"One of the first steps would be to require a referendum of the registered voters ..." the letter states. "Beyond that, we will have the Courts available." The firm was "retained to assist a group of citizens iri Saline," according to the letter, signed by John S, Dobson; ("Before he deals with City Council, he'll have to teE us who he's representing," Stanton Roesch, Saline City Attorney said yesterday. "Any attorney who is not a resident must be representing an interested party—that is, a resident. Otherwise, he won't be heard.") A number of East Michigan residents have fought the proposed "commercial" zoning of their property through two public hearings and a Council meeting at which they presented a petition, signed by 29 residents, against the zoning change. The letter continued, in part: "The suggested rezoning will, create what is commonly known as a. 'string street development, universally recognized as yery bad zoning practice and certainly not attractive to view. Those whom we represent do not feel that it is in the best interest of the community of SaMne^td-.have* the business Jps- stSct "-^ming ^e*uts^>__ubrig,f4ts main street, so that those passing through will tend to view Saline as merely a wide place in the road rather than the very pleasant community which;we know it to he. "The owners of the residences which will be adjacent to the proposed new commercial area and those whose properties iall within (it), will suffer irreparable financial harm ... : "The hearings held on this subject have already brought to your attention the strong feelings in opposition to the proposed rezoning ... "A particular case in point is the proposed Standard Oil gasoline'station which it is proposed will be placed right next door**to a fine residential dwelling which has been recently .remodeled, and almost directly across the street from the CarL Curtiss home, which we all- know is one of Saline's landmarks. Each of you will recognize the serious harm which will the properties mentioned "Because of the serious harm which would be done to the area, we Heel obliged to contest this matter in .every way that the law makes available. . ." The letter was in the hands of all City Coimcil members today "so fh4y would have plenty of time to think about it before Monday's meeting," Randall Peterson A Candidate In. Sheriff Primaries Captain George A. Peterson, head of the uniform division of the Washtenaw County Sheriffs Department, and veteran of 15 years experience with - the de-- partinent, today announced .his intention to seek the Republican nomination for Sheriff in the August primary. If he is elected, Peterson said former Undersheriff Charles W. Shaw will return to the department- in his previous position. Shaw, who had _served with the Sheriffs department for 16 years declined to accept an appointment as sheriff after the death of the late Sheriff Erwin L. .Klager and resigned immediately following the appointment of -the' present Sheriff, Robert E. A. Lillie, to the post. A signed approval irom Shaw accompanied Peterson's statement. Petersorij. 50, was third in command in the "department under Sheriff "Klager, with the rank of Captain. He was a fee deputy for two years before becoming a regular deputy in 1943, was promoted to sergeant in 1951. - One of his primary concerns in seeking the.nomination, Peterson said,is "thetragicslaughter on out-county highways this year. In all of 1957, only 28 persons were killed in automobile accidents in cMs county. Yet, in only three Months so far this year, 23 have died." "
