RONNOR
53rd LEGISLATIVE DISTRICT
Mike Renner is the Republican candi-
date for the State House of Representa-
tives from the newly created 53rd
legislative district, which encompasses
most of the city of Ann Arbor. Young
but experienced in government, Mike
will graduate from The University of
Michigan Law School this December.
Ann Arbor has been' his home since,
entering the University in 1965, and
Mike has been active in local political

most important issues in state govern-
ment today:
EDUCATION.. ."Quality education is
the issue of the day in Michigan. Every
child in this state should be allotted
equal educational resources. I support
state financing of education provided
the state government leaves all control
to citizen elected, local school boards.
This program will do much more than
busing ever could to provide equal op-
portunity to Michigan citizens of all
races. Cross district busing does noth-
ing to cure unequal education, it mere-
ly gives the inequalities to different
students. It absorbs a huge amount of
money at a time when education is
financially hard pressed. I am uncon-
vinced that busing is a positive step
toward solving racial prejudice, but I am
completely convinced it is a negative
step for local control of education."
TAX REFORM..."AII taxes are unfair,
but Michigan's property tax stands
supreme. , Property assessment is re-
lated neither to the taxpayer's ability
to pay, nor to the degree of government
services provided to that taxpayer. I
therefore favor the proposal to sub-
stantially abandon the property tax
and replace it with an income tax. As-
surances must be made that landlords
will pass a portion of their decreased
tax burden to the tenant as reduced

of the Michigan voters in November."
ENVIRONMENT. . ."Much political
talk is voiced in favor of environmental
protection. Yet, with the exception of
Ray Smit, few Michigan legislators have
acted' vigorously. I favor, and pledge
to work for, state involvement in land
use planning. Only on the state level
can we hope to adequately coordinate
the preservation of all Michigan re-
sources. Local planning and zoning
should continue, but Lansing ought to
have a voice in approving local master
plans. Environmentally disturbing
roadside advertising still exists in this
state. Legislation should prohibit all
billboards not travel oriented, i.e.,
restaurants, gas, and lodging, while
strictly controlling those which are
so oriented."
PRISON REFORM.. ."The most glar-
ing cause of our presently high crime
rate is the inability of our penal institu-
tions to "cure" the criminal.; A large
percentage of present felonies are com-
mitted by people with previous con-
victions. Our prisons must be rede-
signed to provide true rehabilitation,
counseling, psychological aid, educa-
tion, job training, and medical atten-
tion. Hopefully such .a system could
return to society men and women pre-
pared to cope with and contribute to
everyday life; rather than hardened
criminals whose only skills are murder

WHAT DO YOU THINK?
Perhaps a legislator's most important job is to listen to
the people he represents-all the people, not just some of
them-and do his best to translate their concerns into ef-
fective action. Mike Renner knows this from practical
experience, and he wants you to share your ideas and con-
cerns during the campaign as well as after the election. List-
ed below are a number of key issues in state government.
You're invited to take a minute to check the two (ormore)
which you feel are most important. Your comments are

also welcome.

Comments:
GET INVOLVED! Mike wants to involve as many people
of as many different political persuasions as possible in this
campaign. From addressing envelopes to working on the
issues, there's something for everybody to do.
O YES! I'd like to work on Mike Renner's campaign.
