"Fiscal responsibility will be the major issue in Arizona in 1966," he said. "The opposition told us we had money to meet state needs without raising the tax rate. The voters have demonstrated clearly they know this isn't true. I believe they know I am making a sincere effort to economize through budget reform.

Williamson, a former air borne unit commander in Vie Nam, told newsmen this wee that the number of Negroes ii his outfit, the 173rd Airborn Brigade, ran no higher than in other units.
