Close finish seen in 4th Ward

(Continued from Page 1)
The GOP candidate follows his
aty's position on the marijuana
w, claiming HRP's proposal is
unconstitutional"and "really just
means to control the police
Kenworthy has v oi c e d condi-
onal support for both ballot
sues, contending the rent control
an is "too indiscriminate" and
at "rent;control should be lim-
ed to the campus area."
His support for the marijuana
-dinance is less tenuous. He feels
ie law, if voted into effect, would
d in curbing serious crime by
recting police attention away
om pot smokers and dealeers.
HOWEVER THE Democrat pre-
cts that the clause in HRP's
roposal- barring police from en-
rcing the stricter state law will
e thrown out by court action if
ie ordinance passes.
HRP candidate Nichols, a 25-
ear-old librarian at Washtenaw
nommunity College, openly tells
oters, "We do not hope to win in
ie Fourth Ward."
Nichols says she is campaigning
"offer a third choice to the
ectorate" and urge F o u r t h
lard's largely moderate and con-
ervative voters to support the
allot issues.
The lack of HRP-type voters in
he ward was a key factor in the
adical party's decision not to run
full-fledged efort there.
The ward is considerede to be a
ear toss-up between Democrat
nd GOP strength, with Colburn
iven a slight adavntage due to
s incumbency. Last year, Demo-
rat Ethel Lewis' 2925 votes fell
iort of Republican Richard Had-
's 3290, but HRP's Phil Carroll
olled a crucial 1216, provoking
ie Democrats' "spoiler" charges.
IN RECENT Weeks, the Fourth
rard c a m p a i g n has consisted
irgely of a running debate be-
veen Colburn and Kenworthy on
few issues.
eIRP cites
LGH for
state law
riolation

Kenworthy has charged the Re-'
publican administration with shift-
ing city funds and "irresponsibly
allocating" park bond money. He
claims that $120,000 intended for
parks went to the 'building of an
airport hanger and has called on
Colburn to account for this.
Colburn's response has been to
hold up a fact sheet which he
claims explains the city's "inter-
funding;,' he says Kenworthy has
"refused to look at it."
Kenworthy also chides Colburn
for the GOP's passage of the

Packard - Platt shopping p 1 a z a.
which the Republicans promised
to block in. last April's campaign,
but passed unanimously this year
in Council.
The s'hopping center was a hotly
opposed issue by voters in both
the third and fourth wards.
COLBURN STATES that the Re-
publican campaign flyer promising
"no Chatham shopping center at
Packard-Platt" does not bear his
name and that he "did not even
know" about it.

Kenworthy believes that the Uni-
versity should pay property taxes,
and that a halt of "large-project
construction" by the city would
deflate the massive deficit.
To deal with the city debt, Col-
burn agreesthat the University
should "pay its fair share of prop-
erty tax," adding that "a lot of
the programs that were supported
last year are going to be elimi-
nated." He predicts $35,000 to
$40,000 allocated to day care.
The suggested widening of State
St. has been a hotly contested

issue in the fourth ward with Ken-
worthy and Nichols against the
move.
Colburn supports the widening
of State St. but is "leaning to
Main Street being widened." He
also believes that thedbuilding of
the controversial McDonald's in
the campus area and the Packard-
Platt shopping center were the
"right decisions."
Both Kenworthy and Nichols
publicly deplore the decisions to
allow the building of a McDonald's
restaurant on Maynard, and the
Packard-Platt plaza.

ments after this Monday's elec-
tion. Under state law, political .or-
ganizations must file campaign
statements ten days after an elec-
tion.
However Delhey, a Republican,
comiented last night that the evi-
dence cited in the HRP complaint
against the CGH "does not neces-
sarily seem to be as clear cut as
these people (fHRP) have been
alleging."
Delhey further criticized HRP
for "waiting to bring this to my
attention until now, until this
eleventh h o u r situation," and
doubted whether any investigation
could be completed before the
election.
THE HRP meeting with Delhey
follows a similar meeting last
Monday with City Attorney Edwin
Pear, where HRP also charged
CGH with violating city election
laws.
HRP spokespersons expressed
the view that their chances for
prosecution against CGH are great-
er under the stricter state laws.
Corporate contributions to political
organizations are considered illegal
under these statutes regardless of
ignorance of the law by the vio-
lators.
HRP officials maintained that
the evidence cited in their com-
plaint "provides sufficient grounds
for a serious investigation into the
possibilities that multiple viola-
tions of state and local campaign
laws have been committed by
CGH."
THE EVIDENCE in the HRP
complaint has been collected from
three sources:
Campaign finance statements
released by CGH last Tuesday in
accordance with city law, alleged-
ly containing evidence of illegal
contributions,
* A sworn affidavit released
yeesterday by HRP official Diane
Kohn, attesting to alleged use of
employe work time by the rental
agency, McKinley Associates, to
support the CGH; and
* Alleged CGH documents ob-
tained from a secret source, that
were disclosed last Friday by the
Ann Arbor Sun, allegedly contain-
ing proof of the illegal contribu-
tions charges.
MEANWHILE, in a related de-
velopment yesterday, an employe
of McKinley Associates, Elaine
Price, contended that the contro-
versial documents cited as evi-
dence were not official records of
