Transcript 8 Women's advocate cont... Among recent city happenings thai, bode we" r at least be-^t^r) for women in city government, the city council pa :sed a resolution, written up by the affirmative action commission* on eoral employment and economic opportunity. In the latest shapt of the Gr ..'; Library Card Dispute, the Houston Public Library continues to Insist that it needs the names of would-be card-carrying borrowers as listed in the Criss-Cross Directory, but has agreed to request that all married persons, not Just married women, list their spouse's name. The Women* Advocate's Office is currently doing research on city insurance benefits, especially maternity. Poppy reported that the most promising openings for women in city government have occurred in the police departmentt although the police chief still refuses to assign women officers to certain tasks. Job titles have been changed from policemen and patrolmen to police officers. Because of lack of turnover, women will probably not be seen on all levels of city employment for years. However, department heads will be required tc report more promptly and In more detail, with respect to goals and timetables for hiring, to Civil Service. Among future projects the Women's Advocate mentioned is a TV show on channel 8, "Women's Advocate, ' which Poppy will host. Broadcasting starts Tuesday August at 9:45 pm and continues every Tuesday thereafter. The show will advise on problems such as filing complaints with EEOC, legislative reform, rape, etc. Don't miss it! Poppy told the caucus that she felt her office was also Important as a vehicle for communication and referral. For example, when there are openings on boards and commissions or for department head positions in the city, her office can supply resumes of qualified women. She requested that women who have experience or expertise and who are Interested In being considered for such positions send resumes to her office. HARRIS COUNTY: OUGHT IT AUDIT? The policy council voted not to participate in a suit seeking to compel Harris County to allow an independent, complete audit of its funds, on the grounds that the Information provided on the situation was not specific enough, and the legal status of the suit Insufficiently established, to warrant caucus participation. The consensus of the group was that further information would be sought ard the question considered again. Frederick Kay, caucus-endored former candidate for the position of county clerk, asked for HCWPC participation In this suit. He told the policy council that he has Joined with two other individuals in the suit, which accuses the county of failure to comply with Article l64ld, - calling for an annual independent audit, and which demands that such an audit be Implemented. Kay charged that the county has not allowed the sort of audit which he said is required by law in twelve years, but In answer to members' questions, he supported his charges only with rather vague and disjointed documentation.
