Transcript Don Hogan, an insurance firm executive. 1. City Problem. The big issue is lack of effective city management, which causes neglect of the services that the city is supposed to provide. We need to force the city to make the most efficient use of the current tax dollars. 2. Battered Women. Yes. Yes, and more support should be encouraged by private groups, with more public education on the subject. 3. Affirmative Action. Yes, the situation is inequitable. I would encourage active recruitment of qualified women for higher positions. We need to get the best qualified people available regardless of sex. 4. Rape. The city is woefully inadequate in handling this problem. More services are needed, as is more public awareness of the seriousness and gravity of this situation. 5. Sexual Harassment. Yes, I will take complaints of this nature seriously, and will investigate all legitimate complaints, and will urge the mayor to take action. 6. Women's Advocate. No, I feel there are operating departments that should be open to women-positions of actual influence-not just for show or political reasons. 7. City Jail. No. No, I have not visited the facilities yet, but based upon the reports I have received, I doubt that facilities are adequate, and I feel they should be improved. 8. Police/Fire. They all should perform the same duties. 9. Child Care. I doubt that the present budget will allow for this benefit. I do feel that this benefit would be of great value to present and potential employees of the city. The whole subject of on-premises child care should be explored by all employers, public and private. 10. ERA. No. We cannot eliminate discrimination by passing more laws. Our society is too legalistic already. I believe in equal opportunity for all persons regardless of race, religion, or sex. 11. Women in your Campaign. The major position of campaign coordinator/manager is held by Pat Mclntyre and Dorothy Gaige is in charge of public relations, promotional and press activities. Mary Jane Hopkins is handling all radio advertising. Actually, you do not have room on this questionnaire for me to list all the women and their various positions in my campaign. 12. Additional Comments. I feel the talents, energy, enthusiasm, intellect, innovation, and good taste of women have not been utilized enough in our society, and I strongly feel they should be! Mike Kiszkiel, owner of a construction and trucking business. RESPONSE RECEIVED POST-DEADLINE Christin Hartung, former executive assistant to Harris County Judge Jon Lindsay and Republican Party worker. NO RESPONSE RECEIVED. Jimmy Dunne, a math teacher in HISD and former Harris County coordinator for Common Cause. 1. City Problem. Traffic congestion is our most important problem. The MTA needs more efficient management to see that our tax dollars are wisely spent. We do not need any additional taxes. I believe that I can contribute to more economical use of our taxes. 2. Battered Women. Yes. Yes. I believe that this would be a worthwhile project for the City as well as Harris County. I believe that the City could share in the operations by subsidizing the shelters by paying approximately 50% of all costs. The County, Corporations, and various foundations could kick in the remaining 50%. 3. Affirmative Action. Yes this situation is inequitable. If elected I would bring public pressure to bear on the Mayor and department heads to make the hiring of females on a par with men. 4. Rape. We need the necessary medical, psychological and legal help necessary to assist these victimized women. We do not want to create a large bureaucracy but we do need to provide adequate services. 5. Sexual Harassment. Yes, I will take all such complaints seriously. An accumulation of complaints against any one supervisor or a verified serious harassment will call for dismissal, legal action, or whatever the situation warrants. 6. Women's Advocate. No, but I would support a position of ombudsman to be advocate for all citizens faced with a difficult bureaucracy that may not be treating our citizens fairly. 7. City Jail. No. I have visited the Texas Department of Corrections at Huntsville. Most prisons are inadequate and should be improved so that the prisoners are treated humanely. Job training is probably the most important service as most prisoners are uneducated and unable to hold a good paying job. 8. Police/Fire. I believe that women can hold almost all of the jobs that men can. Women and all other minorities should be hired without discrimination. 9. Child Care. Child care facilities should be encouraged and upgraded in all areas of the city. A self-sustaining child care facility would be welcome by all who need them regardless of who they work for. 10. ERA. Yes it is needed. To show the world and especially America's women that our nation stands for equal rights for everyone. I think that the opposition is misguided and misinformed about the possible results. 11. Women in your Campaign. The same as men. All volunteers regardless of gender are welcome to participate. 12. Additional Comments. I'm glad that women are asserting themselves today to gain equal treatment by laws, employers, and in every way possible. Most Americans have never believed that women were victims of discrimination but today that fact of unfair treatment has been publicized and is being acted on. I'm with you all the way! Kathryn Ross, a homemaker and graduate of Houston Baptist University. She ran against Councilman Mann in 1977 and placed second in a field of five candidates. 1. City Problem. Lack of mobility. Use vans instead of buses for neighborhood routes. Cost would be 10% of buses. Authorize additional taxi cabs. Re-design some streets and intersections to improve traffic flow. Better engineering of signals. Get big trucks off freeways during peak hours. Do road repairs at night. 2. Battered Women. Yes. 3. Affirmative Action. Introduce ordinance to require equal pay for equal work. Work to see that women in departments are given opportunity to advance, instead of hiring new men from outside. 4. Rape. More services are needed. 5. Sexual Harassment. Yes. 6. Women's Advocate. Yes, to coordinate all matters relating to women's special problems. 7. City Jail. Yes. Not adequate-inhumane. Needs completely rebuilding. 8. Police/Fire. All officers and personnel should be allowed to perform whatever duties they are able to. 9. Child Care. All businesses should provide this care. It's an investment in crime prevention, education and future of society. 10. ERA. Yes. I consider it to be a formal recognition of the equality of all citizens and hopefully will give legal recognition. 11. Women in your Campaign. Almost all. Hub Ratliff, an investor. 1. City Problem.
