URGING HOWARD TO MAKE THE RACE FOR COUNTY JUDGE A Tax Payer Endorsing The Breckenridge News in Soli citing Howard For County TO THE CITIZENS OF BRECKINRIDGE COUNTY: In last week's issue of The Breck enridge News there appeared an arti cle relative to the candidacy of Jesse M. Howard for County Judge. To this comment I wish to make a few sug gestions. Being an interested citizen and tax payer of this county, I want to insist and implore the tax payer to solicit and encourage Jesse Howard to make this race. No man stands higher as a citizen, no man within our borders is better adapted and qualified for this office than Mr. Howard. We need an experienced business man who has proven his ability by his works. A glimpse of the farms owned and con trolled by Jesse Howard will convince you of his success as a live and pros perous farmer and business man. No reflection is intended upon our present county officials. The records disclosed their actions. The taxes are higher each year, no improvements in roads, and I understand salaries of officials have been increased and no better service has been rendered. Too much politics has been engendered for the good of our county. Let's substi tute a real business administration for the experiences of our present and past. Jesse Howard has every ear mark of a progressive business man. He is a farmer, who has made every dollar of his money by his own efforts. He is not an office seeker, nor will he consent to make this race unless urged by the good business citizens of our county who arc willing to place busi ness and economical management of our affairs above petty politics and extravagance. Mr. Howard hails from one of the most prominent Republican families of our county. He is a Democrat, but not a partisan. Women will support him men will vote for him. Republi cans and Democrats cannot afford not to boost him. This is our chance for a real business administration All we need is his consent to make this race. He can and will take the measure of any individual who opposes him. Respectfully, Tax Payer, CLOVERPORT BOY SUPT. OF BANNER SUNDAY SCHOOL IN CLEVELAND.
