Lobbyist

Continued from Page 1

of a concept proposed by past
Federation President Dr. Con-
rad Giles, who suggested
opening a Lansing office to
represent political needs of
the community.
"It is probably a good
thing to do," said Rep. Max-
ine Berman, D-Southfield,
recently named to the House
appropriations committee.
is not quite as simple as
saying, 'We have Jewish
legislators there who will
look out for us.' We will. The
lobbyist is not going to be
hired to swing votes.
"We really need someone
in Lansing without the bag-
gage that legislators carry,"
Ms. Berman said. "This per-
son can work with both par-
ties."
Ms. Berman and others
pointed to Noble Kheder,
who heads a lobbying firm in
Lansing. Jewish leaders said
Mr. Kheder was largely
responsible for helping the
Jewish Home For Aged ob-
tain a long-awaited cer-
tificate of need that will
allow Borman Hall in
Detroit and Prentis Manor
in Southfield to move to a
facility in West Bloomfield.
"The certificate of need
process for the Jewish Home
For Aged would not have
moved as it did without the
help of Mr. Kheder," Mr.
Schlussel said. "The com-
munity needs to express

itself like this on an ongoing
basis."
Although most of the
community's six-member
Jewish legislative team-
were supportive of hiring a
lobbyist, Sen. Jack Faxon, D-
Farmington Hills, called
such plans "reprehensible."
"I don't know why every-
body thinks after an election
there is a need to hire an
intermediary to do what
they just elected me to do,"

"I don't know why
everybody thinks
after an election
there is a need to
hire an
intermediary to do
what they just
elected me to do."

Sen. Jack Faxon

said Mr. Faxon. "Obviously,
people like having a
lobbyist. Then they don't
have to make calls them-
selves.
"It is like offering me a
frozen dinner as opposed to
-making a home-cooked
meal," Mr. Faxon said. "I'd
prefer the home-cooked
meal."
Mr. Schlussel said he and
other representatives of the
Jewish community still plan
to maintain personal con-
tacts with legislators. ❑
