Walla Walla Union Bulletin (Newspaper) - May 19, 1976, Walla Walla, Washington 14 Walla Walla Union-Bulletin Wednesday, May 19, 1976 Mac-Hi asks $370,527 school-tax levy By JIM CARLTON Of the Union-Bulletin MILTON-FREE WATER - Voters in the McLoughhn Union High School District are being asked to approve a $370,527 tax levy on May 25 so the district can balance a proposed $972,071 budget It is the second time thus year the district has had to submit a levy to the voters. The first proposed levy' of $407,407 was defeated last March 9. It would have balanced a $l-million proposed budget which was estimated to he 14 per cent higher than the current operating budget. School Supt E. R Miller says there has been $28,073 cut from the original proposal since the first defeat Miller says the budget committee was able to make the cuts without curtailing any programs in the district. The biggest cut was $9,304 for supplies, he says, reducing that category’ from $105,221 to $95,917. Miller says proposed new text books were cut out to make the reduction possible Approximately $7,174 were reduced from contracted services This made the new proposal for that category $95,492 instead of $102,666 according to Miller Salaries were reduced from a proposed $608,205, to $602,150. Miller says. He says this was made possible because there are some teachers who are retiring and replacements for them will be hired at lower salaries. Also cut were $5,540 from equipment, making that budget category $44,034 instead of the campaign original proposal of $49,574 Miller says the budget committee does not think any further reductions can be made without cutting school programs or possibly reducing the staff. The new levy proposal estimates that tax rates will increase from the current $7.11 per $1,000 of true-cash value to about $8, according to Miller The first levy was defeated 539 to 344. Miller says he thinks it was defeated because voters are concerned about rising taxes and some people thought there are too many administrators in the district. The superintendent says this is not so. He says there is a half-time administrator in the district, a quartertime speeial-program coordinator, a full-time principal, a full-time vice principal and a one-third-time activities director Miller is also superintendent of the Milton-Freewater Elementary School District. “A lot of people think I'm a fulltime administrator for both districts,” he says.

SALEM, Ore. < AP) — Six candidates, all with business or government service backgrounds, want the job of counting Oregon’s money. The current state treasurer, lawyer James Redden, is seeking the attorney general’s post. Continuing the musical chairs scenario, Secretary of State Clay Myers wants to move from the east end of the Capitol to the west end, on the same floor where Redden has his office. But first Myers, a Republican who has been secretary of state for more than nine years, must beat two challengers from his own party as well as the Democratic nominee The other Republican candidates are Irvin Mann. 57, director of the State Agriculture Department from 1971-75 and a former legislator from Eastern Oregon, and John Smets, 49, Lake Oswego businessman. The Democratic candidates in the May 25 primary are Jewel Lansing, 46, Multnomah County auditor; Mel Gordon. 54, a member of the Multnomah County Commission since 1963, and Marvin J. Hollingsworth, 39. a Portland lawyer and former legislator. Myers, who was recruited by Republican leaders to seek the treasurer s post, was in insurance before former Gov. Tom McCall appointed him secretary of state. Myers since has been elected twice to the secretary of state’s job. A part of the inducement to run, Myeres received a promise of up to $5,000 from the State Republican Central Committee to pay the salary of his campaign coordinator.

Traditionally, the state party has not given contributions to primary candidates who have opponents. Mann, who proudly says he was the first Republican fired when Democratic Gov.
