' The general elections are in November. , But there are others who don't see the Com mittee's vote as that significant. - "Our position hasn't changed," said Frank W. Ballance, a Warren ton attorney and chair man of thedistrict-wide caucus that is spearheading the write-in . effort. "We have said all along that t-i's is not a decision that Mickey Michaux is r aking, but the peopl ; ot the Second District." Ballance said he; doesn't view the Durham Committee's delay as crippling the write-in ef-; fort. "I would think) there's a lot of sentiment out there (in the 2nd i District) for the write-in ; and that's something Mickey will have to take yinto consideration." Dr. James P. Green, who heads the Caucus's fundraising committee, takes a pragmatic view of the situation. the Durham - County Commission, is about to upset somebody's apple cart. Or so the story goes' in the county office ' building and in ' most political conversations these days. Mrs. Heron at about 5 feet, 3 inches tall, and 120 pounds, does not ap-' pear to be an imposing threat to the "good old boy, cigar smoking" she is elected to the Com-! mission in November; and joins a five-member! body with two, black members, - things will never be the same again. at. a time . when thej, heavyweights are trying. to cqprince black; not to ': -endorse a write-irr effort " t on behalf, of H.M.

This was the first time in three years that schools opened in Philadelphia without a teachers strike. in. denies the but says he's! the write-in Michaux is Sexual Harassment (Continued from Front) j Dr. Lavonia Allison, who favors the write-in, may be able to throw enough weight to have the political committee, ufiirh clip fViuirc rnm& "I think this move (the. hark with annth nrn. n...u r'm,:-io. 7" ' k-" LUlIiaill V-UlllllllllVV 3 action) saves Michaux some money," Dr. Green said. "But we still can't sell the black com munity down the tube for dollars." The money refers to Michaux's campaign debt. At the Durham Com mittee meeting, Michaux gave an off-the-cuff financial report. He said that of his total cam paign expense of just over $200,000, about 40 came from, labor groups and political ac tion committees. He said he loaned the campaign about $80,000 personal ly, and the rest of about $65,000 came from in dividual contributions. According to Michaux's reckoning, this works out to about $6500 per county in the ten-county 2nd District, about 45 per cent of which came from black contributors. The implication was clear: during the cam paign, black folks didn't match their enthusiasm with money. So now that the Michaux campaign has an outstanding debt to pay off, there are those who say that Gov. Hunt's promise to buy 250 tickets to a fun .draiser scheduled for later this month has had serious significance on Michaux's write-in views. The tickets are $50 each, so if Hunt buys 250, it means $12,500 toward paying off the ' debt. But if Michaux will get the money from Hunt, what will Hunt get? . The write-in effort is seen fas divisive to the Democratic Party, and it is generally understood that Hunt needs a united ' party if he is to have a chance r in a : projected U.S. Senate race against incumbent Jesse Helms. Sources say that Hunt has dispatched his senior advisor, Ben Ruffin, into the fray to make sure that the write-in loses steam. .., Ruffin became iden tified with the write-in opposition ; when Gov. Hunt, speaking recently before the N.C. Associa tion of Black Elected Of ficials, urged . 2nd District blacks to get behind I.T. "Tim" Valentine. Hunt's state ment came one week after the 2nd District Black Caucus launched the write-in effort. And that's why many blacks are simply mad. They say white Democrats are only con cerned about party unity when a white Democrat is running against another white candidate But when a black person wants to represent the Democratic Party, many Wacks say . party unity becomes a secondary issue to race. Now. back to Ruffin. Some blacks have charg- write-m recommenda tion, but it appears to be an uphill battle. There are other in fluential blacks who could deliver, but may back down at Michaux's urging or Ruffin's. woman who had been arrested on drunken driving charges. According to the DA's charges, the two men promised to "fix" the charges for the woman, and later went to her home where both were; intimate with her. This case is still pending. But for all practical purposes, of ficials are treating this as an isolated incident rather than as an indication of a, possible pattern, despite a number of other charges by women. OveY the summer, a young coed, arrested following a misunderstan ding between ner and a police officer in the county courthouse, charged that she was propositioned by an of ficer while he talked with her in an in terrogation room. Several weeks ago, a number of in Durham women who had been charged with prostitution, told The Carolina Times that they routinely have to field requests for sexual tavors trom some police officers exchange for not being arrested. A- But still, elected officials are un willing to pull rank on the internal af fairs system. City Councilman Maceo Sloan, for example, said;. "There is a possibility for problems because, a lot is left to the discretion of the higher ranking officers. But y the safety valve in the process is the city manager, who receives periodic reports on police activities..-. It is not clear how often these' reports are filed, or how detailed they are. Another, city council member, Ms. , Jane Davis, said: "I don't know how many complaints there are, but we have been assured that they're handl ed appropriately. But if citizens think they aren't, they can talk to their council representative. And ultimate ly, they can initiate a lawsuit against the officer." But in light of the current system, these options are of questionable value, since the council appears to be unwilling to grant the complaints suf ficient substance to warrant an in dependent investigation, and it would be difficult to mount a successful lawsuit without access to information that the police argue no citizen should have. Del Castilho also says a citizen review board is not a workable alter native because many citizens cannot understand the operations of the police department, And even ifuch a board existed, he believes it would come to be viewed by many people as legitimizing police misconduct. "The main thing I want people to understand," asserted the city manager, "is that we the city manager, the council and the public safety director x want a clean department that's viewed as being clean . And if it takes removing an of- ; ficer from the force to achieve that, that's what will be done." Del Castilho's assertion not- : withstanding, that view appears to be . a long way off for many citizens.
