Texas 77008 GOP TARGETS Focus on races in State Legislative District 79 and State Senate District 15. •BY MORRIS EDELSON- The Republicans are licking their chops. Voters, undeterred by charges that they're apathetic or stupid, and ticked off by a drooping national pride and the economy, will be charging to the polls in record numbers this November, ready to fight back. "In times of Bandaids and aspirins, voters go to Democrats," says Senator John Tower. "When they want stronger stuff, they come to the Republican Party." Tower's explanation of why former civil rights leaders are endorsing Ronald Reagan and not a more liberal candidate applies to local races as well. The Democratic Party, its adherents, and anyone who ever shook hands with a liberal, are now in trouble, the most trouble they have been in since Reconstruction days. The signs are more plentiful than election posters. Political analyst Dr. Richard Murray points out that the Republicans in Harris County and most of its electoral subdivisions are winning simply by body-count: "Most of the new population growth around Houston, especially out in the suburbs are Republicans. They are accustomed to voting Republican for a more conservative choice." These new people, and some old ones, no longer appreciate the catholicity of the go-along, get-along style of typical Texas Democratic Party operations. That is why Debra Danburg and Jack Ogg, running against unknowns for the Texas House and Senate, respectively, and representing sizeable chunks inside the Loop, must nevertheless run scared. The Republicans anywhere and everywhere have ceased to be pushovers, and with their star in the ascendant, have attracted power-hungry people, money and the opportunities formerly thought to be liberal. State Legislative District 79 Debra Danburg couldn't be more suitable for state legislator. Wonder Woman with a touch of Huck Finn, heir- apparent to the outgoing popular State Representative Ro,n Waters, articulate, a bootstrapper, steely and charming, clear about community involvement in solutions to the growing destabilization of the inner city, crime, police, service lacks, probable downgrading or urban removal and continuing racism, sexism, monopoly. . . When she and her opponent for the District 79 seat appear in public, she overwhelms Hap May with facts, deeds and opinions and he retreats crab-like into agreement or silence. May did not even show up for the Channel 8 taping of the candidates in which he was to appear with Danburg. The conclusion of a featured interview of the two candidates in a local interview magazine, went as follows: DD. All the issues we've been talking about, I've been working on for a number of years. I have thick files of cases where we've achieved successful resolutions, legislation I've worked on in the past, legislation I've already drafted for the future, which can positively, tangibly affect people's lives in District 79 in a beneficial way. I'm glad to see that you are finally taking an interest in this community and in public lite, and I hope you continue to do that. But in seeking public office, I think it's most beneficial to start on the ground level and work your way up. Start in civic and community groups; start in party politics as a delegate; w^rk in other people's campaigns. Actually join the poltical groups in black, Mexican-American, senior citizens groups and work in those groups. There are coalitions in these communities, and in the feminist and gay communities. Get to know people. Don't just start by knocking on doors two months before an election. Work with people for common goals, helping build parks in the Heights, working in the civic improvement groups. Working like that it's very easy to develop an appreciation for your community and for those people for you. It's very encouraging. I urge you to try it. HM: I .am involved with this community. I love the people in this community. I will continue as you've advised me to. Danburg, of course, outlined her political career in that advice, and May characteristically retreated. What hasn't the woman done? Nights in law school, getting her degree, a precinct judge, Democratic Executive Committee member, and issues chair of the Harris County Democrats. A life-long resident in 79, she has won the endorsement of women's groups, minority groups, and her many political allies, many of them usually nor-partisan. Out soliciting funds for her campaign are her Democratic primary opponents, Peter Armato, who ran second, Richard Petro- nella and Don McCrorey. Danburg takes strong positions on the developing environmental mess in the 16 HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH
