Elizabeth Schwartz is attacking the
same record that incumbent
Republican William Delhey is proudly
defending in the race for prosecuting
attorney.
Democrat Schwartz said she decided
to challchge Delhey when she "became
familiar with his record." She said the
state appellate courts have chastized
the county prosecutor's office on
several occasions. For example, she
said, "In a 1978 case involving a
breaking and entering conviction, the
court .actually threatened personal

disciplinary action if the prosecutor's
misconduct continued."
But Delhey, who has held the post
since 1964, is proud of the conviction
record compiled by his office. He said
his staff prosecutes more than 1,000
cases a year with a 91 percent convic-
tion rate.
THE PROSECUTOR'S office is in-
volved with preventing crime also,
Delhey explained. The investigation of
specific crimes, such as bicycle theft
and burglaries, will make thieves
"think tw ice" before committing them,
he added.

The prosecutor said crimes against
people, forcible crimes such as rape
and assault, crimes against personal
property, armed robbery, and nar-
cotics are the crimes that are the most
important to prosecute.
Schwartz said she would focus on
convicting "serious, assaultive,
dangerous criminals." Consumer fraud
cases would also be given high priority
if she is elected, she said.
Delhey graduated from the Univer-
sity in 1947 and the University of Detroit
Law School in 1954. He served as an

Drain
Commissioner
Margaret Yorks and James Murray
are squaring off for the: seat of
Washtenaw County Drain Com-
missioner.
Republican Yorks, 45, said she
decided to run for the position because
"not enough attention was paid to the
amount of money the office (controls)."
The accounting process, she claimed, is
not well-run.
Yorks has worked for Washtenaw
County for twenty years in the Health
and Public Works Departments.
Her opponent, 34-year-old Murray, is
a former energy co-ordinator for
Washtenaw County. Murray, a
Democrat, said he believes the office
should be concerned with both en-
vironmental problems and possible
severe budget cutbacks.
"The drain commissioner's task will
be to protect the quality of the county's
physical environment under tight
budget restrictions which may become
worse in the future," Murray said.
While working with the Wayne Coun-
ty Health Department, Murray said he
dealt with erosion control, solid waste
management, and on-site sewage
disposal.

Clerk
Democrat Rose Marie Melton,
assistant manager of the West Bank
Holiday Inn, is challenging Republican
incumbent Robert Harrison for the post
of Washtenaw County Clerk.
Melton, 25, advocates the use of com-
puters, and personnel cutbacks,
because she said she does not believe
the county clerk needs a 32-person staff.
Melton said she would like to hold
"public forums" so the public will have
a voice in county affairs. "This would
give the clerk's office a better under-
standing of the public's needs," she
said.
Harrison, 52, said his major goal is
"to keep the office in innovative
change, in order to. deal with the
demands of the public." The only major
problem in his office is space, he said.
He added that he has suggested altering
the record-keeping system so-that part
will be on microfilm and part will be
computerized.

Register
-of Deeds
Register of Deeds, Republican
Patricia Hardy, is being challenged by
Democrat Angie Jones Veigel.
Hardy, 58, has served as the Register
of Deeds for 26 years. She has called for
changes in equipment and personnel,
and said some budget cuts are forth-
coming. But Hardy admits that finding
areas to cut spending will be difficult
since much of the office work is routine."
Veigel, 52, said her main goal in office
would be to "initiate a computerized
index service (because) it's time to up-
date the register of deeds." She added
that she ,has heard various realtors
complain about the lack of efficiency in
the office.
A 16-year veteran in the Washtenaw
County government, Veigel has served
as both Deputy County Clerk and
Probate Clerk. For the past ten years,
she has operated a public stenography
business.

Democrat Lushin Salyer is trying to
unseat Republican Tom Minick, the in-
cumbent Washtenaw County Sheriff.
Salyer said he is seeking the sheriff
position because he is "firmly convin-
ced that the present sheriff's depar-
tment is not operated with a view to ob-
taining the maximum efficient use of
tax dollars."
Minick said he is running for a second
term because his department has per-
formed well and he would like to con-
tinue as sheriff. He acknowledged that
crimes committed in Washtenaw Coun-
ty have increased this year, but blamed
much of the increase on the economy.
"The economy is kicking the hell out
