I am respectfully asking the public
for its support to reelect me to the
important office of City Comptroller
for the following reasons:
1. My Cash Basis plan which I
worked and fought for practically
single handed consistentlv and per
sistently for five years and which was
finally completed and put in opera
tion, will save the taxpayers millions
of dollars. This, I feel, should assure
me the support of every iair-mmded
2. I put into operation a plan
whereby the City discounts its bills
again saving thousands of dollars.
3. I have not permitted the expen
diture of public funds, or raising of
additional funds, except in accordance
with the strict interpretation of the
Charter, again saving hundreds of
thousands of dollars.
4. I am responsible for putting in
to effect the time check system, which
makes it possible for every city em
ploye to receive his wages or a part
of them at any time, thereby remov
ing the necessity for him to assign
any of his wages to loan sharks.
