Wayne County Executive
William Lucas does not believe
that he can have a direct effect
on Louis Farrakhan or other ex-
tremists within the black com-
munity, but I am a different
example" for that community.
The most highly-visible black
elected official in Michigan —
after Detroit Mayor Coleman
Young — told a group of Jewish
leaders last week that his career
in politics "sends the right mes-
sage" to the community.
"Whether I win (an election)
or not," Lucas said, "it
encourages others to take the
step forward. It is the easiest
thing in the world to be a de-
magogue, to say, 'Burn baby,
burn.' It is harder to cooperate.
Israel would not last one week if
its people did not cooperate with
each other."
Lucas was the guest speaker
for the third breakfast session
this year of the Young Leader-
ship Cabinet of the United
Jewish Appeal and the Jewish
Welfare Federation. In a 20-
minute talk before taking ques-
tions from the audience, Lucas
discussed his nine-day summer
visit to Israel and his positive
impressions of the country. (See
The Jewish News, July 26, Page

Responding to a question
about the status of the historic
black-Jewish coalition in the
U.S., Lucas said the last ten
years have seen more racism
among Jews and more anti-
Semitism among blacks. The
1967 riot in Detroit was the
turning point in this area, he
said, because it led to the
breakup of neighborhoods and
the separation of individuals.
"Now, I hope, this separation
is turning around. No one can
stand alone" and effect change.
Lucas added that political use of
the differences between blacks
and Jews seems to be on the
wane.
County Executive Lucas is
prominently mentioned as a
candidate for governor next
year. He told the Jewish leaders
that he changed from the Demo-
cratic to Republican Party "to

send a message to a large group
of people who had not used their
vote in a proper (effective) way."
During his travels through
Michigan to study the possibil-
ity of running for governor,
Lucas was gratified to find citi-
zens "willing to listen to a black
person in counties where no
blacks live. It is exciting to
reach out to these people and
have them reach back to some
degree." He said his state-wide
trips allow him to represent
Wayne County, to remind people
that the county is turning
around its budget, that it is not
crime-ridden, nor does it always
have its hands for state aid.
On the issue of gun control,
Lucas said he has always fa-
vored gun control legislation,
but now believes that local con-
trols are ineffective. He advo-
cated national laws on gun con-
trol.
Responding to a question
about his views on "reproductive
freedom and a' woman's right to
choose," Lucas said, "I am
against abortion." It was his
only comment on the subject.
.,He said that his most difficult
task as Wayne County Execu-
tive was the closing of the
county general hospital. His de-
cision on the hospital was met
with heavy criticism in some
quarters, and he was the target
of racial slurs from some in the
black community. "But now, 14
months later, people are still
getting care, the county is no
longer losing $18 million per

year, and the private company
that is operating the hospital is
making a profit."
Lucas was introdced by former
Jewish Welfare Federation
President Alan E. Schwartz. Dr.
Conrad Giles, who has chaired
"the Breakfast Club" meetings,
announced that three co-
chairman will continue the
series: Norman Pappas, Dr.
David Harold and Sally Krugel.
The group expects to have 6-8
meetings yearly and future
speakers will include Yael
Dayan, daughter of the late
Moshe Dayan, and Max Fisher.
