Miami Garden Mayor Oliver Gilbert is facing recall petitions, with complaints about the city's crime rate, budget handling and debt. Gilbert is also accused of a violation of the state's campaign law in 2011. He made a $500 donation, which he self-reported and paid a $1,500 fine.
Gibert has been in office as mayor since August, 2012. Before that, he was a councilman since 2008 (he may have been elected as councilman, not clear from the story).
