Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 2, 1912, Lethbridge, Alberta y, Dcccinlit'r 2, 1912 TTTT; rE iE DAILY To the Electors of the City of Lethbridge Wo are a candidate Cor the office of Mayor of our City because tlio citixens under "the most; trying terms that a plebiscite vote couiu be taken on three distinct occasions pro- nounced themselves, by a laro-e majority in favor of STRAIGHT'Commission Clovbni- incnt and because at the last two municipal elections practically every member of tho. Council wiis pledged to give tho City commis- sion form of government; at the earliest pos- sible moment. Tho present council practi- cally ignored the plebiscie and the individual pledges by only beginning to-consider the JVew Charter at the last moment and then throwing up its hands on the psendo excuse that it did not know what the people wanted: Wejiavo the impression that this is only a ruse to sidetrack the question of Commission Gov- ernment. This is not a personal matter with us. We have no inurbane feeling towards anyone in this connection and are only endeavoring to further the interest of the city as see the necessity for a change in the System of City Government. We shall be glad to meet and discuss our views with any ratepayer at his or her con-; venj.ence.. The door of our homo is open to all at all times to anyone who wishes to see us in respect to onr platform or any other matter. stand for a Police Commission, .as advocated by the city press, composed of the Mayor, the District Judge, and the Police Magistrate. stand for BOOSTING and are strongly opposed'to BOOMING- our city. stand for progressive, but economi- cal government. stand for a close scrutiny of all lin- ancial-affairs and complete publicity in all accounting in all departments', independent- ly, and in relation to each other. stand for Commission Government as it is practically in effect today and giving splendid results in the city of'Des Moines, la., with such few alterations as would better suit Lethbridge conditions. Briefly it is as follows: Three independent commissioners or superintendents elected directly by the people, subject to the EE- CALL. The three commissioners jointly, are an. advisory committee to each one of the three departments. Por Legislative purposes the three commissioners automatically be- come a board of aldermen. All legislation is sublet to the INITIATIVE and tbe REFEE- Under these conditions the rate- payers have control all the time, whereas- in the Aldermanic System the ratepayers li'avc absolutely no say or control excepting on election day. By this system wo have direct responsibility fixed on each commissioner singly and on the three jointly, so that there can be no "craw-fishing" or shunting blame. If there is any virtue in the Aldermanic System, we retain enough of it to let these virtues have full sway. INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER''c6.
