Coleman and Witchie
vie for Ward One seat
By CARRIE LORANGER
Ann Arbor's First Ward has been
dominated by Democrats since its
creation in the early 1980's. If this
voting trend continues, Democrat
Ain Marie Coleman will win a city
council seat on April 6th.
Candidates in the First Ward are
concerned with increasing crime
rates and creating affordable
Republican candidate Ronald
Witchie, a environmental technician
with Chester Engineers, and
Coleman, a campus minister at the
Guild House, differ on ways to
solve these problems.
Witchie recently told the
Chamber of Commerce that the city
needs more police officers to
combat the crime problem, but his
opponent said the city needs to

additional neighborhood watch
Witchie also suggests a
departmental reorganization so
officers are not tied up with
administrative work, which hinders
Coleman does not support hiring
additional officers, although she
sees an alarming amount of
breaking and entering in the First
"Neighborhood watch is an
appropriate way to deal with
breaking and entering," said
Coleman. "We need to watch out
for our neighbors; hiring more
police won't prevent breaking and
Police Chief William Corbett
requested 42 aditional officers before
the city council last month.
Coleman,han advocate of
affordable housing, said it is
important for people who work in
the area to be able to afford to live
here. She also said the University
should build more housing for
Coleman favors Proposal B,

for 400 low-cost housing units.
Witchie doesn't favor the
proposal. He said the city has many
housing projects planned or
underway and; if the millage passes,
it will further burden the majority
of citizens and raise the cost of
owning or renting a home.
He also criticized the lack of
planning for allocating the funds,
because he said there is no site plan
or contractor yet. The proposal calls
for the creation of a board to
Coleman countered, "The.
Republicans have steadfastly refused
to read the copy on the housing

to administer the money."

Third Ward voters in next week's
city elections will have to choose
between two city council candidates
who disagree on almost every major
Campbell, a bank manager for First
of America and a member of the
Central America Sister City Task
Force, holds many conservative
views, while two-term incumbent
Jeff Epton is a Social Democrat
who initiates many of the projects
backed by his party.
Epton has been a popular coun-
cilmember, working with members
from both parties on low-income
housing projects and a pay equity
study to determine if there is
discrimination in the city's hiring
Epton supports the proposed
housing millage, which would
increase property taxes to generate
$4 million over the next five years.
These funds would be used to
subsidize building costs and make
houses cheaper, thereby preserving
the community, Epton said.
Campbell said he doesn't
support the millage because there
are no concrete plans for the funds.
"There is no builder, no site, and no
backing," said Campbell in a recent
appearance at the Forest Hills

Epton proposed hiring more park
rangers at nearly half the salary of a
police officer. Although rangers
can't make arrests, he said having
more of them on the lookout for
crime would aid crime prevention.
Campbell favors hiring more
police, saying that police cannot be
overworked if they are to be
effective. He said the police chief
is the best qualified to assess the
needs of the police department. "Let
the experts worry about how to run
their departments," said Campbell.
