Saliday, GOP Rep., Suggests 'Pep-Up' in Party Set-Up "Don't hold the line, move the line forward!" said George Saliday, Republican state representative from the Ann Arbor District. Mr.. Saliday was the guest speaker at a recent Young Republicans' meeting here. Saliday has been mentioned as a possible gubernatorial candidate for the Republican party. Representative Saliday said the key problem facing any state legislature is to keep pace with the growth of the state and ihe "holding the line" in regards io taxes and expenditures for state programs. Mr. Saliday brought out three points that he thought weakened the Republicans at the polls last fall. "The party has not established a strong enough program to present to the people," he stated. He added that more positive action on forming such a program would improve the party's position in Michigan. The second point he made was a sharp criticism of the failure of past candidates to carry on a doorbell-ringing type of campaign. "We must contact the voters where they are, not where we , think they are." Saliday said. He concluded by showing the need for a pep-up of party machinery. To do this he suggested recruiting more volunteers to work on an increased number of local committees. Ii' 1 -. i r ; t a ii • * t ii i 4 I'/ I f 1 -I ' 91 S . ? 'SI1 '
