Let's talk politics.
We're a group of people who worked in various capacities in the
McGovern campaign. We live in Ann Arbor. We're frankly concerned
that a city which voted 62% for McGovern last fall will be lost by de-
fault to the same Nixon philosophies the city rejected in November.

people who can.

First, you should know that Ann Arbor's mayor has the veto power
over city legislation, it takes eight of the ten council votes to override a
veto. Conservative Republicans control three of the five council seats not
up for re-election this year.
Thus, we could elect progressive candidates in all five of the coun-
cil races and still lose control of the city to a conservative mayor back-
ed by three incumbent Republicans.
There are three candidates running for mayor: Republican Steph-
enson, HRP Kaimowitz, and Democrat Mogdis. Stephenson comes, philo-
sophically and literally, from the same people who brought you Richard
Nixon. If elected, he makes it amply clear that he will dismantle every
people-oriented city program in 'existence-just as Nixon is gutting fed-
eral programs.

There are two progressive candidates: Mo g d is and
There are differences in their programs. But these translate,
terms, to differences in technique and style much more than

in practical

But there is a very real difference.
For Kaimowitz to win, HRP would have to DOUBLE its best previous
showing. To accomplish this, HRP would have to find massive support in
parts of the city where they have never received more than a handful
of votes. It's just not 'going to happen.
But we are not making a lesser-of-two-evils argument.
Franz Mogdis is a positive choice. He has a solid record of skillful
service to progressive causes. He has demonstrated political courage in
his stands while a member of the planning commission. He will be a good
mayor from the start, probably the best Ann Arbor has ever had.
We cannot stand the burden of conservative Republican control of
government from the White House all the way to City Hall. We believe
the responsible course for progressives in this election is solid support for
Franz Mogdis.
