new Robert H. Burkart Seeks Post Of Montgomery County Executive "The citizens of Montgomery County have seen at to provide for themselves, by Charter Amendment, the position of County Executive," a statement by Robert H. Burkan, independent candidate for the post, said. "This office offers an opportunity for service and is a challenge to the voters of the County in the selection of a qualified person to discharge the duties thereof. The opportunities for service to the person who holds the office challenges the imagination of anyone familiar with the problems of Montgomery County. "Growth is rewarding in itself but it presents problems which may not be ignored. Montgomery County has enjoyed, for the past decade, phenomenal growth at all levels of its structure--political, economic, population, wealth and, yes, even poverty. "Some of these areas of growth have been dealt with. We have met the challenge of expanding demands of education. We have built an enormous plant for the education of our children, adequately staffed our educational institutions and provided excellent, if not the best, equipment and supplies in this field. "There are other areas of government where we have failed utterly to meet the challenges of our growth. Our government structure has not been sirfficicnt to the challenge.- tt has been lacking in leadership. The office of County Executive is an answer to the crying need for leadership if the citiiens select the proper person to fill mis position," he said. "After weeks of deliberation and consideration of those candidates who have been most prominently mentioned as contenders for this high and responsible position, I have determined mat the electorate of Montgomery County deserve better than this crop of possible candidates," said Burkart. "Therefore, with all humility and an impelling desire to serve my fellow citizens, I have been persuaded by numerous friends and acquaintances, to offer my- selt as a candidate for election to the position of County Executive. I submit the following as a basis upon which I offer my candidacy. "I have been a registered Democrat in Montgomery County since 1932. Recently, I register- ed independent. It is my desire to be available for the voters choice in the general election, Novembers. "I am an independent candidate who cares and not a captive candidate who can be controlled," said Burkart. "The issues facing the people of Montgomery County seem to me, and to those fellow Coun- tians with whom I have had tts- cussions, to bet "(1) TAXATION -- The past four years have resulted in increased taxation both because of rate increases and increased assessments. There has been no economy in public spending. A responsive government must spend judiciously and tax in accordance with reasonable and bearable levels that reflect the ability and consent of the citizens. "(2) HOUSING-- Montgomery County is^ known as a rich county but its prosperity is dependent upon diverse economic opportunity for all levels of its citizens. We have seen the housing market restricted to the higher cost houses and public supported and subsidized housing for the very poor.

We can ill afford the luxury of expensive education for our young people if we export their knowledge and creative ability through lack of reasonable housing for their family formations.
