First-year student announces City
Council candidacy for upcoming race

.By Meg Exley
I~iyS*iT Repnc
In the comipetituv 'aod of oliticus
it's never too early to start
This is the case for ISA first-year
student Michael Enright who
recently became the first candidate
to announce his intention oT running
for a spot on the Ann Arbor City
Council.
Enright intends to run for- a scat in
the city' 4th Ward as a member of the
Libertarian Party.
NOriginally from Clinton Township in
Maccmb County and a graduate of
LUAnse Creuse High School, Enright
said he has aiwavs been interested in
politics.
I've followed local politicians for
years," he said. " 1 hope that I will
now be able to participate- with
them."
Enright said tl h;tle Kcnne intense-
ly involved ih the mal I ibertarian
Party last yc<. He said he expects to

lames I ludler, Aice chir of the
Ashtenaw Coun I iberianan Party.

also said he expects Enright to gain the
nomination.
"I think his chances are pretty good
at this point," Hudler said. "It's proba-
bly a long shot that he'll actually win
the seat, but I think he'll definitely
affect the election."
Enright said he has given much con-
sideration to running for city council.
The issue that he said caused him to
finalize his decision was his opposition
to the potential introduction of a city-
wide income tax,
"I think that an income tax would
hurt the city," Enright said. "An
additional tax would discourage
good workers from coming into the
city and become an extra incentive
for people to look for jobs else-
where."
Enright said having a University stu-
dent on city council would be very ben-
eficial to students,
"The University is a big part of the
Ann Arbor community and the stu-
dents have many concerns," he said.
"I think that it is important to have
someone who would be able to
address these problems to the city

government directly. I think as a city
council member, I would be able to
do so."
Ann Arbor's 4th Ward includes
South Quad and the t niversity area in
the vicinity of Madison and Packard
Streets.
Currently, the 4th Ward is repre-
sented by Republican Patrick Putnam
and Democratic Stephen Hartwell .
Hartwell, however, is not up for re-
election this year, leaving only one
seat open for contention.
Putnam is serving out his first term
on council and hasn't decided if lie will
run for re-election. He is expected to
announce his decision by the end of the
month.
Enright said he is confident that lie
has as good a chance as any
Libertarian to break into the 4th Ward.
even though it has only been repre-
sented by Democrats and Republicans
in the past.
"Though there arent a lot of
University libertarians. our numbers
are growing lie said. "Actually, the
party's influence on the entire commu-
nity is growing as a whole."

H udler said Enright's main impact
on the election will be to be to split the
votes between Democrats and
Republicans. He also said he thinks
the community will take Enright's cani-
didacy seriously.
"The Libertarian Party has been the
only party to run student candidates in
the past 20 years, for we think it is
very important to have student opin-
ions heard," Hudler said. "For this rea-
son, I think Mike will gain a lot of
votes"
Though he declared his candidacy
two weeks ago, Enright said that he
hasn't heard much reaction yet from
either students or city council.
"Some students have offered their
support, but I think it's still so early
that most people don't even know I'm
running," Enright said. "My main rea-
son for announcing my intentions so
early was due to the fact that school
was ending for the summer. I wanted
to 4get the word out before everyone
left.~
lie said he plans to begin cam-
paigning once classes resume in the
fall.

PASSOVER
Continued from Page 1
worldwide celebrate their treedoim from
Egyptian slavery and reaffirm their
Jewish national identity. The sedar.
meaning "order" is the maid event of the
Passover holiday. The Hlebrew name sig-
nifies the way the first and second meal
is given in a special order.
Rushovich said Jewish siudents have
the added stress of going to scdars and
having to study for their fitals the next
day.
"Students spend a og 1 time at
sedars, and the next day t hey have to get
up and take an exam." Ruhovich said.
LSA sophomore Aaron Starr said lie
is looking forward to going home for
the holiday.
"It will be a nice holiday. spending

time with my family." Starr said. "I will
keep Passover. The dorms make it fairly
easy to.
In addition to the time restraints,
Jewish students celebrating the holiday
are restricted from eating foods made
with yeast.
Starr said the conflict between the
last day of classes and the first day of
Passover is an unavoidable problen.
"Passover happens when it happens,
and classes end when classes end," Starr
said. "The problem is the University
can't accommodate everyone."'
Starr said Hillel offers many options
to help make observing Passover more
convenient.
"'Hillel offers rany available options
for students. like sedars." Starr said.
"Passover is a good chance for everyone
to appreciate normal. every day food"

FIRE
Continued from Page 1
"Shea wasn't even here ... at the
party," Silver said.
H e noted the number of people who
have come to see the room since the
fire. "We were going to start giving
tours for a dollar." Silver said.
"People have been coming up here all
day."
LSA first-year student Dave
Jackson, who also lives near Frazier
and Shea, said he slept during the
alleged party.
"It couldn't have been that much of
a party. I slept through the whole
thing. I was asleep by 11:30 and I
never woke up," Jackson said. "There
were quite a few people up here, but
it was a pretty standard Saturday

night."
Jackson said Frazier and Shea
should not be singled out from other
students just because they are foot-
ball players.
Both Silver and Jackson pointed out
that Shea and Frazier's room is about 20
feet from the resident adviser's door
and no warning was given to them for
noise.
Levy said the investigation of the
incident will probably last a week.
"It depends on the past history and
what the investigation finds in terms of
how and who brought the keg in," Levy
said. "They could receive anything
from a warning to having their lease
terminated."

Nicholas . Cotsonika contributed to
this report.
"It means you have to be looking for
any and every sport that women might
be interested in playing and then fund
it," said lawyer Maureen Mahoney, wh
represented Brown in the high court
appeal. "And whenever you have com-
pelled affirmative action, you have a
risk of a backlash. What you really want
is men and women athletes sharing the
joy of sports together."
