Mayors in Miami, Chattanooga and Omaha all being targeted for recalls after tax hikes

Via Glenn Reynolds, I see that the Mayor of Miami is now going to face a recall election:

Mayor Carlos Alvarez of Miami-Dade County faces a recall after opponents gathered enough signatures to force an election. The drive came after the county raised the property-tax rate to balance its budget. The county commission must call an election in 45 to 90 days, Harvey Ruvin, clerk of courts, said Tuesday. Recalls are also being sought in Chattanooga, Tenn., and Omaha after proposed tax increases.

If more politicians in this country are living in fear of angry voters, I'd say that's generally a positive development.
