North Miami Election, Miami Herald had it wrong. By Geniusofdespair

In the paper version of the Miami Herald it said a charter amendment was approved in North Miami, where there was a 24.34% voter turnout, that said:
"The city will require two appraisals to determine a home's true value before the property can be sold."
Not one to believe everything I read, I immediately contacted Councilman Scott Galvin and asked:
"Why 2 appraisals to sell a house. That sounds expensive almost $1,000. What is wrong with the property appraiser appraisal done for free?"
North Miami Councilman Galvin immediately emailed me back and said:
"Herald was wrong. Two appraisals to buy or sell city property."
That makes more sense. The moral of this story: DON'T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ.

The Herald need to get its stories straight, a second grader could have written the article. They ran the story until well into Wednesday morning quoting " 23 of 30 precincts are in" . Must of went to sleep after 9 PM when the results were released. Miami Herald, how about getting the ballot language, before writing a story. Crack reporting at its best.
