Eureka Times Standard (Newspaper) - May 21, 1972, Eureka, California Eureka California the times Standar sunday May 21, 1972 a Page 3 political Roundup will Johnson a Power to the people a in 1959, on the Day before High direction not the local govern Dard the excess would be refund school graduation will Johnson As he puts it a took a deep dive into a shallow three vertebrae were damaged leaving him paralysed from the Chest Down and facing a years stay in a Hospital and a rehabilitation Center. Today operating out of a wheelchair the 30 year old Healdsburg Farmer lawyer As he styles himself is running for second District assemblyman carrying a modified Banner of a Power to the Johnson a Republican presently on leave As Deputy county counsel in Sonoma county says he does no to have much Money and because of this Hasni to yet attracted much support and Hasni to been Able to mount much of a Campaign. He maintains however that he is indeed a serious candidate and that More exposure to the Public could put him even with Gary Antolini who has already received the blessings and godspeed of the Republican Power Structure in the District. Johnson sidestepping a clash Over what he thinks of the Republican establishment Back ing Antolini said a nobody control the Republican party except the Man who pulls the lever in the voting Booth. Vote the Man Quot most people done to know who the three of us Are himself. Antolini and Raymond Paschke. A Santa Rosa businessman. vote for the Man and it la be the Man who reaches the most of them who will win. A a Kingmaker can take their Man in hand for exposure but it will be decided by the average exposure for Johnson has been on a limited basis he says since he Hasni to the Money for massive advertising and news Media campaigns. He says he started with $1,000. Which he borrowed from his parents to help cover his living expenses during the time he son leave from his county Job. A Little bit of Money has been coming in from donations. Proc support the United republicans of California having designated the District As a target area for conservative republicans has Given him $200, he says. And has promised one fourth of the Money raised for the entire four target areas. Johnson is now in the process of getting his finance committee organized and Hopes to raise enough Money for some advertising and the rest of his Campaign expenses. He sees a realistic goal of about $4,000. Quot in a seeking a Broad Cross Section of support from All Sec tors a he said. A a in a picking up support in Healdsburg and i Santa Rosa. Theres some in Humboldt county but not As much As i would like. I done to really know How much of a Campaign i can make up his basically conservative Outlook shows in several of his views on the issues of the Day. Regional government. A on the question of regional a a he said. A i government a he said. Believe we need to return As much Power As possible to local governments. And this puts me in opposition to regional govern ment proposals. A i would go so far As to say that if a regional problem can to be solved by local cooperation there May be some need for a very limited regional approach but my natural Bias is for the need for regional government to be proven before local govern ment can be superseded. A the goal is to return control of our lives to us. If we can t make decisions for our own destiny who can and As a corollary. Let us make our own Johnson said that he believes that it boils Down to the fact that those controlling the Money Are the ones who ultimately set the direction and if a higher or regional entity controls the Money that entity will set the ment. Balanced approach a we need to get Back to a balanced approach of setting of policy in our own sphere of government a he continued. A if this is not what the people want then lets change the constitutions and other documents to reflect the direction the peo pie want to go. A i know i m fighting a historical Stream and i sometimes wonder if in a ahead of my time. Others Are saying a Power to the people a and to a limited extent in a saying the same in the welfare Fields Johnson believes that with Aid to the disabled a person must be made to utilize the capabilities he has and that More emphasis must be put on reclaiming people. A you done to Benefit him by making it easy for him to escape his problems a he said. A i think i can speak with some authority in this Active at College after the Hospital and rehabilitation stays following his Accident Johnson went to Santa Rosa Junior College for two years in business administration then to the University of Illinois where he began majoring in finance but switched to the Law school where he received his degree five years later. A one of the reasons i chose Illinois Quot Johnson said a was for its Outlook on disabled students. The attitude there was that you had to learn to help yourself. Because no employer was going to hire two people for one Job a being yourself and a person to look after while at Illinois Johnson was in the top too students in academic achievement received the service award Given by the disabled students fraternity for outstanding service and played five years of wheelchair touch tackle football partly for the enjoyment and partly to keep himself physically Active. In another welfare area he believes that eventually welfare recipients Are going to have to become involved in some pro Gram to serve a useful purpose rather than just collect the Check each month. Aid for elderly the elderly he says should have some entitlement to a minimum Standard of living and that a close look should be taken at social Security and pension plans. Perhaps he says the govern ment should guarantee to i person that if he were to save a certain per cent of his income during his working years he could have the Money tax free at retirement time. Johnson contends that social Security is not tax free since Money is taken from a workers paycheck each time to pay for it. Property taxes for the elderly should also be reformed he believes so that they can live in their own Homes without the constant fear of losing the Home because they Are on fixed income and property taxes keep rising. In the general Field of pro Perty taxes. Johnson pointed out that most of such taxes go to support schools. Interest groups a the state sales tax was sold to the people originally Quot he said a was a Means to help finance the schools. But the interest groups Are All trying to get theirs and the legislature ends up spending for All of those other projects first and when that a finished then saying a now lets help the a of course the Money a been spent on other things and there is no Money for the he proposes that a certain amount of the 5 per cent sales tax a perhaps three cents on the Dollar be mandated to go to the schools and taken completely out of the Legislatures control. A Stair financial Standard level for schools could then be set he continued. When the Money raised in a certain area does no to come up to the state Standard the state would make it up when its above the Stan ded to the state to help it Aid the under districts. A the legislature will then have to look harder at All of these other programs a Johnson said a because it wont have All of this Money to play around with. More responsive a it will be subject to the Wrath of the voters if it raises taxes and will make it More responsive to the Public a Johnson contends that such a method would leave the counties free to Cut property taxes. If citizens of a certain District want More services for their schools and Are willing to tax themselves extra to finance them then they could he said. On two other issues Johnson democratic club will sponsor a who lives with his parents on a dinner for Barry Keene monday farm at 8303 Highway 1281 at Tarantino a in Miranda. A no outside of Healdsburg in i Host cocktail hour begins at 7 Sonoma county supports con i ., with dinner at 8. Keene Striction of a nuclear Power will speak at 9.

Most people Are unanimous that we done to want Fossil fuels or Long transmission lines that we need local generating sources and that leaves us with nuclear Power As a feasible alternative. He said that there have been no major catastrophes with such nuclear plants that safety standards and engineering criteria Are continually being updated and that a a they re As Safe As any Man made Structure can a we have to be willing to make these decisions and in a willing to make it a he said.
