Clements State Capitol Building Austin, Texas Dear Governor Clements: In view of the recent revelations about the April 18 "inmate hunt" which Jerry Hodge, vice-chair of the state prison board, arranged and to which he invited Glenn McMennamy from the Board of the Department of Human Services and an out-of- state friend in what he styled "The Ultimate Hunt," we call upon you to request the resignations of Mr. Hodge and Mr. McMennamy. The importance of the positions which Mr. Hodge and Mr. McMennamy hold are too important for the lives of Texans to be entrusted to people who have so little respect and sensi- tivity for the dignity of individuals -- and who show no remorse or shame for having engaged in such callous and repulsive conduct.
