Daily News Analysis
Though city school board
elections usually generate low
voter interest and turnout, sev-
eral factors could make Mon-
day's contest an exception.
Ten candidates, representing
all sides of the political spec-
trum from radical to conserva-
tive are competing for three
vacant seats on the nine-person
Although there is a five-four
conservative - lib-ral split on
the present board, the outcome
of this year's election could
shift the distribution signifi-
One unknown element in this
year's race is the effect of the
three Human Rights Party (H-
RP) candidates - Curtis Holt,

Gretchen Groth Wilson and
Sonia Yaco.
Citizens to Assure a Respon-
sive Educational System (CA-
RES), a community organiz-
ation which has endorsed Nan-
cy Brussolo and incumbents
Ronald Bishop and Henry
Johnson, has said that HRP
might "split the socially respon-
sive vote."
The Daily in yesterday's edi-
tion incorrectly listed school
board candidate Henry John-
son as Henry Jackson.
Candidates who stand to gain
from the split are Clarence
Dukes, M. Terry Martin, incum-
bent board president Cecil War-
ner and Letty Wickliffe.
An HRP spokesperson, how-

ever, emphasizes that the elec-
tion should be a political one
instead of just a "contest be-
tween personalities."
This election will test HRP's
appeal in non-student areas.
Since this is a city-wide elec-
tion, HRP will have to muster
support across the board. And
unlike the April City "Council
election, HRP cannot count on
a heavy student vote during the
summer. ,
Some observers have said that
members of the community may
vote to insure an HRP loss.
A multitude of issues have
been discussed during the cam-
paign. Candidates have focused
on busing, racism, student
rights, community involvement
in decision making, the credi-
bility of the administration, and

the wiretapping legislation in
the House, says it will help law

ganized crime.
As passed by the House, wire-
tapping wruld be allowed in all
state countics. But the judiciary
committee has amended the bill
to allow wiretapping only in
counties with populations of
400,000 or more, where, accord-
ing to Tierney, most organized
crime is cntered.
