PolitiFact unveils the Carlos-O-Meter to track the promises of Miami-Dade's new mayor





carlos_broken.jpgNewly elected Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez promised during the campaign to slash his own paycheck, post his schedule on the internet and add term limits for county commissioners (we're curious to see how he convinces the commissioners to agree to shorten their own political futures.)

Today, PolitiFact Florida unveils a Carlos-O-Meter to track Gimenez's promises. Just like our promise meter for Gov. Rick Scott, we'll be keeping a close eye on the new mayor and rating him on his progress toward delivering the goods to county voters.
