Dems
By DAN RUBEN
FOUR LIBERAL Democrats
are seeking the nomination
for Congress from this district.
The winner of the August 6th
primary will face Marvin Esch
in the fall campaign. The can-
didates are Ron Egnor, an
Ypsilanti attorney; Marj Lan-
sing, a professor at Eastern
Michigan University; Ed
Pierce, the founder of the Sum-
mit Medical Center for low in-
come people; and John Reu-
ther, the nephew of the late Wal-
ter Reuther, and a former cam-
paign organizer for George Mc-
Govern.
All of the candidates are run-
ning on platforms that call for
the impeachment of President
Nixon, strict new campaign fi-
nance reforms, greater con-
gressional control over the bud-
get, and a substantial increase
in funding for public service.
These programs would shift
the present burden on lower
and middle income people to
the wealthy and the corpora-
tions.
The campaign has been low
key, with the contenders focus-
ing their attacks on Esch and
the Nixon administration. Still,
each has individual perspec-
tives and priorities and they

strongly believe that they would
bring unique assets to the Con-
gress. Egnor emphasizes his
study of parliamentary proce-
dure in the Congress. He
claims that in - order "to deal
with the divided Democratic
party, you've got to know the
ways of Congress."
LANSING POINTS out that
there are only fourteen women
in the Congress and that 55 per
cent of the members are law-
yers. "Congress needs an in-
fusion of members from all
walks of life," she maintains.
"The second Congressional dis-
trict, with more full time col-
lege students than any other..
district in the country, needs a
representative who is more
than a fair weather friend of
education."
Pierce contends his exper-
ience as one of the few family
Sdoctors in Congress would be
invaluable "in formulating an
economical and efficient health
care plan."
Reuther maintains that his
candidacy ishavinga positive
impact on incumbent Marvin
Esch. Esch, he points out,
changed his position on im-
peachment the day before Renu-
ther was to announce his can-
didacy.

The second Congressional dis-
trict, comprising Ann Arbor,
Ypsilanti, Plymouth, Monroe,
and Livonia is highly diverse.
Any Democrat hoping to un-
seat Marvin Esch will have to
win the support of the District's
sharply divided Democratic
factions.
The most volatile issues in the
district include busing, abor-
tion, amnesty, and the issue of
crime and drugs.
Egnor and Reuther said they
were opposed to busing for in-
tegration purposes though they
strongly opposed a constitu-
tional amendment which would
ban busing.
Lansing said she favors the
improvement of all public
schools through "massive fed-
eral funding."
Pierce, an integrationist, says
that "where busing is legally
mandated we must emphasize
such concerns as the safety
and convenience of all individ-
uals involved. We must view
