Earl Greene too nice a guy.
BY JOHN GOYER
Earl Greene is a nice guy.
ut his opponents - the most out-
ken of whom come from within his
own party - say Councilman Greene
(D-Second Ward) is too nice a guy.
ACCORDING TO this vocal faction of
the city's Democratic party, Greene is
a patsy for the Republicans, who hold
seven of the eleven seats on City Coun-
Greene's critics include two of his
three fellow Democrats on council'
slie Morris (D-Second Ward) and
n Latta (D-First Ward). The two are
backing Greene's opponent, LSA junior
Stacey Stephanopoulos, in a Second
Ward primary on Monday. The winner
in the primary will go on to face
Republican candidate and LSA junior
Toni Burton in the April 7 city elections.
GREENE SEEMS to differ
philosophically from Morris, who is the
Democratic caucus leader on City.
Council. "She has her own ideas of what
Abew ants to get done. She told
ebody that she was angry with me
because I didn't follow her leadership.
city election '80
Well, everybody knows that her politics
are very negative," he said.
"I have no idea why they (Morris and
Latta) don't support me," Greene said
recently, "If you want to compare
records, look at Ken Latta's record. It's
a joke. If he wants to compare records
with me - any day of the week."
Greene's supporters, such as former
City Councilwoman Eunice Burns, say
Greene "has been effective with what
he's had to work with," alluding to Lat-
ta and Morris.
A GREENE supporter last week
charged that Morris was backing
Stephanopoulos in order to build a base
of support for herself to use in a future
bid for the mayor's office.
Greene brushes aside suggestions
that the heavily student-populated
Second Ward should be represented by
a student. "Can frogs represent frogs?
Can horses represent cows? I think it's
a silly issue. The question is: Who has
the experience and who can represent
Greene also says he's the best can-
didate because "I can represent
anybody, I think, because I'm sensitive.
I have a real ability to relate to people."
THE 43-YEAR-OLD music teacher at
the Willow Run school said he thinks "it
takes somebody with the breadth of ex-
perience to represent the ward" - a
barb aimed at his opponent, a student.
Greene ran unsuccessfully for the
Second District Congressional seat in
1978 against Republican Carl Pursell.
Campaigning door-to-door last Sun-
day in the Second Ward, Greene told
voters, "I've been on council four
years. I have a good record on impor-
tant issues, like housing and tenant
safety. I'm a progressive Democrat."
STANDING IN their doorways last
weekend, people told Greene that the
number one issue in the Second Ward is
the high cost of housing.
Greene pointed out to voters last Sun-
day that he introduced and pushed
through council an ordinance requiring
deadbolt locks on rental units, and had
supported the ordinance forcing lan-
dlords to install smoke detectors in
Greene also backs rent control, which
he said would be administered through
the board of directors of the Downtown
If the city could afford it, Greene
said, he would beef up the housing in-
spection unit. write energy saving
clauses into the city's housing code, and
spend more on human services.
But Greene acknowledged that such
spending moves would be unlikely since
council Republicans are looking to cut
taxes this year.

Stephanopoulos to face first test
on Monday in 2nd Wa
By JOHN GOYER
Having gained the support of half the
current Democratic City Council,
Stacey Stephanopoulos faces her first
real test of her ability to earn Ann Ar-
bor's student vote when she opposes
Earl Greene in Monday's Democratic
primary for the Second Ward.
The 20-year-old LSA junior from
Cleveland, who is majoring in political
ience, opened her campaign for City
uncil early - in November - and
has since been using sophisticated tac-
tics to turn out voters.
EARLY IN the fall, Stephanopoulos
and several friends formed the Studen-
ts for a Progressive Government,
which then concentrated on registering
students to vote.
She has a campaign manager, a
finance chairperson - both students -
and a senior campaign advisor, law
*udent Marc Abrams.
As she goes door-to-door in the
Second Ward, she works from a list of
registered voters and addresses, com-
piled from computer records.
BUT COMPARED to her opponent in
Monday's primary, incumbent Coun-
cilman Earl Greene, Stephanopoulos is
an unpolished campaigner. Trudging'
through the cold on Wednesday
evening, Stephanopoulos knocked on
doors and handed her campaign leaflet
to each registered voter. But she did not
tell them more about herself, nor did
she press voters to talk about issues.
Stephanopoulos has the support of
two of the three Democratic coun-
cilmembers who serve with Greene on
council. Stephanopoulos and the two
council members contend that Greene
has been ineffective on council.
Stephanopoulos said she is running
because she sees apathy among studen-
ts and because she thinks a student can
best represent the ward, which includes
the hill dorms, East Quad, Bursley, and
Oxford Housing. Ninety-two per cent of
the housing in the Second Ward is rental
SHE SUPPORTS forums in dorms on
housing and other issues to "bring it to
'em. I really think you have to do that
with students, go out and grab them."
In November of 1978 she worked on
her first political campaign - Greene's
unsuccessful race against Carl Pursell
for a congressional seat in the Second
She worked on another losing cam-
paign in April; 1979 for Jamie Kenwor-
thy, the Ann Arbor Democrats' can-
didate for mayor.
Stephanopoulos worked for the
Democratic Party as an intern in City
Hall this summer, and she serves as co-
chair for voter services for the party.
STEPHANOPOULOS SAID her
council campaign began with an infor-
mal survey of students' concerns,
which turned out to be housing and
She said she supports a rent control
proposal that "is not as high-minded as
the ones in the past." Rent control has
been defeated twice at the polls in Ann
Her rent control proposal would
establish a percentage limitfor rent in-
creases, enforced by City Hall. The
limit would be based upon inflation in-
creases for the construction industry.
