Lt- I i CO I u i c i w 11 1 children, Daniel Trasak Jr., Elsie Reid, wife, Mrs. Maria Lanza. Executrix, wife. Roberta Knowlton, has been informed of the facts on several -occasions, she neglects to tell the voters that errors made by the State Office of Local Government in Trenton caused the budget hearings to be moved up to the last day in which they could legally be held, thus leaving no period for amendment. "The City Council and the Finance Officer's personnel had their work finished well in advance and had scheduled a public hearing, leaving sufficient time for amendment. 'Budget Sunday' "My opponent also neglects to tell the public that there are public hearings held on every item of the budget before it is introduced on 'Budget Sunday' and departmental hearings are held earlier in the year. I have, during my terms in office, supported public hearings where those people affected by any city action can be heard. By way of example, examine my record in the institution of the Urban Renewal and Model Cities programs and the proposed widening of Woodland Avenue. "I have actively sought and lecured for Plainfield new rata- bles by way of business induced to move to this city. I have supported zoning reforms so that our tax base can be broadened. I have supported a sound investment policy under which our surplus funds can be invested in the . highest yield securities permitted by law. j "My opponent, on the other! hand, issues bold statements that the city's funds have been left iininvested and makes veiled insinuations of conflicts of interest. Any amount of checking on her part would have revealed the untruth of her statements concerning city investments and I challenge her to point to one vois during my term on the council where I have not disqualified myself if there was any possibility of my law office reaping any benefit from my action on the council. Abstained from Voting "Specifically, when the Sand-ford Avenue site was voted upon during the Senior Citizens Housing debates and my office repre sented an estate owning one of the affected properties, I ab stained from voting and took no part in the debate. My views on Senior Citizens Housing, however, I believe were made clear by my efforts to find compromise sites and my subsequent votes. "I am mv own man. I am not indebted to any man or organ ization in the City of Plainfield. Where I disagree with my Republican colleagues on the council, I vote as my conscience dic tates. Where I disagree with the present administration, I say so. "I have been asked to repudi ate past administrations. Refus ing to do this, I have been accused of being governed by them. I believe we must draw upon the experience, accom plishments and even the errors of those who have been in office If elected, I will make my own judgments, but I will not limit my advisors to those who have shunned or failed to obtain public office. "Lastly, I call upon the citi zens of Plainfield, Republican, Democrat and Independent, to support me in my effort to prove that representative government can work in our city. I pledge, as I have stated throughout my campaign, to provide the city with responsible government, responsive to the people, presenting realistic programs for Plain-field." husband, Robert Glassner.

Nulty said the cocaine was found on a man he identified as Bernard Manzor of Santiago, Chile. The three other men were identified as Louis Roman, Louis Alvean and Jose Arays Araya. Nulty said Manzor was arrested on the Hoboken water front Tuesday by two customs agents after a chase. He said the cocaine was hidden in a Chapter to Hear Talk by Author WESTFIELD Harry Devlin, Mountainside artist- author, will address the Col onial Westfield Chapter of The Questers at 9:30 a.m. Monday at the home of Mrs. William E. Rettig, 990 Woodmere Drive. Variance Challenged ELIZABETH Fourteen Westfield residents, joined together as the Stanley Oval Association, filed suit in Superior Court yesterday seeking to nullify a variance for construction of a medical office building. Devlin will discuss his book,1 Defendants are Marcelia To Grandfather's House We Hall, owner of the property at Go" which deals with the history and styles of domestic architecture, including several area examples. He will autograph copies of his book to be made available at the meeting by the Town Book Store of Westfield. 547 E. Broad St., and the West- field Board of Adjustment. A medical office building is located on the lot, which has a frontage of 198 feet. The owner, parking problems. on sept. 16, was granted avariance from a requirement that lots have a frontage of 100 feet, making possible a subdivision of the lot. A second medical office building is planned for the vacant portion. Through attorney William B. Butler of Westfield, the association claims no hardship was shown by the applicant. It claims a second building will increase traffic hazards and Can't find what you're looking for? Courier-News Want Ads will help you find it.
