I was attracted to Mo Udall's presidential campaign
by his honesty, clear thinking, deep concern for the
environment, and his warmth and understanding of
people. These same qualities inspired me to see Lou
Belcher elected Mayor of Ann Arbor.
Lou and I may not always see eye to eye on every
issue, but 1 am confident in his genuine concern for
people, judgment, and leadership abilities. He will
make one of Ann Arbor's finest mayors.
