LETHA ACTKINSON With the growth of Ukiah all city facilities will have to expand such as sewer, water and electricity in a "businesslike manner ^o taxpayers can absorb it." Actkinson is seeking election to one of the two city council seats open in the March 7 election. She has been a real estate broker since 1951 and is owner' of O'Laughlin Realty. She moved to the county in 1945 and has lived in the city for 26 years. She is married to Don Actkinson, who works with her in the realty firm and has six step-children. She said she is "known to be an holiest and sincere person and not ope to bend to please any certain entity. "To be a successful businessperson you have to be aware of the cost of taxes and economy and the problems of growth." She said housing should be concentrated in the city where services are available and not take up outer agricultural land. Actkinson lists on her financial disclosure statements equity in fiv^ apartment buildings in city valued at more than $100,000 and two buildings under llOOjOOO. She also lists the most extensive assets in addition ^o the property holdings of any of the seven candidates to file, with ^ total of approximately' $452,995. She expressed concern about city proposals to downzone in certain afe^as saying "that would spifead the population into agricultural areas." She says thp geothermal question Uiat will be before the voters on the ballot in March is vdry important but she added she has not investigated the question thoroughly enough yet to make ' a recommendation.

Neighborhood charm (like England's) results from individual perseverance in the pursuit of conxmunity beauty. Many of our most cruel critics have escaped their urban hot-and-cold ninning cockroach environment to transfer to our mountain "Eden" but they don't want to share it with families who have everi worse conditions to escape. Once relocated, the critics' total contribution to the progress of UWah has been an ability to punch a typewriter, spell, and drip snobbish sarcasm. Not for them is attendance at public meetings where it takes courage to voice controversial opinions and' follow through on vital issues even though their neighbors may not speaik to them for a year.
