.. to New and Old Problems
A too Belcher priority. Lou proposes a Program of Action to combat Ann Arbor's
chronic housing shortage. This includes construction of two highrises and stimulation
of the private sector. Under Mayor Wheeler's Administration no student housing has been
constructed. In fact, only one student housing unit has been produced in the last 8 years!
Lou Belcher is one of Ann Arbor's leading environmentalists. As a councilperson, Lou has
sponsored or voted for proposals to support the Bottle Bill, to support the banning of
freon gas in Michigan, to improve Ann Arbor's water quality, to control soil erosion,
and to construct more parks within the city limits.
Ann Arbor's Trade Unions have endorsed Republican Lou Belcher. The Labor Leader
ship believes in Lou's commitment to put Ann Arbor's unemployed to work using
avaiiable Federal Funds.
The deplorable condition of Ann Arbor's roadways cannot be tolerated. Mayor Wheeler
has had two years to find a solution. Lou Belcher proposes a 15-Year Plan to begin
immediately, which would properly rebuild the roads that destroy your cars and
bikes. No more expensive band-aid solutions.
PARKS AND RECREATION:
Lou Belcher is a firm believer

Mayor Wheeler voted no to provide a reward to help apprehend the so-called "Ann Arbor
Rapist." He stated that he would rather spend the money on our anti-rape program,
yet oneyear earlier ne voted against funding that very program (December 15, 1975
and January 10, 1977). Lou Belcher's crime prevention program includes reorganiza-
tion of the Police Department and "beefing up" the campus bike patrols.
Lou Belcher is opposed to major changes proposed by Mayor Albert Wheeler concerning
the mayor's duties [including a $22,000 to $32,000 annualsalary increase! (see Michigan
Free Press week of March 201. The mayor also voted to pay council members a salary,
which was in violation of the City Charter. Lou voted against this measure and was
upheld in the courts.
Ann Arbor's "pot law" is an amendment to the City Charter and can only be repealed
by a vote of the people. Furthermore, Lou is satisfied that the law works - people are
hassled less and the police have been freed to pursue legitimate crime.
Lou Belcher is a partner in First Ann Arbor Corporation, a
small business management and consulting firm. Many of the
firms Lou aids are minority owned and managed. He helps
them in gaining financing and in setting up business systems.
Lou is also currently Mayor Pro-Tem, and 5th Ward council-
person. Lou has chaired or served on the following committees:
Parks and Recreation, Comprehensive Employment Training
Act (C.E. T.A.), Parking and Airport and on the Zoning Board
SOLID WASTE MANAGEMENT
Lou has proposed an innovative waste management complex
designed to end the wasteful practice of burying our garbage.
The system, built largely with Federal Funds, will sort out and
recycle glass and metal - with the remainder fueling electrical
In addition to conserving valuable resources, the system is de-
signed to be mostly self-sufficient with revenues from recycled
materials and the power produced covering operating costs.
