"the people of Brown County responded most generously to my campaign two years ago when 1 had an opponent and when the area was hew to the district," Burleson said in his opening statement. Brown County was placed in the 17th District by thfe legislature in 1966, and he began officially representing it at the beginning of 1967. The 17th Congressional District is now composed of 31 Counties, covering approximately 30.000 square miles. Within this area live about 440,0001 people. I "With this tremendous area, 1 and the fact that the Congress, is in session almost continuous- 1 ly, it Is pretty difficult to see and know people as I think their representatives in the congress should," Burleson said in his comments. "I believe it is incumbent Upon a congressman to know people and that they know him, to have the best representation. This is fundamental to our system," he said. In his statement, Burleson said, "During my tenure of office I have followed two guiding principles—first, to know the views of my constituents and reflect their sentiments to the greatest degree possible in my acions in the Halls of Congress. Second, to inform and advise as closely as I can on those issues which affect our district, our state and our nation." Burleson termed his approach to government as one of "common sense," gained through the years of public service. "I have tried to see that the people's tax money is spent as wisely and as judiciously as you would have spent it had you been in my place," he said. Burleson is among the senior members of the U. S. House of Representatives in point of service. His seniority has carried him to the chairmanship of the potent House Administration Committee, and to the second position to the chairman on ill I. til IvJrf ivift/nj l»eiB , My. f Ad iiffWIv ftwrftfng & WOOD PUSUISHINO CO., f. 0. §6* i tin. irownwood, Ti*M «W1. it iiwuwtf woobsoft, AK FISftlft.

Burleson serves on two important joint committees formed from senior members of the house and senate, as chairman of one and vice chairman of the other. Burleson is a former county attorney and county judge of Jones County. He was appointed an FBI agent, and served in a number of assignments over the U.S. He resigned from the FBI to join the Navy in World War II, and saw duty in both the Atlantic and the 'Pacific. Burleson ended his formal announcement by saying, "Although not having opposition in this year's election, it is my hope to visit my constituency as opportunity affords. The congress being in session at this time and expected to be long after the primary election, there will be little time to leave du- ies in Washington. I expect, however, to get back home at short intervals to do the best I can in seeing my friends and to make new ones."
