have controlled city government for only two years (1969-71)

of the last 43, but 'in that short time they built the first

public housing in the city, established the main-line and Dial-A-Ride bus systems, passed a strong Housing Code and
Human Rights Ordinance, funded Ozone House, Drug Help and day care centers, established an Affirmative Action
Program for hiring more minority group members and women, enacted ordinances controlling air pollution, billboards
and soil erosion, blocked a Republican-sponsored censorship ordinance; and this is only part of the list.
2. PROGRAMS WITHOUT PRICE TAGS-Almost every HRP proposal is an imitation of programs already started by
Democrats, with a major difference; they promise them in amounts the city has no hope of paying for. Examples: Im-
mediate construction of 5000 units of low-cost housing (at $20,000 per unit, Arbor Park Co-op cost, this comes to $100
million), day care centers for 5000 preschool children costing $18.75 million a year. All this while the city is facing at
least a $500,000 deficit in its $13 million a year budget.
3. RICH COPS???-HRP claims they can fundi their programs from the "waste" in the $2.7 million Police budget, at
the same time that muggings, burglaries and rapes are increasing. They also claim the Police budget is the fastest
growing in the city. In fact, under the Harris Administration, it has been the 5th fastest growing, behind Building and
Safety, Planning, Fire and the District Court budgets.
4. THE SILENT MINORITY-HRP claims it will speak out on the issues if elected, and they shout loudly about Pack-
ard-Beakes, Briarwood and greedy developers. But while Mike Morris and other Democrats spent hours fighting these
ill-conceived projects before City Council and Planning Commission, HRP leaders, most of whom were around Ann
Arbor, were silent.
5. HRP AND GOP LAY OFF WORKERS-Both HRP and the Republicans fought the 1 % income tax, the GOP because,
it "isn't needed" and HRP because it isn't graduated. Graduated taxes ARE much better, but they are expressly for-
bidden by the Michigan Constitution. Democrats have tried to amend that twice by referendum and will try again this
November. Even then, necessary legislation allowing city graduated taxes is, optimistically, years away. What happens
in the meantime? Either revenue is increased by the most unfair, regressive tax of them all, the property tax, o'r city
services are cut and workers are laid off. This is already happening. On May 16, Ann Arbor voters will decide whether
to raise property taxes or allow the budget to be cut. This means higher rents or almost immediate layoffs of 50-60 work-
ers, many low income and black. Not only will the Police and Fire Depts. be cut, but also those programs for the poor,
tenants, elderly and youth, Housing Code enforcement, public transportation, day care, parks, etc.
