n McCollough compared the 301 per
of cent rise in property taxes in the state
with a 40 per cent increase in persnal
e incomes over the same period as
e evidence of an unjust property tax
at structure. He added that linking taxes
at to income would force the government
to set priorities.
Ralls concurred. "Milliken spends
money like water and doesn't set
Fitzgerald said he has not yet for-
mulated a policy to equalize the tax
system. However, he said schools
should not rely so heavily on property
tax revenues, but should instead shift
some of their dependence to income tax
revenues. He found fault with the
property tax structure because it hits
hardest those on fixed incomes.
RALLS AND Fitzgerald attacked
Milliken's handling of alleged mental
institution abuses and what they called
his tolerance for unqualified, incom-
petent department heads.
"The department (of Mental Health)
is demoralized and continuously
without leadership," Ralls said. He ad-
ded he would improve the situation by
appointing able department heads.
Ferency also emphasized mental
health in his funding priorities.
Fitzgerald said, "The origin of this
problem (mental institution abuse) is
the same as PBB, and mismanagement
of the budget. It lies with the chief
executive. Milliken doesn't require
toughness from his department heads
and never addresses "problems from
the beginning. "He waits until it's a
crisis," Fitzgerald said, "and then (he)
approaches it when it's a day late and
at least a dollar short."
ALL THE candidates interviewed
advocate a coordinated energy policy.
Ferency strongly opposes nuclear

energy, although he is interested in
spending more money on research and
development of nuclear fusion, a
process which doesn't result in nuclear
waste. Fitzgerald said he would consult
extensively with scientists and en-
vironmentalists before allowing
nuclear plants to locate in Michigan.
Ferency stressed the need to convert
to alternative energy sources such as
wood and alcohol burning, shifting
away from fossil fuels like oil and coal.
He concurred with the rest of the can-
didates that solar energy should be en-
MC COLLOUGH favors tax breaks to
those who conserve energy resources,
and denounced Milliken for not making
a stronger effort to lure experimental
solar energy projects to Michigan. He
also said the mass production of solar
units would not only give Michigan
more energy independence, but would
also create many new jobs.
Every candidate naturally supports
efforts to draw more business and in-
dustry into Michigan, but they differ
over how to do it. Ferency said the state
should promote its tourist industry and
set up an economic development
authority much like the already-
existing state housing authority.
McCollough wants to provide tax
breaks to businesses which expand with
in the state. Fitzgerald reported he
would campaign in other states and
countries to attract businesses.
Ralls said he wants to make the tax
structure more attractive to

tax evasion, of conducting "parallel
