Transcript the City of Houston. Dale Gorczynski, director of the Harris County Youth Program and a Heights Community Development Commissioner. 1. City Problem, (a) Police protection for our community along with police responsibility to the community, (b) Hire and train additional police who can enforce the law without breaking it or abusing their authority, (c) Not necessarily additional tax dollars, but certainly additional expenditure for the police department. 2. Battered Women. Yes. On a cost-sharing basis with private, state, or federal funding. 3. Affirmative Action. Assure that every qualified person, male or female, of whatever ethnicity is given an equal opportunity for employment by the city at every level. 4. Rape. I doubt the city is adequately handling this task, as it is not handling any other well. 5. Sexual Harassment. Yes. 6. Women's Advocate. Yes, power to assure that complaints of women living and/or working in the city are adequately addressed. 7. City Jail. No. 8. Police/Fire. No. 9. Child Care. No, this is generally not an employer's responsibility and I sincerely do not think citizens should be taxed to pay for such a private service. 10. ERA. Yes. 11. Women in your Campaign. We don't have any formal positions, but of the four persons constituting my campaign staff, three are female. 12. Additional Comments. Probably, but if I hope to win the election, I've got to go knock on some doors. COUNCIL MEMBER-DISTRICT I District I is sandwiched between Districts B and E in the eastern to southeastern section of Houston and includes Moody Park, Denver Harbor, Central Park, Magnolia Park, Harrisburg and Pecan Park. 63.3% Hispanic, 27.2% Anglo, 9.5% Black. Mario Quinones, a businessman. NO RESPONSE RECEIVED Ben T. Reyes, state representative from District 87 1. City Problem. I consider a breakdown in the quality of life to be Houston's most serious problem. The remedy, I believe, is improved city services and the more equitable distribution of these services. I do not believe we need additional tax dollars, but a wiser spending plan. 2. Battered Women. Yes. I think the City of Houston should, along with private interests, fund the needed shelters. 3. Affirmative Action. I believe that no person should be denied employment or promotion because of sex. When elected I will work for nondiscriminatory practices at City Hall. City government should be a model for other employers. 4. Rape. I believe the entire rape victim services program should be reevaluated. Our goal should be to provide a compendium of readily available services to women who are victimized. 5. Sexual Harassment. Anytime one individual's personal freedom and dignity is infringed upon, the situation is serious. It is my practice to not avoid or neglect any complaint presented to me, this procedure will continue. 6. Women's Advocate. I would support the position because I believe the issues of women have been neglected in our community. I would see such a position as an enrichment to the communication between women and city government. 7. City Jail. Yes. The conditions are miserably inadequate. The new jail will relieve the situation somewhat. I also favor an active and informed pretrial release program. 8. Police/Fire. In an all male force of police or fire, all do not perform the same duties, because of needs and skill. I think this same common sense criteria should be maintained when women join the ranks. 9. Child Care. I support the idea of child care for working parents. I would seriously study the issue of child care for city employees' children. 10. ERA. I am a strong supporter of ERA. I believe the clout of a constitutional amendment will be beneficial to women. 11. Women in your Campaign. My top administrative aide is a woman. Women coordinate the activities of my three campaign headquarters. A woman is in charge of precinct organization for my campaign. My campaign's legal counsel is a woman. My wife is the treasurer of my campaign. Larry Ybarra, manager of an auto rental company and Community Development Commissioner for Magnolia area. 1. City Problem. The most important issue is the city's uncontrolled growth. The city gets bigger and bigger and city services can't keep up with it. We need more planning. We need timetables. This will not mean additional tax dollars, it means saving tax dollars. With better planning we could actually save money and spread what we've got more evenly throughout the city. 2. Battered Women. More shelters are needed. I also feel very strongly that a shelter for Hispanic women is needed in the Hispanic neighborhoods. Hispanic women need a shelter sensitive to our language and cultural needs. I would support and assist a community based organization in seeking private or public funds .to do this. 3. Affirmative Action. It is inequitable, and I know that when you go further and look at what Hispanic women make compared to other women there are further inequities. Hispanic women are at the bottom of the scale. I will work to change that. The city must take affirmative action to insure that all segments of the population are given the opportunity to serve the city and at equal wages. 4. Rape. More services are needed. They are needed in all neighborhoods. The city should work to coordinate efforts in the Health Department, the Police Department and the county neighborhood clinics. 5. Sexual Harassment. YES. I would take them VERY SERIOUSLY and I would not hesitate going to the Department Heads for action. 6. Women's Advocate. All departments in the city need to be sensitive to women's issues. All departments need to take affirmative action to hire more women and at equal salaries and benefits. The mayor needs to appoint women to department heads and to all city boards and commissions. When the mayor or council is asked for recommendations to state and federal boards and commissions, they need to recommend women. We can no longer isolate the problems in one office. It makes it too easy for someone to shrug off their responsibility to women by giving one office all the women's problems. 7. City Jail. No. 8. Police/Fire. All police officers and fire fighters should be treated equally on the job. 9. Child Care. Child care paid in part by the city and the employee 3V2< high quality copies — $7.49 passport photos [ kinko's graphics, inc. ) • Copying • Passport Photos • Printing • Film Process. • Binding • Color Copies C Rice U./Medical Center 2368 Rice Blvd. 521-9465 j U.H./Downtown 2811 Main St. 654-8161 j XEROX 9200 XEROX 9400 The Village Cheese Shop DOMESTIC AND IMPORTED CHEESES GOURMET FOODS FINE WINES COOKWARE MARY ELLEN ALLEN (713) 527-0398 MON-SAT. 9-6 2484 BOLSOVER HOUSTON, TEXAS 77005 fREE pREqNANCy TESTINq & iNfORMATJON 868-4485 KWIK-KOPY 4101 San Jacinto 1968 W.
