Tallahassee only has five council members, if you include the mayor. Pensacola has ten, including the mayor. The Tallahassee city council members are at-large, meaning the entire city votes on the positions. The at-large districts haven’t hurt minority participation in government. Both the Tallahassee mayor and one council member are African-American.
Pensacola has seven single-member districts. Two seats and the mayor are elected by the entire city.
Tallahassee’s city government is very different from the current Pensacola government. Caton, Fairchild and crew need a better example to argue their points.
