Transcript Who deserves to win? (continued from page 2 7) Is this man for real? JACK LINVILLE Jack Linville, a political unknown, is running on the campaign slogan, "Linville for Congress. For Real." He has considerable expertise in urban issues and problem solving. He believes he will be in a runoff resulting from Leland and Hall splitting a group of votes, and says he has a chance to win. Linville, who is well supplied with facts, says, "The 18th Congressional District represents a microcosm of the complete spectrum of urban America-a population made up of blacks, whites, Mexican-Americans, Vietnamese and Chinese." The most significant of the district's statistics is the number of elderly and poor. Over 40 percent of the families in the district have a total household income of less than $7,000 per year." Linville bases his campaign on his 10 years of experience in city planning. He is currently Vice President of Rice Center for Community Design and Research, and he is also an adjunct professor of architecture at Rice University. "All of my opponents are honest, able men of high integrity and come from a sound political base. However, they do not have an in-depth understanding of the impact of government programs," Linville says, "and they don't really understand urban issues. "I have spent very little time with traditional political party types. Coming as I do from a professional background, I am going directly to the voters." In conducting a door-to-door campaign, Linville says he often found "an underlying frustration from people's loss of control over their lives. There is a reaction against the death of the individual and a sense of being robbed of individual rights by big government, big business and big institutions. "The voters in the district are most interested in social security, local taxes, jobs, unemployment and inflation. The way to solve social issues is to create jobs and a healthy economy," states Linville. He supports the ERA and extending the time limit for its ratification if necessary; legalizing abortions and making federal funds available for people who can't afford them; child-care programs, parent- training programs and rape programs providing counseling for the victim and much stiffer penalties and greater enforcement for the rapist. On behalf of the World Council ofl Churches, Linville went to Washington and got the only approval to send a ship ment of wheat to Viet Nam. HARREL TILLMAN Former Judge Harrel Tillman says he entered this race "because of the paucity of good candidates already in it." He sees a "lack of maturity and a lack of substance" among his opponents. Tillman is the only attorney in the race, and he says "it would be fool-hardy of the people in the 18th district to elect a non-lawyer." Anthony Hall and Mickey Leland are not doing their jobs, says Tillman. Because the central city, which the 18th district encompasses, is losing population, Tillman expects an effort to do away with the district when the legislature reapportions the state after the 1980 cen sus. Tillman says if Hall and Leland really cared about their constituents, "They would have stayed in the state legislature where they belong," to protect the district. Tillman says he "is not against the Equal Rights Amendment." But he's not sure about whether the ratification deadline should be extended. AL VERA Al Vera represents himself as a new voice of the people. He has been teaching government and economics at Jefferson Davis Senior High School for 14 years. Vera bases his campaign platform on bringing honesty and integrity to government, fighting inflation and increasing take-home pay, reducing unemployment, a strong national defense, a lower crime rate, returning government to the people, a common-sense energy policy, improving education, and strengthening the free enterprise system. Vera opposes abortion and would vote against extension of the deadline for ratification of ERA. NAT WEST Burbank High School English teacher Nat West says he wants to represent the have-nots of the 18th Congressional Dis-| trict, and he repeats, "Have-nots is the key word." West says opponents Hall, Leland, and Robinson are "nothing but super-flies who have filled black minds with non sense." And he says he could do a much better job of really representing the people of the district, because he less flashy and less concerned with style. West's biggest campaign issue is educa-| tion. He advocates creation of a separate department of education . West says he would support an effort to restore public funding for abortions] for poor women and would work toward repeal of the Taft Hartley Act. ^k °JUDGE __ ArT-VOpilC DT3-NS VL for men and women y COUNTY CRIMINAL COURT NO. 8 PHYLLIS R.
