporting results, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez and Commissioner Natacha Seijas have been ousted from office.

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

The results will be likely be certified by Friday, when Alvarez and Seijas must vacate their offices.

Almost 9 of 10 Miami-Dade County voters cast their ballots to recall the mayor and an 18 year incumbent commissioner for incompetence, increasing taxes, overspending, cronyism and arrogance. Neither were under criminal investigation, they had simply ignored the will of the voters.

We will see more incumbents lose in 2012.
