Mike Calhoun served a term on the Miami-Dade County Commission 30 yearsago, and wants to get back into public office. He’s running for mayorof Miami Beach, and generally, during “citizens hour” at citycommission meetings, he speaks. At the meeting two weeks ago, Calhounhad an unusual request:

“Mr. Mayor,” said Calhoun, who is 72 years old, “in the name of thepeople of Miami Beach, I ask that you resign from office sine die. Thatmeans right now.

The way hesees it, he’s spreading the word. The word of Ron Bibace, that is. Andhe’s not the only one.
