He knew the Ogg challenge would be hard, but felt he ought to do it. "Here's the bottom line on that," she says. "There is an election rule, and Peter Armato knew it, that if an incumbent does not file for a reelection race, the filing deadline is automatically extended for 10 days. There could thus be no plot to keep anybody out with a last-minute withdrawal from the race, as they charge." Danburg's supporters counterattack Armato with questions about the nature of his experience. A woman who worked in Mickey Leland's office (and asked not to be named) said the office hired no replacement for Armato when he left, without notice, on the day his election papers were to be filed. "He was supposed to be a case worker, but he left nothing continuing behind. He was good at calling up people in office, and he talked a lot on the phone, but he didn't contribute much to our work. Mickey is a lot more distant from him than Ron Waters is from Debra." Shifflet disagreed strongly: "Peter assisted me personally in the Gay Rights national lobby in Washington, D.C. He assisted me, when he was Leland's aide, in preparing testimony for the U.S. Civil Rights Division on police brutality. He helped me research the material. He facilitated my meeting with the U.S. Attorney General of the United States about gay- police relations. That's what I call tangible evidence, not words, not offices held." On the non-endorsements: "Mickey Leland is not endorsing me," says Armato, "and Ron Waters is not endorsing me, or Debra—they have no public position on this race, that's all. Nor is Lance Lalor—but I have been close to all these people, I have supported them since 1976. And they wouldn't mind me being in there, either." And then there is his endorsement by the Houston Police Officers' Association. Police? ~~ "The police knew, after that campaign and after I became an aide to Leland, that I was his gay community contact, that I was basically liberal, but still open to speak to them, to listen to them. They knew me. I think to get law enforcement moving in the right direction, you have to get them on your side. I think I have a special talent for it, negotiation, and I have been able, in the campaign, as always, to appeal to different elements here." Armato and Danburg agree that many things are not liberal-conservative issues, but Armato says he could explain and negotiate with more skill: "I explained to the Police Officers Association that they should be treated as professionals, that I would have an open door to their concerns. Says Armato: "Look, I am willing to put in long hours and hard work to get diverse elements together. Mickey Leland has been my mentor in the art of compromise and I know how to do it. I am good at building coalitions and people are going to vote for me on the issues of my expertise at negotiating, which will help save the district, on my plan to build up the neighborhood groups to stop decay and crime, and on my gay rights plans." Replies Danburg: "The bottom line is that I am the only one who has done anything on gay issues in the district. No one else has any history on gay support. I have the experience in the capitol —it is easy to promise people the moon, but I have been there. I know how to protect the district and its people, I know what will work for 79. I was doing the job before some of my opponents ever entered politics." Morris Edelson is a general assignment reporter for the New York Times. DISTRICT 80 BY MARIANITA PADDOCK Lance Lalor won one of the new single member district seats on city council last fall, and nine candidates—eight Democrats and one Republican—filed for his old Texas House position. The candidates seeking the District 80 Democratic nomination are Morgan Dean Allen, Wayne H. Alexander, Patty Bass, Paul Colbert, John Jay Douglass, Janet Fisher, Ray Lemmon and Willard J. Vital. The winner will face Dan Downey in November, who is running unopposed on the Republican ticket. Downey won last February's special election to fill Lalor's vacated House seat, an election in which only some seven percent of the district's voters turned out. Here's a brief run-down on each of the candidates: Morgan Dean Allen, a native Houston- ian, is an independent energy consultant and a founder and organizer of the Texas Black Caucus. He says he wants to work for development of a regional flood control program and the establishment of a long-term plan for safe disposal of nuclear, chemical and solid wastes. He feels the state's educational funds should be re-apportioned more evenly throughout Texas school districts, without a tax hike. Retarded or handicapped children should be integrated with-not segregated from-"normal" children in Texas schools, he says. Wayne H. Alexander, an independent businessman and realtor, has lived in Houston for 12 years. Alexander says he is especially concerned about the "voidness in this community." This "voidness," lies in what he calls the "Four E's—energy, education, economics and environment. "Nuclear power," he says, "should have a low priority as an energy resource," and alternate sources, like solar energy, must be explored. In education, Alexander advocates a state program to teach students basic job skills plus higher teacher salaries to upgrade the quality of education. He says he would also like to reduce the power of the Texas State Railroad Commission. Patty Bass, a native Houstonian, is an attorney for Armogida & Coats. She won the endorsement of the Harris County Women's Political Caucus. A ttorney Patty Bass has been endorsed by the Harris County Women's Political Caucus. HOUSTON BREAKTHROUGH
