Pool heckles Eckels chances By Ellen Munger and Marjory Barnhart Janis Pool wants to see Harris County be responsible for itself. That's why she is the Democratic Party nominee for Harris County Commissioner, Precinct 3. Home rule is needed, even if it takes special legislation for Harris County. The present system of county government in Texas was originally designed for rural communities and small populations. "Changes must take place constitutionally," Pool states. But the cry for change will only be heard in Austin when the elected official's cry is as loud as hu^er constituents'. S^ie must be willing to assume the needed responsibilities of progressive county government such as ordinance-making powers." Right now the county commissioner has no ordinance- making or enforcement powers. Allocating funds is the prime 12 ffTfbh )) ^Pi^kS^^ II ^IK/ISawS^sgB. I SgHIiil X§l fflvuf^ ^Slf DANIEL BOONE CYCLES 5318 Crawford 526-7011 JOY BOONE and SARAH PIPAS Women who know bicycles function of the commissioners at present yet most of the planning in Harris County is done by the City of Houston. Pool wants to see more planning done by the county "that's not done by mortgage bankers." (This will be difficult since the county planning budget was cut from $25,000 to $12,500.) But the credibility of its spending policies is only one area that Pool addresses. A commissioner approves subdivision drainage systems, and the flood control district would be Pool's most important area of concern. She cites an example of 100 houses draining into a single ditch. "We can't wait until somebody important enough has his home float a- way." Another main focus of Pool's campaign is the West Belt, which does not look as if it will ever be built. Pool talked with homeowners in the fast-growing area who feel that a four-lane road, and not a 14-lane highway, should be built. They don't want to wait until the time it takes two hours to get downtown. She feels that the future of Houston depends on solving county problems NOW. Her persistence in attending every session of commissioner's court, where Pool feels she has observed the lack of a true forum for the public, is one of the qualities which has won the endorsement of the Harris County Women's Political Caucus and its state organization in Austin. The local caucus voted to canvass voters on a one- to-one basis jn the SW Houston area (one of five areas in Precinct 3). They hope to acquaint voters with Pool and her issues. Pool is finding widespread support from the woman voter, and her quick wit and intelligent approach to issues has won her the support of Republicans and independents as well as her own party. She vows that she will be readily available to the people, giving credence to her main campaign slogan "She listens." Listening to voters complain about "the rocks in their shoes" is a unique feature of this grassroots candidate. Since March, Pool has conducted a series of workshops to find out the needs of Harris County residents who, if she is elected, will be her constituents. Many of them want to see a citizens' task force begin a comprehensive reassessment of county criminal justice functions. And Pool would like to see them have access to a telephone hot line for obtaining basic information about county services and for centralizing citizens' complaints. Pool first considered running for the office during a family conference at the dinner table with her husband Scott and their children Smiley, 10, Paige, 15, and Tricia, 17. Janis' mother Pat Orr helps with the organization ot the home, giving Pool more time to spend in her civic involvements, that they are supporting me because I was the only one who had the nerve to file, 'Pool says. She says she's through paying homage to bad government which she feels is like "feeding the alligator and hoping it'll eat you last. "It gripes me that people should fear my opponent, Bob Eckels. I find it very frightening that fear prevails among the public. No one should be afraid to express his or her views of county actions to an elected official. People act as though the world had conceded Precinct 3 to Bob Eckels. Well, no one should have that much power and go unchallenged." Pool has long been involved in civic and church organizations pouring her energies into fields ranging from drug abuse to community action. In announcing her candidacy, Pool, a native Houstonian, explained, "I have filed for office because I am free to care. I office for any personal gain. I simply want to see that every resident receives the basic county services to which s/he is entitled and for which s/he has paid."
