10-A THE BAYTOWN SUN TuekUy, April 29. 19* Growder seeking party nomination A. Don Crowder is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor in the May 3 party primary.

He is currently municipal judge for Lucas, Allen and Cross Roads and holds a bachelor's degree and a doctorate in law from Southern Methodist University, During a recent campaign stop In Baytown, Crowder said he supports a state lottery and the legalization of pari-mutuel betting as ways of raising money for Texas, Crowder said a lottery could add $2 billion to $6 billion to state coffers while legalized horse. racing could add another S200 million. Crowder said he is opposed to any new taxes. The educational reforms approved by the Legislature two years ago went too far, too fast, according to Crowder. He said a student's eligibility to participate in sports and other extracurricular activities should be based on the average of all his subjects. The current no-pass, no-play rule bars a student, failing one subject, from participating in extracurricular activities for GROUND QUARTERS DON CROWDER ECKRICH m, I BEEF SMOKED SAUSAGE PRICE SAVER FRYER THIGHS & DRUMSTICKS SHENANDOAH GROUND TURKEY DECKER REG.

On other issues, Crowder said he favors an elected Public Utility Commission which would be more responsive to the public and would keep rates in line. He said he supports prison reform aimed at rehabilitating inmates by providing them with an opportunity to improve their education thereby enabling them to obtain jobs after being released. Crowder said he also favors measures to boost the Mexican economy as a way of stemming the influx of illegal aliens.

Merchandise not sold was donated to the Baytown Area Women's Center and Baytown Sheltering Arms. Debra Price, president of the BBBS advisory board, said the sale was a success and provided the group with experience which will be used in future sales. Proceeds from the sale will fund activities for Big Brothers and Sisters and their matches. e Most recently, matches participated in an Easter egg hunt sponsored by the Key Club and Keywannettes of Ross S..
