Haitian National Elected To FL Office

 MIAMI, FL - A Haitian national who was a former North Miami city councilman has been declared the winner of a Miami Dade County Commission seat for District 2.

Jean Monestime, President of Jacob – Monestime & Associates, LLC, a full service real estate firm located in North Miami, beat sitting commissioner Dorrin Rolle. The win is historic since it is the first time a Haitian American has won the seat and the first time in 16 years that a challenger has been able to unseat a sitting county commissioner.

In commenting on the win, Commissioner- Elect Monestime said, `We came in with huge commitment and the determination to win. At the end of the day, when there is crime or unemployment, it doesn`t only affect Haitian Americans. It affects everybody. We have to represent everybody. We will represent everybody.`

Monestime collected less than one-fourth of Rolle`s campaign funds but managed to still win by several points. District 2 encompasses much of Liberty City, Opa-locka and North Miami. The Haitian national had accused the African American Rolle of trying to pit African-Americans versus Haitian-Americans in the election.

Monestime said he reached out to a diverse mix of leaders and advocates ``to convey that by coming together we can do better for the community.``

Congrats continue to pour in on Monestime`s Facebook page.
