state income tax and with what some
believe to be Milliken's lack of
imagination in dealing with the state's
economic woes.
Brickley therefore is quick to point
out what he says are the differences
between himself and the current gover-
nor. He pushes hard for the
deregulation of small business and 'the
elimination of the state's workers com-
pensation laws and single-business tax,'
which taxes a company's costs rather
than profits. And, in a bigger surprise,
Brickley has argued that the state
should not support abortions for low-
income women, a move that defies
Milliken's defense of these funds.
L. Brooks Patterson (R)
Patterson has built a controversial
reputation as the Oakland County
Prosecuter and a hard-nosed Law and
Order advocate. In that role, he has
been a dogged proponent of the death
penalty and a fierce opponent of plea
bargaining in criminal cases.
But, for purposes of the gubernatorial
campaign, Patterson says he wants to
move away from the law and order
issues and emphasize, like everyone
else, the state's economic problems.
And, he has developed a point-by-point
plan for turning the economy around.
At the hub of the plan is the
elimination , of business
regulations-such as the single-
business tax-which he says are
making it impossible for Michigan in-
dustries to compete with business from
other Midwestern states.
'Going into the election, Patterson will
have the hometown advantage in
Oakland County, which is the state's
host populous county.
Richard Headlee, (R)
Arguing that "government is clearly
out of control,",Headlee insists the only
Vay to set Michigan back on the path
toward prosperity is to' drastically cut
back state services whie slashing
taxes. If elected, he says he would cut
back the number of state employees
and reduce the salaries they are paid,
turning the services they now perform
ever to the private sector.
Milliken's proposal to raise taxes was
just the issue Headlee was looking for in
the campaign. He has repeatedly
lashed out at the plan. "I don't think
that revenues are the problem in this
state, I think expenditures are. I don't
think you can reward mismanagement
with revenues," he said at a recent
campaign stop at Ypsilanti's Eastern
Michigari University.
In spite of his plan to cut back gover-
ent expenditures, Hadlee, a long-
time campaigner or Iowert taxes,
defends the state's raditionally strong
support of higher education. "The only
way we stayed in front (of the nation) is
due to the great investments we have
a made to education," he said last month.
Jack Welborn (R)
This Kalamazoo Republican has a lot
of experience in Lansing, working both
as a state representative and a state
senator since his first victory in state
politics in 1972. Welborn, like many of
the other- candidates, have come out
swinging on the issue of- Milliken's
proposed tax hike.
But, despite his record in Lansing and
his grassroots campaign experience,
Welborn has found it difficult to

Fitzgerald is a virtual old-timer in
state politics. A 10-year veteran of the
state legislature, Fitzgerald made an
unsuccessful bid for the executive man-
sion in 1978.
But, while Fitzgerald enjoys fair
name recognition among Michigan
voters, many observers say he has lost
the support of the state's Democratic
Party. Having alienated the party
leaders, who have fallen squarely
behind Congressman Jim Blanchard,
Fitzgerald will be running the race on
his own, without help from his party,
they say.
Fitzgerald has come up with a 10-
point plan for revitalizing the state's
economy, which he claims will reduce
the cost of operating a business in the
state, develop new markets for
Michigan products, and reduce the cost
of running the state government. To
make sure the government stays within
its budget; his plan calls for a strict
limit on how much taxes could be
James Blanchard (D)
Blanchard, who is thought to be the
leading Democratic candidate, is riding
the wave against the Milliken ad-
ministration. In a recent interview,
Blanchard accused Milliken of "living
in a dream world," and said the ad-
ministration's unorthodox accounting
practices need thorough review. He
suggests an independent audit of the
state's financial operations as the only
way to shore up its alleged inefficien-
To solve the problems of business in
the state, Blanchard says he would call
on all leaders in industry, government,
and labor to come up jointly with a
cooperative plan for making business
run more smoothly and cutting costs.

Edward Pierce (D)
Pierce, who is now Ann Arbor's state
senator, is considered by most obser-
vers to be a long-shot at best in the
gubernatorial race. He says he wants to
establish a "thoughtful, practical, and
humane" state government, the only
problem is that not many voters know
quite what he means by that.
Pierce has suffered from the ailment
common to many of the candidates
running: It is very hard to attract at-
tention in a campaign filled with more
experienced and more influential can-
didates. As a result, his has been mostly
a quiet campaign.
The notable exception to this quiet
has been his unique-and somewhat
brave-advocacy of a tax hike as a
possible way of balancing the state's
budget. While almost all the other can-
didates have based their campaigns on
attacking Milliken's proposal or
disassociating themselves from it,
Pierce has stood out by suggesting that
maybe it's not such a bad idea. He
acknowledges that this position
ultimately may harm his efforts to win
the Democratic nomination in August,
but he adds, "the bottomline is that you
have to do what is responsible."
Robert Tisch (D)
If ever there were a eandidate in con-
trast to Pierce, it is Tisch, the con-
troversial tax-cutcrusaderand drain
commissioner for rural Shiawassee
County. Tisch has based his cam-
paign-asxwould be expected-on the
issue of taxes, particularly what he
considers to be the injustice of
Milliken's most recent proposal.
At the same time, however, he is

Zolton Ferency (D)
This is the' determined Ferency's
fourth attempt to win the governor's
race in Michigan. Ferency has simply
refused to give up since his first try at
the office in 1966, despite his deep split
with the Democratic party establish-
This year, he is basing his campaign
on nine major issues.. Among these
issues are women's rights, the
establishment of a state-owned bank,
and a guarantee of the right to strike to
state workers.
John Saffron (D)
Saffron, a 72-year-old Lapeer County
attorney,quickly points out that he has
lived through three major wars and
that he has no intention of seeing
another. Therefore, he says he would
devote much of his energies to keeping
Michigan from contributing to another
U.S. military conflict.
Saffron said the solution to
Michigan's economic problems is also
the best way to keep it out of war: The
conversion of the state to a peacetime
economy. He said Michigan still has not
changed back from the wartime,
military-based economy it developed
during World War II.
The efforts recently by some gover-
nment and industrial leaders to attract
more defense department contracts to
the state will only fuel this economy
while promoting militarism, he said.
He added that as governor, he would try
to keep the defense department out of
Michigan as much as possible.

The first piece was very effective,
with a melody built on a simple horn
phrase in a blues progression that gave
way from a funk beat to a cruising up-
tempo tenor sax solo. This was one case
where the soloist seemed to be simply
sustaining a texture as all the other
players fit in-one ultimately became
aware of Jackson's drumming as the
foous of the entire section. Reid
followed with a similar extended solo,
ending with guitar synthesizers
doubling his lines in a different key.
The variety of sounds the band
achieved both through arranging and
electronics was very impressive, as
was the imagination and wit evident in
the charts and the generally infectious,
danceable beats. Jackson has assem-
bled a group of musicians that are
going to make a deep impression' on
