TAUB from page


Promotes Reading

Increasing literacy among children and
their parents is another of Taub's goals
if elected state representative. She
plans to implement some pilot pro-
grams wherein parents and children
will learn to read together.
"Children need to learn how to
read, whether it's through comic books
or the Bible," she said.
Another piece of legislation that
Taub hopes to enact involves the vot-
ing rights of people that are quadriple-

gics. Currently, quadriplegics and oth-
ers who do not have the use of their
hands are denied the right to vote
because they cannot sign their own
names. Taub would like a law passed
that allows these people to vote if they
have a physician's affidavit document-
ing their condition.
A strong proponent of separating
religion and government, Taub oppos-
es non-public-school, state-funded
tuition vouchers and prayer in public

complicated," she said. "Nobody is
embracing the shades of gray."
Weisberg, who holds a master's of
science degree in finance from Walsh
College in Troy, believes her financial
background will be an asset in terms
of long-range planning and budgeting,
especially in light of the shrinking
funding for needed services through-
out the state.

Expanding Mass Transit

The candidate also would work
toward developing a comprehensive
mass transportation system through-
out southeastern Michigan. It would
include a connection to Detroit •

a more viable location for conventions
and other large business functions.
