(Madison, WI) When Paul Soglin elected Madison's youngest mayor 4 years ago, he was anti-establishment and fresh from University of WI. Now he's more conservative and is having tough race to keep post. Opponent is Anthony Nino Amato, who's been alderman for 2 years and is 25 years old. [AMATO - says mayor doesn't follow through on own ideas but turns it over to bureaucracy.] [SOGLIN - says Amato doesn't understand taxation or budgeting and distorts things.] Major campaign issues are property taxes, city spending and pornography, all of which make for emotional campaign. [AMATO - comments on Soglin's record.] [SOGLIN - talks of pornography issue.] Soglin concentrates on campus, but Amato expects to cut into that area. [AMATO - says students' views different today than 4 years ago.] [SOGLIN - says 1 becomes part of establishment by taking on responsibilities like those of mayor.]
