Third in a five-part series
Members of the Student Alliance for Better
Representation (SABRE) say they are independent
thinkers. But they also say they will remain a
cohesive group, even after the Michigan Student
Assembly elections have come and gone.
SABRE presidential candidate Jerry Kowalski ad-
dressed the problem of increasing MSA influence in
the University community: "The only way we can
give credence to what MSA does is increase student
Increasing student participation can be achieved
by getting student leaders together, Kowalski said.
Such a coalition is a popular campaign proposal this
year. Kowalski added that both he and vice-

presidential candidate Tim Lee have many "contac-
ts" in the Greek system, which he said would also
help to increase participation.
BUT SABRE Party Chairman Brad Canale added
that Greeks are not the only student group represen-
ted by the party. "We have a good cross-section of
people running," he said.
Lee said he would also strive to get a student ap-
pointed to either the University's Board of Regents or
the executive committee. About the Regents he ad-
ded, "How can people making decisions about
students keep in tune if, they don't have a student
helping them, guiding them?"
Agreeing with a stance taken by several other can-
didates, Lee said he would try to bring a higher
degree of coordination to MSA as vice-president.
LEE SAID ONE area where coordination could

make a big difference is MSA's role in increasing
minority enrollment. "That's why that area has gone
defunct, there's no coordination," he said.
Stressing that SABRE focuses on student issues,
Lee said, "For the first time in student election
history, the issues are student issues. And that's
thanks to SABRE."
CANALE SAID SABRE traditionally has not been
deeply involved in issues that he said have little, if
any direct impact on students. He said issues like
tenure and divestment should be mainly the respon-
sibility of University administrators.
MSA should take a firm initiative and fund many
more student-oriented projects next year, most
SABRE candidates agree. Kowalski said this past
year MSA has rebuilt its internal workings, and next
year can focus on external projects.


She idor
While City Council candidates are ac-
tively soliciting votes in most corners of
Ann Arbor, things are comparatively
quiet - at least politically - in the
Third Ward.
Since he is running unopposed for a
seat on council, Republican incumbent
Cliff Sheldon's campaign is about as,
low key as is possible - Sheldon is on
vacation and will not return to Ann Art-
bor until the day of the election.
Instead of the door-to-door cam-
paigning that's common in the other
wards, Sheldon's "campaign" strategy
is only to mail statements urging

Democrats in the Third Ward is
probably not causing Sheldon many
sleepless nights.
ACCORDING TO Sheldon, his
relationship with the other council
members is a good one. "Ninety per
cent of the time, we're all out for the
same thing," he said. Sheldon added
that at election time, there is obviously
some antagonism between the
Democrats and Republicans, but he
said the council is "mostly a pretty
good team that works together.
Sheldon said that besides taxes,
growth and development is the biggest
issue in the ward right now.
