A Statement By Carol Hoyt A.s a candidate for re-election a.s Commissioner of Finance for the City of lola, I feel that the citizens of Ida should know how I stand on various matters of importance now facing the city officials and the public. It has come I to my attention that I have been ^misquoted on several occasion.'^, with ;the result that my attitude on city affairs is greatly misunderstood by vsome of the voters. At this time I have completed almost three years of service in the office to which I seek re-election; so I feel qualified to make statements and pledgies which I know can be carried out. I seek re-election at'the urgent request of dozens of friends and taxpayers, because of my record as Finance Commissioner during these three years. Primarily my campaign for re-election is based on this record. Any voter may check my statements by making inquiry at the city office, as all city affairs are open to public inspection. Except for the citizens who make up our city, the greatest asset lola has is its municipally owned utilities. The possibilities of building a larger and better city through the successful operation of the.se utilities has not been appreciated by a great many people in the past. Legally, gas, water or electric departments cannot be owned by a city if operated at a loss, so I am in favor of fixing a rate for these services that will place each department on its own feet, permitting the city to retain ownenship of the.se utilities for the benefit of the people of Tola. Perhaps you do not know that the state liws stipulate that any public utility owned by a town or city must be sold if it is continually operated at a loss. I am definitely opposed to establishing utility rates .so low that the sale to a private corporation of any department I (gas, electricity or water) can be forced. This can be accomplished if the rates are ^not high enough to operate the department without loss. During my term of office, the city tax rate has been reduced from $1.98 per $100.00 of assessed valuation to, 75c. This reduction in rate has been rnade in .spite of the fact that during the three years I have been in office the as.sessed value of property in lola on which we may levy a tax has been reduced over $1,100,000.00, or over 20 per cent. This means that where, three years ago we assessed the taxpayers $19.80 per $1,000.00 for the expense of running the city government, we taxed them this year only §6.00. This has meant a large saving to every citizen of lola- who owns a piece of property, or a house full of furniture, or even an automobile. Does anyone •within the city recall another three-year period during which the lola city tax was reduced a similar amount? Our accomplishment in this' respect has attracted national attention. With the 1930 tax, $106,291.74 was raised to carry on our city government, not including paving a.4.sessments, etc., but with the 1932 tax only $3i;687.50 was raised for this purpose. The bonded' indebtedness of ;the city on April 1, 1930, was $503,494.03; on January 1, 193.3. it was $310,145.08. and on December 31, 1933, it will be $251,.036.61. Even though we have asked the citizens of lola for much less tax money than before, we have carried on our city government as usual, have put'a stop to increasing indebtedness and, indeed, have almost cut it in half, have placed our gas, water and electric departments in better shape than they •were, have increased our annual depreciation allowance on these three departments, and have .spent about $6,000.00 a year for the last two years in Jabor alone in the replacing of gas mains for the benefit of the unemployed of Iqla and the city as well. This record clearly shows my attitude on economy and efficiency in government and I feel it is much stronger than any campaign promise in this respect. My only per-sonal desire for re-election is to continue this program. I regret that my attitude on utility rates ha.s bfeen misunderstood. Instead of being opposed to reduced rates, I am very; anxious to see the time when lola will have the lowest rates of any city in the middle west, and firmly believe this will soon be the case. I- have never wanted the utility rates reduced at the expense of the taxpayer, and do not at this time, but I believe that within a short ,time a large reduction can be made in the utility rates if the present program is continued. It is my hope to remain in office another term, as I am confident that within two years at least we can have not only a lower utility nUe, but a city practically tax free as well. We are now working on .some matters that may make it po.s- sible to accomplish this within a year. Our utility rates are now much below the average, but when we get them down to the lowest of any competitive city, and also get the taxes almost eliminated we will then be in a position to .attract new industries and new residents as well. This will help . every laborer, property owner, and merchfint in the. city.. I am not a "wa^e cutter." By that I mean that I do not believe that the only way to run an organization economically is by exjiecting the em­ ployes to work for the least amount for which they can be secured. I be'^ lieve in paying a living wage'. Reasonable wage reductions are expected undeij present conditions, and mo.st_ of the city employes have had two cut.s.; The city wage scale should not be reduced further at thi.s' time, but the efficiency of the employes should be watched continually.' I am filUy aware of unemployment conditions in lola, and have always done my .share as a citizen to help in this respect. The cityi should co-operate to relieve this condition, and I am in favor of continuing the policy of allowing the unemployed to work 'ioiit utility bills. I am al.so in favor of creating any new work that will give • employment \vhen it can be done with .some benefit to the city. Signed, . • . CAROL HOYT, Candidate for Re-election City Commissioner of Finarice. (Political Advertising.)
