I want io tell you thai if I am elected Mayor of Algona thai I intend to put just as much effort and hard work into the job as I have in making a successful business here over the past 30 odd years. I am now in a financial position where I feel I can handle a public office with a free mind. I wbuld work hard, for the future of Algona, and as mayor. I would always be open for suggestions and ideas for the betterment of our city. . • ' I am for having some outside industry locaif here in Algonai and I t believe we should siari right away, with a good sound program for-getting more industry interested in locating here. I jrni for good homes, and more of them, and I would like to see every working man own_his own home. • ..__ '_ .Because of my 34 years in the neighboring farm areas as a tiling and drainage contractor, I know hundreds of farmers, and I would work hard io see thai we kepi' the farmers as good friends for our town. We need ihe farmer's friendship, and I have always believed in being neighborly. I am also for city improvements, such as we have been having, and I would do all I could io see living conditions in our city get better and better, but I believe we should do all of this in a good business-like way, and watch our taxes carefully. As for ihe police department, there would be no replacements unless absolutely necessary, and I think Ira Kohl and company are doing a fine job in ihe fire department, and I would be for keeping it so. I would handle the Mayor's office in ihe fairest way possible, including ihe Mayor's court. If I do not get io see you before Election Day, I hope for your support.
