Harlem Avenue PHONE AHEAD FOR FAST SERVICE FOREST PARK REVIEW, WEDNESDAY MARCH 3, 1971, PAGE 3 Lorry Kaercher Your Editor Saysr 'Now that the primary votes have been counted and filed away (wherever primary votes are filed away) all eyes are now focused on the -grand finale of April 20th. Within the next few days or maybe it has happened already, various tickets or teams will be formed In a combined effort to win the election. Then there are those who will remain Independent. In either case, both will have justifiable and concrete reasons for running as they choose. Now it behooves all candidates, whether as a team or an an independent to re-analyze each and every precinct, re-count noses as to where to garner more votes than In the primary. Complacency is one word to be'omitted in the thoughts of all candidates. In the words of the late and great Vlnce Lombard!, "Whether it be sports, politics or business, the one who exerts that 'second effort' is the one who will come out on top." Four years ago inthe commissioner's race, a candidate who finished fourth in the primary, did not garner enough votes to finish in the same position in April. When all the votes were counted, the political aspirant finished 6th in the finals. The candidate holding down the sixth position after the primary, moved up Into the fourth spot and victory. Eight years ago, a candidate who finished in fifth place in the primary for commissioner, was the number one. vote getter and the top man when all the votes were counted in the following April election. At that same time, the third place candidate in the primary finished fifth in the finals. As in the primary, it now is adamant the voter choose their candidate according to their qualifications. JJ£t' by how many votes they received in the primary. The voters of Forest Park owe that to the candidates, to themselves and to the community. There is nothing wrong with voting for the same candidate again or deciding to vote for another. ID either case, it is perfectly all right if it is done in an intelligent manner.
