"Politics is not my
business. People are."
ABOUT MY DISTRICT
Since my district is within the city of Ann Arbor, and
on part of the University campus, its resdents look to them
for most of their services. However, federal and state pro-
grams of health, welfare, job opportunity, etc. are admin-
istered through the county. Additionally, I feel that Com-
missioners from city districts can do an effective job of
liaison to ensure coordination of city and county planning,
roads, transportations, storm and sewer systems; mass
tansit; bicycle paths, health clinics, and other areas of
ooperative effortr
As a Commissioner it would be my concern to brinq
the needs and concerns of my area torthe Board, of those
residents and students in my area; which to this time has
not been fully done. 1 would also like to be. informed as to
the needs and concerns of other areas where I find con-
flict between my area and those I represent and other
areas. I would propose public discussions to talk out the
differences and reach workable solutions with all involved.
want my neighbors, students and other residents to be
nvolved, as I am involved; because I believe that once
are aware of the problems they bring sound common
nse.to the solutions.

Senate
overturns.
.Ford's
vetoj
I i
WASHINGTON (P)-The Sen-
ate yesterday overrode Presi-
dent Ford'S veto of the railroad
retirement bill, enacting into
law the $7 billion federal sub-
sidy legislation.
The vote marked the first
time a veto by President Ford
has been overturned.
THE BILL is designed to put
on its feet the virtually bank-
rupt railroad retirement sys-
tem by committing $285 million
in federal funds annually for the
next 25 years, a total of $7.1
billion.
Ford said this was unfair to
the taxpayers and that Congress
ought to be able to come up
with a better plan.
However, sponsors of the leg-
islation who have struggled
with the problems of the system
for years said they knew of no
better solution.
THEY POINTED out that fu-
ture pension benefits will be
trimmed back under the com-
promise plan included in the
bill. If there is no federal sub-
sidy, even current pension pay-
ments must be cut back ,they
contended.
The House vote to override
was 360-12. So far Ford has ve-
toed six bills; the House tally
was his first setback on any of
these measures.
About 1 million retired work-
ers and survivors now receive
railroad retirement payments.
The industry has approximately
600,000 workers on its current
payrolls.
