Carlos Alvarez's curtain call

In a last ditch effort to convince voters to keep him in office, Miami-Dade mayor Carlos Alvarez made a final pitch this morning on Michael Putney's show on WPLG.

He basically repeated the same talking points he's been hammering away at for the past few months: His administration has dealt with one billion dollars worth of budget cuts over the past four years without sacrificing essential county services yadda yadda Miami-Dade's crime rate has gone down during his time in office yadda yadda Norman Braman never rode a Metro bus yadda yadda defended raises given to his senior staff two years ago saying he also cut $1.5 million from the mayor's office administrative staff yadda yadda.

But it wasn't what he said on the show but rather what he did afterward that's noteworthy.

A Random Pixels reader spotted the mayor out and about and shot this photo.

Is it just me, or is the mayor looking a lot older these days?

  1. I only want to ask Alvarez 2 questions:

    1.Did he buy (or lease) his 80K BMW from Braman Mototrs?

    2.When was the last time he rode a Metro bus?

    Thank you.
