Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez was removed from office in a recall election this week. A few years ago, GOVERNING's Richard Greene and Katherine Barrett interviewed Alvarez on what it's like to be Miami's first strong mayor.
Check out their interview with Alvarez and county manager George Burgess.
And, of course, Governing.com will have full coverage of today's recall election of the mayor.
