Gregory Scott
Democrat Gregory Scott considers
efficiency in government the major
issue of the campaign for county com-
mission seats, since an increase in
current service levels is not feasible.
Scott has had political experience as
president of the Graduate Employees
Organization at the University and as a
candidate for a University Regent post:
He suggests use of manageme'nt
strategy known as the Scanlon Plan,
which encourages employee input in
improving department operations, and
offers bonuses for money saving
suggestions.
He supports proposals A and B and
says he would like to see the board
"reach a compromise on its regional
differences between Ann Arbor and
Ypsilanti."

Richard
Walterhouse
Incumbent Richard Walterhouse
says the county must learn to live
within its budget in the face of an-
ticipatedrevenue cuts next year.
"It is imperative that the board learn
how to work together-as a group and not
as 15 or 16 different individuals trying
to get something for their districts,"
Walterhouse, who has been on the
board for 12 years, says.
Republican Walterhouse, a civil
engineer, says he plans to vote no on all
the tax proposals because "they won't
help the county or anyone else."
"Headlee was passed last year and it
is still too early to assess its effects on
the state," Walterhouse explains. "The
effects of the present proposals are
even more uncertain."

Merl Lou Murray
Incumbent Meri Lou Murray says the
major issue in the"9th District cam-
paign is dealing with reduced revenues
from state and federal government.
Murray, the first chairwoman of the
board, predicts difficulties in
establishing budget priorities and cut-
ting programs. In speaking out against
tas proposals A, C, and D, she says "we
should not tie the hands of government
by limiting its already limited funds."
The 47-year-old Democrat was in-
strumental in creating the County
Parks Commission.
Murray currently is the chairwoman
of the Physical Plant Administration
committee, and a member of the Ways
and Means, Budget, Human Resources,
Court Advisory, and City-County
Facility committees.

Gerald Jernigan
Republican Gerald Jernigan cites the
county's reduction in revenue sharing
funds as the main issue concerning the
Board of Commissioners this year.
Jernigan, 38, is an investment analyst
and says he has "plenty of experience
in city politics." The Republican is a
member of the Ann Arbor Economic
Development Corporation and
treasurer of a condominium
association.
While acknowledging his opponent
Meri Lou Murray's qualifications, Jer-
nigan says he wants to see another
Republican on the board "to get our
policies through."
Jernigan considers the Tisch tax cut
proposal disastrous, but favors Gov.
William Milliken's tax proposal over
both Tisch and the Smith/Bullard Plan.

12
Donald Duquette
University Law Prof. Donald Duquet-
te says his administrative skills will
allow him to fine tune county programs
and to piare away dead weight in the
system.
Democrat Duquette's forte, he says,
is human services. He claims to have
ideas on how to improve services
without extra dollar expenditures.
Before assuming his teaching post at
the University, Duquette worked as a
social worker, and now heads a child
advocacy law clinic.
Duquette supports propositions B, C,
and E, and opioses A and D.
Duquette, 33, says he is aware of
student problems because of his contact
with them in the classroom. "Students
will find an ear with me," he says.

David Foulke
Republican David Foulke compares
his administrative work as head of
University housing security to the
responsibilities that face a county
commissioner.
"My experience includes budget
preparation and control, program
management, and personnel super-
vision," Foulke says.
The 12th district candidate says he
has many ideas to assist in preventing
street crime in Ann Arbor. He wants to
give young people alternatives to
"hanging out" on the street corner.
On November 4, Foulke said he will
vote against proposals A, B, C, and D.
Foulke, 39, was on the mayor's ward
boundary committee in 1973, and has
been vice-chairman of the Republican
city committee for three terms.

10
Gerald Rees
Gerald Rees says one of his foci as a
board member will be alternative tran-
sportation methods. He favors a coor-
dinated, county-wide transportation
system with better public access and
the construction of more bike routes.
The Democrat is chairman of the
Non-motorized Transportation Com-
mittee of the Michigan Department of
Transportation, a member of the
steering committee for the Ann Arbor
Bike League, and part of the SEMCOG
Transportation Advisory Commission.
Ross, 56, favors the Smith-Bullard
tax plan, calls the Tisch proposal "a
disaster," opposes Proposal C, and
favors Proposal B.

Thomas Burnham
Because he sees the board as a
budget-establishing body, incumbent
Republican Thomas Burnham says his
finance background qualifies him for
the position.
Burnham, 33, is a lawyer and has
served as the executive commissioner
of the Southeast Michigan Council of
Governments.
Burnham says he opposes Proposal D
and sympathizes with protests against
rising taxes, but blames the state
legislature for not keeping taxes under
control.
The GOP candidate emphasizes the
community service aspect of his
position on the board and says he does
not want to make a career of the board
post.

13
Raymond Shoultz
Economic efficiency is one of
Democrat Raymond Shoultz' main
priorities in his bid to regain the 13th
district county commissioner's seat,
which he held for six years before he
was defeated in the last election.
Some of Shoultz' past accomplish-
ments are a low cost animal spay and
neuter clinic in Ann Arbor, and bus ser-
vice connecting Ann Arbor and Yp-
silanti.
Shoultz supports ballot proposals A,
B, C, and E, and is against Proposal D.
Shoultz, 49, is a member of the
Democratic party in the second ward.
He also worked on the Stacy
Stepanopoulos city council campaign..

Wendell Allen -
Incumbent Wendell Allen says he has
taken steps to compel private foun-
dations to make up deficits caused by
government cutbacks of social ser-
vices.
Allen, 33, has been working on a
program that would allow CETA em-
ployees, now limited to public service
jobs, to work within the private sector.
He says that if a shortage in gover-
nment funds occurs, CETA employees
are the first to lose their jobs. Allen
says if his proposal is adopted, CETA
employees would have more job
security.
Allen is currently employed by the
University Office of Affirmative Action
and has served on the Ann Arbor City
Council.

Gerald Faye

DECISIONS '80
Patricia Hagen
Editor

Democrat Gerald Faye says he "in-
tends to use the office as a pulpit to ad-
vocate things that are important."
The candidate, who is running unop-
posed, feels the job of county com-
missioner is collecting taxes and
allocating funds, but says it is
somewhat limited in power.
The Oakland Community College
political science professor, 50 is for
B, C, and E, and is against Proposal D.
has been active in local politics, serving
on advisory groups to politicians and
campaigning for candidates in the
Second Ward. He has contacted studen-
ts through door-to-door visits.

Catherine McClary
Democrat Catherine McClary is run-
ning unopposed for the 15th district
county commission seat. A veteran of
three terms on the board, McClary says
she still goes door-to-door in her district
to keep in touch with her constituency.
McClary says she is against all three
tax proposals. She favors proposal B,
because she feels that if -someone has
attained the age of majority he or she
should be able to drink.
McClary, 28, has worked for the
Women's Crisis Center as a rape coun-
selor. She lobbies for health issues for
the National Health. Network and
teaches women's health care at
Washtenaw Community College.
