Peace, So Far, for the Seijas Vote
All is quiet in Natacha Seijas country. Today district 13 voters are turning out to the polls to say yea or nay to recall the four-term county commissioner. As of this afternoon, there are no reports of Seijas's chief of staff Terry Murphy haranguing anti-Seijas campaigners at the Miami Lakes library. And even though the mean queen was spotted at the Goodlet Park precinct, Seijas did not verbally abuse any of her opponents.
At the Miami Lakes Community Center, former Miami-Dade transit director Danny Alvarez was among the voters who punched yes, voting for the recall. Alvarez says Seijas has neglected Miami Lakes, where he lives, for too long. He was especially upset over the commissioner's opposition to the widening of NW 87th Avenue. "She's made my life terrible," he said.
