Pete Tripodi, a UNC junior from
Irwin, announced Wednesday his
candidacy for the 17th District seat now
held by Ike Andrews of Siler City.
Andrews announced Wednesday his
candidacy for the 4th District U.S.
Congressional seat which is now held by
"I feel as though the students and
young people of Orange and Chatham
counties have been left out of the
decision-making process in our state
legislature," Tripodi. a Democrat, said at
a noon press conference in the Student
Union. "I think now that we have the
18-year-old vote young people and
students deserve representation in the
legislature," he added.
Tripodi said he thinks he is qualified,
as a resident of this district and as a
student, to represent all the people of this
district inclusive of the University and its
students rather than exclusive as it has
been in the past.
Tripodi, 21, a political science major,
plans to attend law school. He has been a
resident of Orange County for two and a

Letters of regret will be read from those invited

The dress and dancing competition will follow.
Dance competition is expected in such areas as
ring-around-the-rosie and Hava Nagela. Prizes will
include old Spike Jones and XavierCugat recordings.
"Weather permitting," King Nyle said, "we will
have a piano in the Pit and trumpeters on the roof of
the Student Store. We're also asking people to bring
their own musical instruments and food.
"The society editors from the Durham Morning
Herald's women's news section will definitely attend.

"I want to do what is best for
Chatham and Orange counties." he said,
"and I would not and will not hesitate to
align myself with either liberals or
conservatives to get what is best, or what
is needed, in this district."
His immediate concerns are the impact
of UNC on Orange Count and the
industrial development in the two
counties. Tripodi said. He added. "The
state should shoulder some of the burden
placed on Orange County related to the
tax-exempt University's being here.
"I would also welcome industries
coming to Orange and Chatham, but only
if they are willing to spend what would
be necessary to abide by federal and local
environmental protection regulations."
He expressed hopes citizens will realize
a young person running for office "doc
not mean we are trying to take over or
disrupt the political svstem. but rather we
are responsible, concerned and willing to
work and get involved now that we have
the right to vote."
Tripodi said he realizes he will need
more money than other candidates
because he is not as well known. He said
he had financial backing but would r.ot
name his backers.

officials filed a copy of a recall petition
Wednesday with the Flections Board in
an attempt to place Student Legislator
Charles Gilliam's seat up for election.
"W e're not necessarily out to impeach
him (Gilliam)." said Randy Crittenton. a
Morrison senator. "But this recall election
would give people a chance to put him
back in office or support someone else."
A letter addressed to Elections Board
Chairman Larry Lggert and accompanied
by a copy of the recall petition was
signed by Crittenton, Joe Grier. governor
of Morrison, and Janette Steenhuis.
speaker of the Morrison Senate.
Gilliam, Morrison representative,
chairman of the Publications Board and
member of Student Legislature's (SL)
Rules Committee, said he had not seen a
copy of the petition and cannot respond
"until I have determined what, if any,
charges they have made against me."
"1 have not been confronted by any of
these persons," Gilliam said. "They have
not attempted to inform me of any
reasons for taking this action."
Crittenton said under SL procedure
the Elections Board must verify the text
of the petition within five days and "we
will be able to circulate the petitions in
Morrison starting next Monday."
Signatures from 25 percent of the
questioned official's constituency - 150
names for Morrison dormitory - are
required to effect a recall election,
according to SL statutes.
"Ironically, the SL recall procedure
was authored by Gilliam himself,"
He said the recall action against
Gilliam was "literally a grass roots issue
"A lot of people have been observing
that Gilliam is a leading figure in turning
SL into a circus," Crittenton added.
"And a lot of people are tired of seeing
