I assure you that I will actively —not passively—work with the Chamber of Commerce, other civic organizations and all interested citizens of BIytheville to bring more industry here and put steadier buying power in the reach of the average man. 2, AIR BASE Reactivation of the Air Base will give BIytheville the "shot in the arm" it needs. Thti we all greatly desire and will do our best to accomplish. But I fully realize that decision on reactivation will be made by our Armed Forces without regard to who is serving as Mayor of BIytheville. But Aside From Reactivation, If and When It Comes, I have these Definite Views: •1 I will have an independent firm of auditors make an audit of the Air Base ' —PHYSICAL PROPERTIES as well as funds—from the time the City took control to date and publish this audit for every Citizen to see. O If the Armed Services do not intend to reactivate the Base, then I will use ' every means at my command to get the "recapture" clause of the present agreement eliminated so that we can offer Industry permanent assurance in connection with Air Base facilities. O Specific authority, by legislative act, has existed for several years by which ' the City could remove the Air Base from politics. ! will recommend that the City Council take advantage of this so-far unused authority and create a separate Airport Commission and remove it entirely from politics. This Commission will be composed of substantial Citizens, not holding political office, ' and including men with experience in aviation. Complete monthly reports will be made public. 3. STREET IMPROVEMENTS Street improvements will be made and will be divided fairly between the several Wards and on the basis of greatest need. The repair and maintenance of present streets will not be overlooked. 4. THE SEWER SYSTEM Improvement must be made in our present sewer system. This must be done at economically as possible. Our sewage problem can be solved in a more economical and practical way than yet proposed. I shall recommend re-examination of fhe sewer survey with the view to making our actual needs fit better info our ability to pay. You will be given the cost estimate as concerns your property directly for your consideration. 5. COMPLETE INFORMATION AND YOUR VOTE Full publicity—both as to the advantages and disadvantages of all proposals will be provided. All vital issues will be submitted to the Citizens.
