Lou Belcher strongly believes in our present "Citizen-
involvement" type of governmerot.

The Issue:
Ann Arbor has a "weak-mayor. strong-administrator"
type of city government. Policy decisions are determined
by citizens who are elected to serve on city council and
implemented by the full-time paid city administrator. This
form-of city government has given us budget surpluses for
the last three years under the able direction of our city
administrator. Mr, Wheeler wants to change this system.
Lou Belcher does not.
Mayor Wheeler's
* Mayor Wheeler wants the Mayor's position to be a four-
year term paying $30,000 to $35,000 per year - and
this would be in addition to the full-time city adminis-
trator. (Chamber of Cqmmerce debate, March 9. 1977)
He voted yes to establish a Public Officers Compensa-
tion Committee to provide salaries for council members,
even though such pay is in violation of our City Charter.
Nov. 17, 1975
Mayor Wheeler voted against the resolution that would
have placed the question of pay for council on the ballot
for the citizens to decide. Dec. 8. 1975
He voted against an ordinance which would have de-
nied the Compensation Commission's recommendation

Mayor Pro-Tem
Lou Belcher's stand:
In every single instance. I voted the opposite of Mayor
Wheeler and in some cases, sponsored the resolution
I am firmly convinced that paying the Mayor $35,000 per
year and paying council will destroy our time-honored
tradition of citizens donating their time to serve our city.
Instead, we will have. a government run by paid politicians.
Our city charter provides many checks and balances and
has proved to be a very clean and effective form of gov-
ernment. I don't believe the same would be true of a
government run by paid politicians.
Under Mayor Wheeler's proposal, the Mayor would run
our city - yet he would retain the administrator's position.
This would mean our city employees would have two
bosses and develop into total chaos.
Our time-tested system of non-paid citizen service should
be retained. If I am elected Mayor. I will fight to keep our
present form of government.
