Transcript Jon Lindsay, a 42-year-old former building contractor, won election as Harris County Judge over his opponent Joe Pentony. Lindsay took 61.2 percent of the votes. Four years ago, Lindsay upset the Democratic incumbent to become the first Republican Harris County judge since Reconstruction. On campus November 3, 1978, Lindsay said his background in civil engineering qualified him for the mostly administrative work as Harris County Judge. He said a jail facility adequate to Harris County needs until 1995 could be built for $45 to $50 million instead of the $80 million facility proposed by his opponent. Lindsay also said that flooding would always be a problem in Harris County and that it would cost at least $ 10 billion to make 90 percent of the county safe from flood damage. Lindsay has been working to set aside areas along bayous for parks and is credited with aiding the county to acquire 2,100 acres along Cypress Creek for parks. Lindsay's stand on annexation merely asked that city officials consider what such programs did to township volunteer services as a result of annexation. Jim Baker, who lost in his bid for Attorney General against Mark White during the November 1978 elections by claiming about 35 percent of the votes to White's 65 percent, spoke to students on Tuesday, October 11. Baker planned to challenge the constitutionality of the natural gas bill and file suit in federal district court if elected. Baker said the Texas criminal justice system should be reformed, proposed a system of fixed length sentencing for criminals and said that a distinction be made between first time juvenile offenders and those with long records. Baker said he was a supporter of capital punishment and the death penalty as a deterrent to crime. He was not in favor of decriminalizing marijuana possesion but said it should not be classed as a felony. Baker planned to continue the fight to collect taxes from the Howard Hughes' estate, supported the state's right-to-work law and the Supreme Court's decision giving women the right to have abortions. Baker, a native Houstonian, is a senior manager in a local law firm and a practicing lawyer for 18 years. 94
