meeting was very constructive and
very useful."
The presidential advisor said he did
not expect immediate results from the
meeting because he must first hear
from other sources aroundthe country.
"We're going to look into a lot of
things and see what can be done," he
said, "We're going to follow through
with it." He said he did not know if any
new policies or statements would be
issued concerning federal and local
government relations in the near
future.
Belcher said Eizenstat listened inten-
tly as the Michigan spokespersons told
him they felt Carter's domestic policy
concentrates too heavily on aid to large
metropolitan areas, slighting suburbs
and rural areas. Belcher added "Most
of the population doesn't live in urban
areas."

promise.

gets Carter aide
THE MEETING developed from a
recent gathering of the Congressional
Suburban Caucus, a four-month-old
bipartisan group founded by Pursell.
Pursell said 50 congressmen have
joined the caucus to represent their
constituencies.
Pursell said, "The major concern is
revenue sharing, which are our tax
dollars in the first place." He said the
federal, government should give com-
munities more flexibility in the way
they can spend those revenues. "We
have to get away from taxation without
representation," Pursell declared.
Although Belcher and the other of-
ficials travelled as a group, they were
not representing any organization. Ann
Arbor membership in the National
League of Cities, U.S. Conference of
Mayors and the National Council of
Black Elected Officials was excluded
from this year's city budget.
