Interview with Renault Robinson
QUESTION 18
MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Now, at that point, did he make you his campaign chairman?

RENAULT ROBINSON:

No, he didn't make, I was already, I was the campaign organizer.

MADISON DAVIS LACY:

Campaign chairman, did he make you a campaign chairman?

RENAULT ROBINSON:

No, he didn't. That was a role I assumed because I was in a key position in the minds of all the players and I was also trying to raise money, keep the support base in order, keep Harold at the trough, I mean all of it. So, by virtue of definition of my role, I became the campaign organizer. The role of campaign chairman or campaign, ah, manager were functionaries. The role of keeping everybody together, quelling disturbances, bringing people who didn't like each other into the same room, that was my role. My ability to get people to, to submerge their differences to work toward a common goal, was my strength in this thing and to keep Harold on line. Because Harold was not frantic for running for mayor, believe me.
