Seijas & Gimenez on mayor's job

Recalled Miami-Dade Commissioner Natacha Seijas has said several times since she came out of hiding a few weeks ago, first in an El Nuevo Herald and then on WQBA, that Mayor Carlos Gimenez -- who served on the dais with her for six years -- didn't actually run for his seat.

"He didn't run for mayor. He ran for manager," said Seijas, who is critical of his budget cuts and micro-managing.

Gimenez has not been as accessible or easy to get a response from since he was campaigning for office, so Ladra tracked him down at a Miami-Dade Young Democrats meeting Tuesday night at City Hall Restaurant downtown.

"Natacha Seijas should read the county charter," Gimenez said with that same sly smile he's had since his confidence returned just before the runoff and he got his sexy back.

"The voters of Miami-Dade eliminated the county manager's position and put those duties under the mayor," the mayor said.

"So, I did not run for manager. But I did not run for mayor," he said and smiled again.

"I ran for strong mayor."

I have decided to moderate comments for a while as there are some that are simply off-subject and have become personal and offensive in nature, attacking not just me but others through this venue.

Comments that add substance and context to the news and issues in the blog will be posted. Comments that use profanity and abuse this open space to attack others will be saved and, when called for, sent to the appropriate authorities.
