Jeanette Middleton, who chose not
to seek reelection this year, is the
} current city councilmember for the
district. The candidates must face the
same divisive issue as other council
candidates - the controversial rent
control debate, which appears as a
If passed, rent control would tie
rent hikes to inflation, utility costs
and tax increases.
Brater, the Democratic Caucus li-
aison to the city's Democratic Party,
! supports rent control as long as the
city's housing code is vigorously
enforced, in order to retain the qual-
ity of units which some fear will
decline under the ordinance.
BUT CAMPBELL, who man-
ages the First of America Bank
branch on Liberty Street, responded
that "those who decide to live here
have to realize that a large chunk of
their disposable income will go to-
Last year, Campbell ran unsuc-
cessfully against Council member
Jeff Epton, (D-Third Ward) whose
two-year term ends next year. De-
spite low turnout among students in
Ann Arbor elections - which has
held true even in previous years,
when student-backed propositions
appeared on the ballot - the candi-
dates agree that students can have a
decisive impact in what may be a

to attract a big chunk of the student
vote. "The students who are going to
vote on April 4 have always voted
predominantly Democratic," Camp-
bell, adding that "they identify Re-
publicans with Reagan and
But Brater actively seeks student
support. She hopes to harness the
attention and support of students in
East Quad, where student voter
turnouts are highest, because many
backed Epton last year.
"STUDENTS are a very vital
part of our coalition," Brater said.
"We really want students to be in-
volved in the city electoral process."
Both candidates support a city
role to provide low-income housing
in Ann Arbor.
Campbell criticizes the council
for rejecting the Liberty Street sin-
gle-room-occupancy project last fall.
He commends Mayor Gerald Jerni-
gan's and Council member Larry
Hunter's (D-First Ward) proposal to
double the rooms available at the

Hirshorn is basing his reelection
on a host of issues, including a fo-
cus on development and a knowledge
of how the city works culled from
both his council experience and aca-
Sheldon said her views more
closely reflect those of her neighbors
than Hirshorn's. She described Hir-
shorn's differences with other
Democratic caucus members on
some issues - like the minimum-
wage housing facility which council
rejected last year - as attempts to
make himself appear less like a
Democrat. In reality, Sheldon says,
Hirshorn supported the Democrats
63 out of 68 times.
Hirshorn agrees that he normally
supports his fellow Democrats. Hir-
shorn counters that Sheldon is in
fact mimicking his slate: "If you
look at her fliers, she's running on
my record," he says.
REGARDLESS of who's imi-
tating whom, the candidates undeni-
ably agree on more issues than do
rivals in other wards.
Unlike many council Republi-
cans, Sheldon believes developers
should be willing to put up with the
sometimes onerous Planning Com-
mission process in order to get a
Hirshorn says he has sought to
ensure that new buildings are com-
patible with their surroundings and
reflect the needs of pedestrians.
The candidates disagree about
council's relationship to the police
department. Specifically, a resolu-
tion passed two months - and
introduced by Hirshorn - requiring
the police to provide council with
monthly reports on crime in the
HIRSHORN says the informa-
tion provided by these reports will
allow council to evaluate the de-
partment's effectiveness. But Shel-
don calls them "a very expensive use
of police time."
Hirshorn cited his success in
working with the off-campus crime
commission, a body made up of

for low-income housing, Brater said.
She was referring to neighbors' sen-
timent against the proposed single-

Sheldon recommends that council
work more closely with the police
department to reduce crime,
"Hirshorn has not been supportive of
the police," Sheldon said.
