Currently, 19 percent ot those companies operate their toll- free system all week long. • • School budget adopted LANSING,. Mich. (AP) — A Democrat running for secretary of state, siiid Friday that radio ads about vehicle registration renewals promote incumbent Republican Candice Miller— even though her name and voice never appear in the ads. John Austin, a Gonesee County road commissioner, said the $110,000 advertising buy planned for Inter this year in Detroit and Grand Rapids amounted to a political push for Miller. "The campaign is the beginning of Cnndice Miller's re-election campaign, and she's asking taxpayers to foot the bill," Austin said. . The ads promote renewing a registration through the mail, over a fax or on the Internet. They are being scheduled to run from July to September, with a gap of one or two weeks around the Aug. 4 political primary. John Long, director of public affairs for Miller, called Austin's charges "baseless and reckless." "She said There will not be my name, my voice or any mention of me in the ada,"* Long said. "We wanted to avoid any conflict on that. That was an edict." Long said the ada will run in Detroit and Grand Rapids because those cities are teat sites to measure the response to the ads, He also said the ads will not run around the primary to avoid being lost in a rush of other advertising. Austin — who's not related to Richard Austin,.the former secre- tary of state'.—"said even if the ads never mention Miller, they still should be cancelled. "Certainly, this money goes to promote herself; that is, the ads are just as .much about the woman as they are about services at your good, local secretary of state office," he said. The state Democratic convention later this summer will select a candidate to oppose Miller in November. She is expected to win the GOP nomination without trouble.

He said he is entering the race to give Republicans another chgice in their nomination for governor.
