Luther Campbell Running For Mayor Of Miami
« on: April 12, 2011, 06:39:43 AM »
After a couple weeks of hemming and hawing, it's official: Luther Campbell is running for mayor Miami-Dade County. Current mayor Carlos Alvarez is facing a recall election on March 15, and Campbell feels like he can take him in the election. You can watch the interview with him above, where he talks about the reasons for running for mayor.

When asked why he’s running, Campbell told the weekly publication that he’s “mad frustrated… I get in my car, ride around Liberty City, and everything looks the same as when I was in the neighborhood growing up. I see the same crimes in the same areas. Officers and residents are still getting killed in the community I grew up in. I go to a city like Atlanta that has sensible affordable housing, and no one is being murdered. I go to Miami International Airport and see the same construction that has been going on for like a hundred years. All of that frustrates the hell out of me. Why aren’t we getting it right in Miami-Dade? Why is our government only serving one set of people? That’s what is pushing me to run.”

That actually seems pretty sensible from the guy behind "Me So Horny." He also talks about trying to get more taxes from strippers, and says he isn't worried about his past at all. Read his platform here.

He's a bit off base with his ATL murder rate citing but I understand where Brother Luke is coming from.

My gut reaction is  :no:.

Quote
“I think we can stimulate the economy with a tax on strippers,” Campbell said. “They make all this money and don’t pay taxes. I’d take that cash and put it into a fund where it supports youth athletics for girls like cheerleading or softball.”


Dang!!!  :(

I saw the changes in Atlanta but did not know that the city "changed that much."

Atlanta was the first city with public housing in 1936.  In 2010 it became the first city to get rid of public housing.  I wonder what are all of the changes that he is proposing for Miami.
