th Ward campaign focuses more on people than positions
By JAMES NASH
Daily Staff Reporter
Both candidates in the 5th Ward Ann Ar-
bor City Council race want to be judged more
on levels of experience and leadership than
political positions, and aren't afraid to take
digs at their opponent.
Neither Democrat Elizabeth Daley nor Re-
ublican Peg Eisenstodt has held elective office.
4aley is the transitional employment coordina-
tor for Trailblazers of Washtenaw, where she
helps find jobs for mentally ill people. Eisenstodt
works in commercial banking for Society Bank,
but touts her two-year term as assistant to former
Mayor Jerry Jernigan as her edge over Daley in
The two candidates are running for the
council seat vacated by
Democrat David Stead,
who is running for mayor.
Although the 5th Ward
traditionally votes Demo-
cratic, and Republicans
sometimes concede the
council seat to Demo-
cratic opponents, this year
is different. GOP donors
are pouring money into Eisenstodt
Eisenstodt's campaign, and the Republican
has been endorsed by both The Ann Arbor
News and The Michigan Daily.
In contrast to the issues-oriented cam-
paigns of the four other wards, the 5th Ward
race is tinged by personal attacks. Daley ac-
cused her opponent of misrepresenting her-
self in campaign literature by naming herself
as a member of the West Area Plan Associa-
tion. Daley asserts that Eisenstodt only began
attending planning association meetings in
June to portray herself at campaign time as
Eisenstodt, at a recent debate for City
Council candidates, panned her opponent as
indecisive. "Her focus is narrow," Eisenstodt
said of Daley. "My opponent skirts the issues
and contradicts herself when she speaks."
Daley dismissed Eisenstodt's experience
as assistant to the mayor. "I have leadership
experience," Daley said. "She has none. I
continue to see that lack of leadership at
meetings that we both attend."
disputes Daley's remarks.
"As far as leadership,
you can just take that job
as assistant to the mayor.
That's a big leadership
position," said Eisenstodt,
adding thatshe represented
z ' the Republican mayor on
the private industry coun-
Both candidates agree on the No. I issue
facing the city - finances.
"The budget will affect all issues," Daley
said, citing safety and affordable housing.
"We need to work with the budget to make
sure we have enough funds to maintain city
services," Eisenstodt said, stressing the po-
lice department as a top priority.
Daley and Eisenstodt differ on a proposed
city bailout for the Ann Arbor YMCA's low-
income housing project. The City Council
agreed in 1988 to underwrite a private loan to
the development, a loan on which the YMCA
has since defaulted. The city has been forced
to make up the difference.
Daley said she will not support the bailout
unless additional housing units are devoted to
the lowest-income residents and additional
rights are granted to tenants.
Eisenstodt said the city cannot, under any
conditions, renege on its commitment to the
YMCA. "In good conscience, I don't think we
can dump that project," she said.

term plan for where we want to be as
a city in the 21st century."
Renken envisions a partnership
between the city and the University to
eliminate redundancies and save
money. She suggests the two parties
cooperate on a museum that would
cwraw visitors to Ann Arbor's down-
town, which is suffering from the loss
of a pair of key retailers.
"We must involve the University
as a partner, not as an adversary,"
Renken and her husband Duane
have lived in Ann Arbor for 36 years.
Duane Renken and Hartwell served
together on the Ann Arbor Board of
Education, of which Hartwell became
Kathryn Renken is a former pub-
lic school teacher who was vice presi-
dent of the board of regents of
Hartwell, in stressing his moder-
ate, coalition-building approach to
government, said he worked well with
Mr. Renken on the school board.
"Katie and I are both very con-
cerned citizens. We're both involved
in the community," he said. "I worked
a lot with Duane Renken, who's a big
financing Republican. Why would I
make an enemy of you when I may
need your vote at the next meeting?"
Conceding that little separates him
from Renken on most city issues,
Hartwell said his party ties make him
a more effective voice for the 4th
Ward. "The council will remain a
Democratic majority," he asserted.
"You might want someone who
speaks with the majority voice."
Renken has elevated public safety
to the top of her agenda. In her last
campaign, she stressed fiscal issues.
Hartwell continues to run on a
fiscally conservative platform. While
many fellow Democrats won't rule
out a tax increase, Hartwell puts his
foot down. "You won't get a tax in-
crease out of me."
Renken also rejects a tax increase.
She said Ann Arbor citizens have
expected more from their city gov-
ernment than it can deliver on its
