Master's Professional Reports Abstract

Affirmative Action in Municipal Government: A Comparative Analysis of the Cities of Midland and Odessa, Texas
Dalton, Pat F.
REPORT 1999 D174 Public Affairs Library

This report will examine one aspect of the issue of Affirmative Action. I will analyze the Affirmative Action programs of two comparable cities in Texas, specifically Midland and Odessa. After analyzing these programs within each municipal government, I will attempt to gauge the "feel" of the citizens of each city. By conducting a survey in two locations in each city, I will try and determine how the citizens of Midland and Odessa feel in regard to employment opportunities with both the private sector and the respective municipal governments. After that, I will summarize my findings and draw conclusions. I will also offer several recommendations for both Midland and Odessa.
