They vitli others. 1 would rather not mve it and would try to increase the city income through other sources first," he said. The candidate would like to take a close look at the situation before making any lecisons to curtail services due ,o inflationary trends. "I can't see at this time where any specific cuts could be made." he said. He sees the city board as a policy making body. "The administration is with the city manager and his s t a f f . The board also serves as a guide and a check for the manager and his staff," he explained. Watklns does not favor development of new city services at this time; just'normal extension of present services to residents not now served or to new areas. "I don't think this is the time for any large expansion of city service. I don't think this would be advisable with the inflationary situation Mrs. Mills Plans To Return To Arkansas This Week live at 1417 Elmwood Drive. we have. If there were any services I would like to see expanded it would be the pickup of trash and garbage; but ] realize this has to be measurec _, in the light of economics Services can only be expandec . ' if we can afford them.- I think he city fundamentally is doing good job," he said. CONTRIBUTION Watkins thinks Fayetteville is an extraordinarily good place o live.

I think this quality of life is ased on the economic success of the area, and governmental stability of the city. The board can make a real' contribution to both the economic and political stability of the com munity by working together in a cooperative and encouraging way to face the problems we have," he said. He does not represent any special interests or have any pet projects. As a general platform he says he encourages a balanced economic growth for the community and would promote a stable, responsive city government. "I am not going to have any labels pinned on me. I will face problems which arise arid then determine my vote on what I consider common sense and fairness on the question. I am very independent and I Intend to remain that way," he said.
