Washtenaw County was strong, and
that should help in November.
Geake said he was pleased that he

"Unlike many other races, this cam-

campaigning," Geake said. "It was a
positive campaign on the issues."
OneofthefeaturedissuesofGeake's
campaign has been the elimination of

Now Geake's campaign staff will
focus its attention on the November

great that we can focus on philosophies
and that therewon't be themudslinging

added.
Schroer could not be reached for
comment at press tne.
Ouimet's campaign has centered
around an education reform package.
His plan would equalize school fund-
ing by disentangling school budgets
from property tax rates.
Schroer has said she also wants to
equalize funding for public schools.
"I feel very strongly that the univer-

experience, I know that there is a better
way which we can get more effective
and efficient responses to the needs of
theconstituents within theexistingbud-
get," Bertram said.
Rivers said her focus on certain
issues will not change now that the
campaign is entering a different stage.
"We're going to continue to focus
on things we did this time, the issues
people raised with me such as choice,
school funding, and restoration of the
human services budget," Rivers said.
"This crew knows only one strategy
- all out'. We have tried to hit every-
one through mail... and to knock on as
many doors as we can," she added.

Both candidates called higher edu-
cation funding a top priority and said
they would be spending time at the
University campaigning this fall and
talking to students.
Bertram - calling higher educa-
tion the state's necessary first priority
said, "If we do not provide for edu-

cation it will have a boomerang effect.
People will not get jobs and leave the
state ... We need to make it an absolute
priority."
"We will be spending a lot of time
on campus. I don'tbelieve thatstudents
are uninterested," Bertram said.
"Education in general is a high pri-
ority. I would always look to fund edu-
cation and make sure that it is as acces-
sibleaspossible,"Riverssaid.Sheadded
that, when visiting the University cam-
pus, she hopes to allow students to
define some of the issues she will focus
on during the campaign.
Both candidates said they are hope-
ful about their chances for elections in
November.
"It's going to be a tough race. Once
wegetissuesout, thereshouldbeaclear
choice between candidates," Bertram
said. "Ciace I get out there and present
my stance on issues, this should dem-
onstrate my ability to get things done.
We have an excellent chance of pre-
vailing in November."
Rivers said she is also optimistic
about her chances for election in No-
vember and emphasizedshe would like
to work with other Democratic candi-
dates during the fall election.
