Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 7, 1915, Lethbridge, Alberta frAGE SPt THE ELECTORS i Leiiibi-idgc. Albertu, Dec. 7th, 1915 'To The Electorate, City of Lethbridgc Dear Sir or Madam: As it is liecesssury that mi election should take place..on December 13th, 1915. for the selection of a Commis- sioner ol Public, Ulililies lo serve the City for thu yeai-s 1010, 1917 and 191S. 1 take this opportunity of presenting to those raav not be able lo-altcnd Hie public meetings, the fact that having served the city in .tin- above capacity, for the past two years, and having gained such experience as leads me to be- lieve 1 am now more capable lo serve you than when first elected. 1 am a candidate for re- election and am prepared to ac- cept this Commissionership, should a majority of the Citi- zens desire it. Being unfortunately, a human have made mistakes in the past. Ymrwill, I believe credit me with the. same sin- cere desire to give the City my best services, as you believed 1 possessed when first elected. Out of mistakes lessons have been learned which will be val- uable guides in the conduct of my department ifflhe future, and ll-e experience gained during the two very strenuous years of municipal life now closing, is my strongest claim for your fur- {her support. In order to properly present my own claims, it is a so nec- rssaiT that I present in some measure, the claims which Com- mission Form of "Government has earned through the exper- ience of the City under this Form of. Government since its in- ception. Tins because. I have shared in that government and feel that, in my humble way, I have-influenced it. Under Com- mission Form of Government there has resulted greater pub- licity with reference to the City's affairs, and greater knowledge on Uie part'of the public as a result. While the Commissioners have directed general policies, yet the public have been directly consulted with reference to important matters, such as assess- ment, and estimates of civic expenditures. There has been effected a reduction of approximately between the es- timates of 1913 and 1915. Further, the Commissioners were through strictest economy to actually save on the estimates of 1914 the sum of approximately Today, the city is being directed by men giving their full time and experience to its affairs, instead" of by men whose time and interests were largely occupied outside of the city's business. Without indulging in tiresome details, 1 do wish to present lo the public the following facts with reference to the operation of the department actually under my direction. Through the practise of the most rigid economy consistent with service, the Street Hallway system has been placed in a position which will show an approximate profit aver the estimated operating ex- penses for the current year of This in spite of the fact that traffic receipts to the end of November, showed a de- crease- of approximately as compared' with the first eleven months of 1914. In this connection I mifclit menUon for the encouragement of.the public, that, although there is a large decrease for the eleven months, there has been a material in- crease over the figures for 1914, for the months of August, Sep- tenilf.T, October and November, which points to a revival ofj Iraffic, which will improve the situation of the Street Railway very much if continued.. Although the total figures are not at present available, yet I tan definitely state that the expenses of the City. Electrical De- partment for the year 1915 will be reduced approximately as compared with the expenses for 1914. For the year 1914, taxes to the extent oi over were charged to the Electri- THE LETHBRIDGE DAILY HERALD TUESDAY, DECEMBER 7, 18J.S We have a full line of these Chocdlales fresh from the factory.

Today, there is an average of forty-seven. This speaks for it- self. I do not wish lo burden the public with unnecessary details, but I do wish to stale that I enter this election contest with the belief that there is nothing in connection with the operation of my department which I would wish to hide, from the public, and I invite the most thorough examination into all my acts by Jhe on-the platform, as opportunity will present in this short campaign, or in a personal way. Should the Citizens of this city entrust io Commissioner of Public Ulililies for the coming three pledge myself to give in the iuiure, as I have in the past, the best of my experience, knowledge and ability in carrying out the duties of my office. With full appreciation of the support which has been ac- corded me in the past, I leave the decision in your hands, Yours faithfully, ARTHUR REID.
