on the other hand, HRP WARD ONE-With Beth,

c'

strongest candidate here, but
the political arithmetic is all
against them. Most experts look
for a Democratic victory. The
best that moderate Republican
Joyce Hannaum can hope for
in this liberal oriented ward is a
respectable showing.
The Democratic candidate -
Colleen McGee - has probably
been damaged somewhat by
charges from HRP and Republi-
can opponents that she "waffled"
on key issues including rent con-
trol and marijuana. The extent of
this damage, is far from evident
and would have to be consider-
able to give Brunton a real shot.
Last year, HRP barely escaped
the embarrassment of finishing
last in a three-way race. This
year, party strategists have run
a considerably more energetic
campaign, pinning their hopes
on a massive turn-out in the
ward's inner, student - domi-
nated precincts to off-set a pre-
dicted landslide in more staunch-
ly Democratic areas.
The Democrats ,for their part,
are counting on an erosion of
HRP support among increasingly
less radical students, and are ex-
pecting a comfortable margin of
victory.
SECOND WARD -'This is the
ward where HRP is generally
conceded to have its greatest
core strength. If they can't win
here, they probably can't win
anywhere.
Their candidate, Kathy Koza-
chenko, has s c o r e d campaign
points among students more
clearly identifying herself with
the rent control and marijuana
issues than her Democratic op-
ponent, Mary Richman.
The rent control issue may cut
both ways ,however.

BALLROOM

Richman will be aided by the
absence of a GOP opponent and
the presence of an aggressive
anti-rent control scare campaign
by the city's conservatives. If
the ward's Republicans (some
700 voters last year) turn out to
defeat rent control and if a hun-
dred or so of them also vote for
Richman (against Kozachenko)
it should tip the scales in favor
of the Dems in a close race.
WARD FOUR - In this ward,
the smart money is with the
GOP's William Colburn. The
handsome, articulate y o u n g
speech professor has become his
party's "Golden Boy" and his-
candidacy for mayor -- assum-
ing he wins this year - seems
to be a foregone conclusion.
Democrat Jamie Kenworthy is
running a hard, aggressive race
here, making forays after Col-
burn's moderate constituency by
stressing city service and plan-
ning issue, while protecting his
left-liberal flank against HRP in-

cursions by supporting rent con-
trol and $5 dope.
The Fourth Ward is, in many
ways, a microcosm of the city as
a whole, being almost evenly
split between conservative and
liberal voters. Last year, Repub-
lican Richard Hadler nosed out
popular Democrat Ethel Lewis
in a race in which the presence
of HRP's Phil Caroll probably
tipped the balance. This year,
the HRP campaign has been
barely visible. Kenworthy, how-
ever, lacks Lewis' stature and
reputation and will probably lose
in a close race.
THIRD AND FIFTH WARDS
- No surprises are likely here.
Both wards are solid Republi-
can turf. In the Third, Roger
Bertoia is expected to overcome
the handicap of his maverick im-
age and win easily. In the Fifth,
Louis Belcher - an old-time
wheel horse of the GOP estab-
lishment is considered to be a
virtual shoe-in despite charges
that have been raised concerning
alleged dishonesty in his cam-
paign leaflets.

campaign picks
Pelow we present the consensus election predictions of The
Daily's political reporters and predictions solicited from an "in-
sider" from each of Ann Arbor's three political parties.
First Ward

Ann Arbor's student - tenants
are, as a whole, fed up with the
situation. The "yes" vote in stu-
dent precincts should approach
landslide proportions. However,
students, without the support of
liberal Democratic "townies", do
not represent anything approach-
ing an electoral majority in the
city. The Dems, on the whole,
appear sympathetic about rents
but less than enthusiastic about
the HRP proposition which many
of them sincerely believe to be
ill-conceived. This proposal has
a chance only if enough liberals
become antagonized by the hys-
terical tone of the well-heeled
landlord campaign against it.
PROPOSAL 'B' ($5 dope):
Again, it's a students "yes
liberals "maybe" situation. In
the past, Democrats have shown
strong support for decriminaliz-
ation of marijuana. There have
been some technical objections
raised concerning this proposal
as well. But they don't seem as
much an obstacle to liberal sup-
port as is the case with rent
control. $5 dope, like rent con-
trol, will probably lose. But it
might come a whole lot closer.
