Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

With the news that Miami Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez backs the recall of commissioner Natacha Seijas, we've reached gridlock in government. That led us to this wonderful diatribe on Eye on Miami.

Our traffic is among the worst in the nation because successive generations of county commissions--but especially this one--have failed to fully account for the costs of development.

The county commission is the reason why the infrastructure backlog the county alone is close to $10 billion.

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
