Reports say that Uncle Luke has officially announced that he is running for mayor of Miami-Dade County. As previously reported, Miami’s current mayor Carlos Alvarez is facing a recall election on March 15th and one of his opponents is Luke. According to Hiphopwired.com, while talking to reporters, Luke revealed why he decided to run for mayor. He said, “I’m mad frustrated. I get in my car, ride around Liberty City, and everything looks the same as when I was in the neighborhood growing up. I see the same crimes in the same areas. Officers and residents are still getting killed in the community I grew up in. All of that frustrates the hell out of me. Why aren’t we getting it right in Miami-Dade? That’s what is pushing me to run.” Luke plans to lower taxes and increase more affordable houses. The former 2 Live Crew frontman will run against County Commissioner Carloz Gimenez, Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina, former State Legislator Marcelo Llorente and others.
