I desire to thank the people of Lau
rens County for the support given me
! in the recent Primary Election, and
! while the task before me, in view of
I the recent Hoods, seems stupendous, I
; am ready to give the county the best
I service that I may be capable of in the
rebuilding of our bridges.
On behalf of the County Board of
I Commissioners will ask that, where
smaller bridges arc down and roads
j washed away, the citizens of the com
munity will volunteer and repair such
places as this will enable the county
forces to be kept at more important
work. I would ask this in view of the
fact that most, of our road money for
the year has been expended, and .ve
therefore rely upon the public spirit of
our citizens to assist us as far as possible
in repairing these damages.
