Transcript HOUSTON VOICE / AUGUST 16, 1996 17 Hill Announces for City- Council Seat Community activist Ray Hill has announced that he will seek election to a city council seat this November in what is expected to be a crowded race with as many as 20 contenders vying for the position. The At-large District #4 seat is currently held by John Peavy Jr. who has announced his resignation. Hill has been an occasional candidate in previous races. Zoning is among the issues Hill says he is concerned with stating, "There are 15 voting members around the city council table including the Mayor and none of them seem to remember that the voters rejected zoning in a 1993 referendum." Hill continued by claiming, "Zoning failed in Montrose precincts because the city announced well in advance that the gay business district on Pacific Street would remain for a limited time and could not expand as our community grew." "Basically government should stay out of people's lives, " asserts Hill. He makes claims against two ofthe members of City Council.by saying, "Helen Huey wants to decide what choices adults have to spend their entertainment dollars and Martha Wong wants to decide what books, magazines and videos we can read or view. The rest of City Council feels obligated to give them the power to do so. This is a silly waste of tax and police resources that are needed elsewhere." During the Texas legislative session, Hill works as a paid lobbyist for businesses that sell "adult material," such as books and videos. Hill charges that the City Council Chamber is an echo chamber. He claims there is little dissent at City Hall because they agree ahead of time to avoid conflict. Hill states, "The voters may not want 14 Ray Hills on City Council but we do not need 15 Bob Laniers either. There should be enough disagreement to create co promises in the interest of the public. As things are now there are no opportunities for compromise." Concerning Metro funds Hill says that we are headed for a future with major mobility problems because Metro funds are being used for short term goals instead of long term planning. Hill adds, "The city administration has drained Metro's bank accounts to support costs unrelated to mobility. Now they want to get the Olympic Games here to justify the use of other tax sources to do what Metro funds were supposed to do in the first place. Poor planning and poor priorities are the result of the go along to get along attitude in Council Chamber." Ray Hill is well known in the community as being outspoken and a bit of an agitator. He hosts "The Prison Program" on KPFT radio on Sunday afternoons, a volunteer pqsition which he will have to leave during the time he is running for office. The fact that he has a prison record is often brought up against him. Hill was arrested and imprisoned for commercial burglary. He responds by saying that he did the crimes and paid his time. He "retired" from that business in 1970. Hill promises to develop positions on other issues as the campaign continues. a/t$375 Montrose one Bedroom Apartments * limited access gates * covered parking Call Scott for Move-In Specials 266-1444 WIN M, C#4H On Sunday, September 29, 1996 one of 1,500 ticket holders will win a fully restored 1986 Nissan Maxima!
