TILLINGHAST, PRESIDENT Houston • Galveston • San Antonio • Corpus Christ i $1.00 in our tax dollar. Provide accountability, responsibility of all department heads to all members of council, not just the mayor. 2. Battered Women. N.S. 3. Affirmative Action. No question that women should get equal pay for equal work. Otherwise I need more information. 4. Rape. N.S. 5. Sexual Harassment. N.S. 6. Women's Advocate. No. 7. City Jail. No. N.S. 8. Police/Fire.

Betty Moore, an owner and operator of a nursery and primary school. She is a former HISD teacher and director of the Briargrove Civic Club. NO RESPONSE RECEIVED. Donald B. Longcope,a retired teacher who taught 43years in HISD. NO RESPONSE RECEIVED. Jim Assad, in real estate. NO RESPONSE RECEIVED. COUNCIL MEMBER-DISTRICT H District H is located in north central Houston and includes most of the Heights and all of Acres Homes, Lincoln City, Highland Heights, Hidden Valley, Greenridge and Imperial Valley. 52.8% Anglo, 27.4% Black, 19.8% Hispanic. James M. Goins, a barber. NO RESPONSE RECEIVED. Willie D. Hatchett, a retired army veteran, now a full-time student at Texas Southern University in public administration. NO RESPONSE RECEIVED. Herman Lauhoff, a state representative from District 84 since 1974 and a personnel administrator. 1. City Problem. Presently, crime against persons and property are the most serious problems in Houston: more policemen must be recruited. We have fewer policemen per capita than any other urban city in the U. S. There must be more neighborhood programs involving citizens with the police department. Neighborhood civic associations should be informed through monthly computer printouts on the number and type of crimes in their neighborhood and given advice on how to deal with that crime. 2. Battered Women. Yes. Yes, and if we do not get the public support for the needed shelters, I would be happy to help solicit private funds for this cause. 3. Affirmative Action. I will support a policy to hire women in responsible, well-paid city jobs. 4. Rape. No, I would be interested finding out the extent of the needed services and addressing those needs. 5. Sexual Harassment. This type of complaint is as serious to me as any other job complaint and should be dealt with in a professional manner.6. Women's Advocate. Probably not. That job was very controversial. I believe it served to diminish the concept of women's rights in City Hall. Women's rights can be better served through their elected representatives. 7. City Jail. Yes. The jail is overcrowded. I would like to see another jail facility at the prison farm on Mykawa Road. 8. Police/ Fire. Individuals have different strengths and weaknesses. Job duties should be assigned accordingly. 9. Child Care. No, this would stretch the city budget beyond the taxpayer's ability to pay and open the door to other costly benefits. 10. ERA. Yes, I support this equal rights amendment and believe its passage would promote equal rights uniformly across the U. S. 11. Women in your Campaign. Campaign co-manager/campaign treasurer—wife. Speaker representative—sister. 12. Additional Comments. I will welcome any comments on how to improve women's positions in City Hall. Russell Stanley, an attorney. NO RESPONSE RECEIVED. Anne Wheeler, an elementary school teacher. The Community Development Commissioner for the West End-Cottage Grove and a leader of the Taxpayers Political Action Committee. 1. City Problem. We must elect a city council which will be responsive to all citizens and neighborhoods. The tax system can be reformed to deliver better services without an actual tax increase. 2. Battered Women. Yes. Yes. 3. Affirmative Action. The situation is inequitable. Women who are already employed in city departments should be promoted or given in-service training to qualify them for promotion. We must promote the hiring of women. 4. Rape. We need more services to help rape victims at the police level as well as in the clinics. 5. Sexual Harassment. Yes. 6. Women's Advocate. The position should be independent of the Mayor and part of affirmative action programs in general. A Charter revision giving the council more authority over department heads and budgets would assist in supporting women's rights. 7. City Jail. Yes. The facilities are not adequate. The jail is overcrowded. Minorities and women are mistreated. We need trained civilian employees operating the jail to free uniformed officers. 8. Police/ Fire. There should be no differences in their duties except that searches should be conducted by persons of the same sex. 9. Child Care. There should be a city day care center. 10. ERA. It is needed and the need is obvious. 11. Women in your Campaign. The majority of the steering committee is made up of women. My campaign co-chair is Jean Cline and the office coordinator is Camille Home. 12. Additional Comments. I would oppose the Akron ordinance or any similar ordinance. I also would be a women's advocate on city council and would be particularly sensitive to women's concerns in HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH 22 OCTOBER 1979
