Manager form of government is far less distressing than the pathetic turnout atthe polls by Fewer than 5000 votes City Manager Plan was voted out by 135 votes with a total of 5095 votes That was asorry showing But at that it was rhore than 100 above the Tuesday total s In Mason City there are approximately 14000 eligible voters Where were the 9000 men and women who didnt go to the trouble Tuesday of making known their preference on this vital question TTERE was a proposition involving our daily and police protection sidewalks and streets the water in our homes But only one out of three could be stirred into action It would have taken less than a half hour for the aver age voter The heart of the matter is that a scant onefifth of our eligible 2688 who voted made a vast ly important decision for the whole community It was GOVERNMENT BY DEFAULT at the local level A MERICAN democracy Has two principal distinguishing marks One is RULE BY THE MAJORITY The other is KESPECT FOR THE RIGHTS OF THE Tuesdays election here was not so much a repudiation of the City Manager form of gqyeiuiment as it was a flagrajlt disregard for the essence of our way of life Were not getting RULE BY THEMAJORITYfor tlie plain but shocking reason that the majority ourpeople couldnt be aiousedto the performance of their most basic duty of citizenship IE 60 per cent of pur eligible voters who neglected to go to the polls TuesdayJiaye surrendered their right to raise a voice in protest against unsatisfactory government in the years which lie immediatelyahead However bad our local government mightbe itcould be no worse thanthe performance of the 9000 adult citizens who failed to exercise their voting franchise In the face of a call to speak up they remained silent Cllr ClobeGiiiette Cllr
