WAGHER FOR Mayor I am doing my besf to get around and try to talk personally wilh the good citizens of our town before Election Day on November B. It is a lot of ground to cover, and in case the lime does run short 1 am printing these few words to ask for your support when you vote, and to ask if you will, to speak a good word for me with the other voters. I want to tell you that if I am elected Mayor of Algona that 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 would 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 locate here 5n Algona, and I believe we should start right away, with a good sound program for getting more industry interested in locating here. I 'am 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 to see that we kept the farmers as good friends for our town. We need the 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 to 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 the police department, there would be no replacements unless absolutely necessary, and I think Ira Kohl and company are doing a fine job in the fire department, and I would be for keeping it so. I would handle the Mayor's office in the fairest way possible, including the Mayor's court. If I do not get to see you before Election Day, I hope for your support. Thank you very 'much.
