Two years ago tlpe Hopipstcad Count]' Taxpayers' League recommended the salaries of the various county officers, bug-inning' August 1, 10JV2. 1 signed op and agreed to abide by this salary schedule, and have lived up to my agreement. Under this schedule, the salary of the assessor was fixed at $1800.00 a year, with $300.00 for necessary traveling expenses, which amounts, in all to $175.00 a month; and this is all I have drawn since August 1. 1932. Under the law the assessor's salary is fixed at $3000.00 a year, or $250.00 a month with expenses, and I could have drawn that amount, but I have lived up to my agreement and have drawn only $150.00 a month salary and $25.00 a month for traveling expenses, or $175.00 a month in all. ; dl un com an.... u ^^ keep your el- f»" *•« ' more than I ever can tell you—but she Isn't our own.

Under this .salary schedule as recommended by the League, the county clerk's salary was fixed at $1800.00 a year, with a salary of $1200.00 a year for his deputy, and $:H)0.00 additional as long as he is required to make the tax books. It is my understanding that the Taxpayers' League met recently and adopted the same schedule as was adopted in 1982, and that this League proposes to initiate an act fixing the salaries of the county officers according to the 1932 schedule. I ain willing and hereby agree, if I am elected clerk, to abide by said salary schedule an,d will only accept $1800.00 a year salary, with $800.00 additional as long as I am required to make the tax books, and that my deputy will receive $1200.00 a year, and this is all the salary I will accept, regardless of whether said act is initiated and adopted or not.
