Campaign clean-up
BULLARD? Is it a new traffic law? Maybe Bullard is
the name of several hundred streets in Ann Arbor. A
new laundry detergent? A social disease? Mouthwash?
What is this bullshit?
At nearly every corner in Ann Arbor the word Bul-
lard appears on a isticker. Apparently they are advertise-
ments for Perry Bullard, a local politician, who won the
Democratic nomination for state representative in Tues-
day's primary. However, the stickers are illegal and will
cost the city a good deal of money to remove.
Robert Hartwell, Asst. Director of Traffic Engineer-
ing says that it will take a minimum of two days for a
two-man crew to remove the political advertisements.
At $20 per hour this represents a minimum cost of
$160.00 to the city. Additionally, some of the street signs
are permanently damaged and will require replacement
at a cost of $25 each.
Bullard said yesterday that the stickers will be re-
moved by his own staff "sometime after the Nov. elec-
tion when we get around to it." This is grossly unsatis-
factory.
A S THE CANDIDATE with the greatest number of dam-
aging stickers, Bullard should display the integrity
of having his own signs removed immediately. They do
little to enhance aesthetic quality of the city and to
many residents, their continued presence is creating an
eyesore. Bullard promised during his campaign that he
would be responsive to the needs of the people. We can't
think of any action more responsible than saving the
taxpayers a few bucks.

Letters to
Shapiro staff
To The Daily:
AT THE RISK of sounding like
sour grapes, I must take strong ex-
ception with the Daily's Aug. 9
story on the congressional primary
race, in which Walter Shapiro's
campaign was referred to as "un-
der-staffed." On the contrary, the
Shapiro campaign was the best-
staffed of all six contenders in
that race. In the face of enormous
expenditures by other candidates
for newspaper and radio a d s,
Shapiro came close to carrying the
whole thing off. And the one factor
which more than any other helped
to compensate for the lack of funds
was the large and intensely dedi-
cated group of volunteers who lit-
erally "worked day and night" (as
WAAM put it) to try and prove
that slick imagemaking and high-
ly-paid workers do not necessarily
guarantee victory.
And we almost did it. On elec-
tion day, our best guess is that
over 150 people of all ages and var-
ious political leanings took part in
working the polls, pounding on
doors and seeing to the myriad

The Daily
other details of an efficient elec-
tion day operation. Aside from tok-
en payments to our campaign man-
ager and office manager, not one
person working for Shapiro re-
ceived any money for their consid-
erable time and effort. In spite of
that, or because of it, perhaps, we
managed to cover every polling
place in the district where we felt
such coverage would be valuable.
And that says nothing of the days
and weeks of preparation which
led up to Tuesday's primary.
That we lost is, I think, more a
testament to our political imma-
turity than a victory for the old
politics of accommodation and
compromise. While a number of
political veterans were most help-
ful in giving us advice, none of the
people involved in the day-to-day
drudgery brought any campaign
experience with them to the or-
ganization. We were novices when
we started, but we have learned
a great deal. And those lessons
will not be forgotten.
