Clarke's AN APPEAL To the Citizens of Connellsville In respect to taxes there are two classes of citizens, those who pay and those who do not The latter class is divided into three groups those unfortunates who are willing but financially unable to pay, those who are careless, and those who deliberately evade payment To these two iatter groups, this appeal is specifically directed. Have you ever thought that in failing to bear your share of the local tax burden you are unfair to those who pay their taxes, and that while possibly you own an automobile and enjoy many other luxuries and pleasures, many of those who pay are sacrificing these very things in order to live up to their conception of good citizenship? Is your standard lower than theirs? Do you want them to help bear your burden? The payment of taxes is a part of the responsibility of citizenship, a duty which should not, and from now on, must not be evaded in Connellsville The taxing authorities (The City Council, the Board of School Directors, and the Board of County Commis- s'oners) are pressing me for larger tax collections, and have criticized me for not using the means provided by law for forcing collection So it is squarely up to me to collect from those who are delinquent Therefore, notice is hereby given to delinquents in the two groups mentioned above that their taxes MUST be pa'd I hope it will not be necessarv to compel payment in a single case, but those who persist in evading payment are forcing the embarrassment of legal collection upon themselves I know that most of you are going to pay promptly and cheerfully Respectfully, C.
