Ads rip Lucas for Wayne county deficit
Lansing (AP) - The Michigan
Democratic Party is sponsoring television
advertisement blaming Republican
gubernatorial nominee William Lucas for
a Wayne County deficit approaching $70
The 30-second ads, which were scheduled
to begin across the state last night, also
praise Democratic Gov. James Blanchard.
BOTH MEN faced massive deficits
when they took office in 1982, the ads say.
Four years later, the ads say, "Governor
Blanchard paid off the debt. Taxes rolled
back. Wall Street says the comeback is
But Wayne County faces "a deficit
approaching $70 million. Mounting unpaid
bills. The threat of payless paydays," the ads
say. "Wall Street says it will be several
years before county finances could be
characterized as sound."
LUCAS CALLED the spots part of a
"Blanchard harassment effort floated
around Michigan for four months."
"There will not be payless paydays. The
budget is tight but we can avoid payless
paydays without raising taxes the way he
(Blanchard) did," Lucas said.
Several Wayne County commissioners
said payless paydays can be avoided, but
state Democratic Chair Rick Wiener said
he stands by the ads.
"It is an effort to focus attention on what I
believe is the most significant difference
between the two - how they have managed
their jobs over the last four years," said
Wiener. He refused to say how much the
ads cost but said they would run for at least a
Spokespeople for Lucas said during the
summer that the county's deficit could reach
nearly $70 million without corrective
action. At the time, Lucas announced a
hiring freeze and an overtime moratorium
to counter the losses.
Lucas, who's trying to become the
nation's first elected black governor,
estimates the county deficit will still be $35
million. However, county commissioners
have disputed the figure and say the county
lacks a firm estimate for the deficit.
Lucas has blamed the state for a projected
$20 million overrun in providing medical
care to the county's poor.
Lucas filed suit in Ingham County
Circuit Court in August seeking $50 million
from Blanchard and the state, contending
that state health and welfare policies
contributed to the overruns in the county

ONE PARTICIPANT in the
meeting with Shultz, Sen. Charles
Grassley, (R-Iowa), told reporters
no votes were changed.
Grassley said Shultz told a
group of nine or 10 Republican
senators "that if the Senate
overrides the veto bn South Africa
it would weaken the President's
bargaining position and his
foreign policy authority."
But Grassley said he did not

REAGAN, battered by Mon-
day's 313-83 House vote to
override his veto of sanctions
legislation, is facing heavy odds
as he battles to convince the
Republican-controlled Senate to
sustain his position in a vote
Sen. Robert Dole, the majority
leader, in whose office the session
was held, said he "asked my
colleagues to hold their fire and
give the president an opportunity
to visit with them. I believe the
veto ought to be sustained."
He said Shultz told senators
that "it wouldn't be of any help to
the president when he sits down
with Mr. Gorbachev to have been
clobbered by the Congress on a
foreign policy issue."
EARLIER, Dole urged senators
in a speech on the floor to give
special consideration to foreign
policy and defense issues over the
next several days.
"When President Reagan sits
down across the table from
Gorbachev- when the two look
each other in the eye- I want
Gorbachev to see a president who
has the clear and strong support of
the Congress and the people, and
who has the unquestioned
mandate to speak for all of us on
foreign policy issues."
