Jim Rosenfeld and Brian Tauber with Mayor Dennis Archer.

Tian Tauber hopes to per-
suade his friends to move
to Detroit.
I'd love to make moving
to Detroit a fad," said Mr.
Tauber, 27, recently appointed
by Detroit's new Mayor Dennis
Archer as an assistant for eco-
nomic development.
Before he began his first
week, Mr. Tauber moved into a
temporary apartment down-
town. He and his wife, Laura,
plan to move into a new home
in the Palmer Woods neighbor-
hood within a month.
"A lot of people say they
would consider (moving to De-
troit)," Mr. Tauber said. "When
we were growing up, we never
considered Detroit would actu-
ally be our address. So much of
that is perception. There is so
much to do in the city."
All Detroit employees are re-
quired to live within the city lim-
its. And the new mayor would .
not allow any appointees to be-
gin their duties until residency
was established.
Now Mr. Tauber is concen-
trating on his temporary job re-

sponsibilities. Until mid-
February, when Betty Turner
starts her appointment as di-
rector of housing, Mr. Tauber
will serve as acting deputy hous-
ing director.
It's a position that has given
Mr. Tauber some real on
training.
"I know a lot about housing,"
he joked. "I've always lived in
a house."
Meanwhile, Mr. Tauber and
Lisa Webb, the acting housing
director, were called to the scene
Jan. 6, a day after housing of-
ficials arrived at the Jeffries
housing project to evict five of
35 squatter families.
In a three-hour meeting, the
duo promised to draw up leases
for the squatters, and they
called a moratorium on all evic-
tions.
"I'm comfortable with the de-
cision," Mr. Tauber said. "We
did the right thing. We told
them we were not there to fight
them."
Mr. Tauber said he and Ms.
Webb were following Mayor
Archer's wishes.

"We knew his prinicple,s," Mr.
Tauber said. "He told us to
make a deal."
The past week was "surreal"
for Mr. Tauber, who first tried
his hand in politics as a sched-
uler for Sen. Carl Levin's 1990
campaign while he was a law
student at the University of
Michigan.
Mr. Tauber, who serves on
the board of the Young Adult Di-
vision of the Jewish Federation
and is the YAD liaison to Jew-
ish Vocational Service, served
on the staff of Mr. Archer's win-
ning campaign.
"I'm interested in public ser-
vice," Mr. Tauber said. Although
he views politics as fascinating,
"it turns my stomach."
When Mr. Tauber begins his
job as an assistant to Mayor
Archer for economic develop-
ment, he hopes to "minimize the
politics and maximize sub-
stance."
He has been pretty busy since
taking his post last week.
"In the past two days," he said
after his first week of work, 'Tye
packed in two months of work."
