Transcript Re-Elect RAY HARDY District Clerk of Harris County Ray Hardy was first elected District Clerk in 1968 and has been serving you in that capacity since that date. Ray Hardy developed and Implemented (with the District Judges) the "One-Day-One-Trial" Jury System for Harris County, saving over 100,000 of your tax dollars each year. The system is now being used as a national model. Hardy established an electronic "Central Crime Intake and Information System" to serve all law enforcement agencies, courts and the people of Harris County. He is recognized for the efficient, courteous service, at low taxpayer cost, given in the District Clerk's Office and the 73 courts the office serves while processing and managing over 100,000 new cases each year. Editorials Houston Chronicle Saturday, Oct u, w% Ray Hardy for district clerk Ray Hardy has been Harris County district clerk since 1967 He has combined expertise and modern technology effectively and efficiently to best serve the needs of this area The Chronicle endorses his candidacy for re-election in the Nov 7 general election. Hardy, 50. has worked in the district clerks office since 1949. He started out as a file clerk and went on to fulfill duties in every department, advancing to chief deputy in 1965. In 1967 the district judges here appointed Hardy district clerk to fill out the term of Dick Lindley, who died in office Hardy was elected to a full term in 1968 and has held the office since. During those years he has consistently improved the system for storage and use of court records, has developed a better system for handling funds deposited in the registry of the court by court order and was instrumental in designing an efficient and fair juror selection and management system that has been used as a model by many other judicial districts. Hardy has held numerous positions in professional organizations and was appointed by the governor as coordinator of the committee monitoring the impact of the Speedy Trial Act on the court system and the effectiveness of plans developed His proven record of service in the office is a compelling argument for his continuation in the position. The Chronicle urges the re-election of Ray Hardy as district clerk in the Nov. 7 general election. Ray Hardy has been endorsed by many leading citizens and professional organizations in Harris County. He is recognized as "Well Qualified" by 98.3% in poll conducted by the Houston Bar Association. Ray Hardy has the experience and proven record of service. VOTE NOVEMBER 7th TO RE-ELECT RAY AS YOUR DISTRICT CLERK!

PROGRESS In our first three years, Breakthrough has defied the laws of publishing by not only surviving, but growing in influence and reputation. The energy that has been directed entirely toward establishing the credibility and editorial excellence of the newspaper now must be directed toward ensuring that Breakthrough becomes a successful business venture. This is it. We're down to the wire. The events of the next months will determine the future of Breakthrough. During November, the Breakthrough staff will be devoting all our efforts to fundraising. Our film benefit on November 10 is our first major project. It will be a unique evening - a celebration of women's culture. You will see Summer Paradise, the highly-praised first film of Swedish director Gunnel Lindblom, who has appeared in several Ingmar Bergman films (the wild woman in The Virgin Spring, Anna in The Silence and the mute girl in Wild Strawberries.) We are bringing the film to the Greenway Plaza Cinema for its Houston — and Texas — premiere. An after-theatre party will be held at Max Hutchinson Gallery, where Colorado artist Linda Fleming installed a monumental outdoor sculpture especially for Breakthrough. Diane Smith and Vicki Guffey Miller co-ordinated the benefit and Max Hutchinson has donated the wine. Another phase of our fundraising effort, and indeed the most crucial one, will be to approach people with the financial resources to invest in Breakthrough. Over the past few months, we have consulted attorneys, CPA's, business advisors and other publishers to discuss our options. We are now ready to meet with potential backers to present them with a business prospectus and a five-year growth plan. If you know someone who is in a position to invest in the future of the women's press in Texas, now is the time to let us know. Breakthrough is a good business investment. We have survived on a shoestring in a city where other, better- financed publications have folded. Just think what could be accomplished if we had the money to pay a staff. We'd probably become a weekly within a year! See you at the movies! P.S. Because of our involvement with fund-raising this month, we will not be spending much time in the office during working hours. We have a 24-hour answering service, so let it ring and leave a message. We'll call you back as soon as possible.
