Having been for almost ten years in tho/sorvlce of the City during which time T have hold the offices of Assistant City Engineer, Acting City ICngineer, Building Inspector and Assessor, I must stand on my past record as a clean, competent and businesslike executive head. I look upon the water problem as one of great seriousness and 1 feel that every effort should bo mado to reduce waste so as lo bring consumption down to its normal level and to put the charges on a more equitable basis. Everything possible should be done to Improve our streets and some use should be made ot tho material at our disposal with a view to eventually reducing the maintenance cost. As most of our Public Works aro financed by thirty year bonds It is imperative that these Public Works be kept in running order at the minimum of expense during tho life of the bonda.v 1 believe tho principle of having full and detailed reports and rocommendations submitted to tho Commissioners as a Couticil should be jnoro strictly followed so that publicity may be given those, as early as possible before resolutions are passed. It elected, I should expect to supervise the AssBsament department and so assist in tho 'Work of economy. 1 have no interests outside the City and will devote my whole time lo Iho affairs of the City and if elected t will carry to Iho Public Works department the same energy and work that has characterized my record in the past. Having acted as your City Engineer before, having soerj the larger portion of tho Public Works constructed in the City and In addltiou having a thorough knowledge of the City's problems and finances I claim your vote and iutluouoe.
