Interview with Jessie McCrary
QUESTION 17
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Does the at-large voting system here in Dade County, Miami, you know, at-large representation. Does that, is that a strong factor?

JESSIE McCRARY:

The at-large voting system is bad for Black Miami. It is most difficult to get elected in this county of two million, almost two million people, with at-large voting. We have never had a single person elected in this county who is Black, full time, except where the person was first appointed and then built some coalitions. But the voting has gone, when people run along racial lines.

MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Stop down.
