Transcript Houston's Mayor Speaks at UH Mayor Bob Lanier shows support for UH through informative education The University of Houston was graced with the presence of Houston's Mayor, Bob Lanier, through the Elkins Leadership Forum, which is sponsored by the Honors College. The Mayor was persuaded to come and speak to any willing student who desired to attend his lecture. "The Elkins Leadership Forum is designed to bring leaders from politics, business, arts and other facets of life to come and speak to the students about life, the real world and the university in general," explained Dr. John Ettling, the Associate Dean of the Honors College. "This was the first year we tried this and we look forward to its future success." The evening began with a small, informative reception where a select group of Honors College stu dents were able to converse with Mayor Lanier in a unique one-on-one situation. He opened the floor to the inquisitive students and he addressed some in depth questions ranging from the proposed new dome in Downtown Houston to the annexation of the Willowbrook and Katy areas. "Mayor Lanier showed a very pragmatic business-like approach to politics," said Freshman Ashlea Bullard. Following the initial reception, the Mayor and his guests had dinner after which, was a lecture to the general public. This setting added more audience members, and despite the label of "lecture" the Mayor again went into a question and answer session. Once again, some of the more prominent issues were brought up, and Houston's situation with regards to the South West Conference split. Mayor Lanier was sincere in his displeasure of the University of Houston being snubbed by the "Big 8," and told of his adamant displeasure to Governor Ann Richards. When asked if this had hurt his relationship with Gov. Richards, he replied, "I'm 69 years old and I can do what I want. I don't care if it's wrong or right, only that I believe in it." Junior Robert Fugarino said, "I was impressed that Mayor Lanier who is so busy would come and show support for his city's university." The university was very lucky to have such a busy and important figure in this city take time out of his schedule and visit with students and potential constituents.
