Bill Floyd Ras Fco'l Beeoril
In Honse 01 Representatives Disavowing any runr>ors to the contrary Bill F'oyd. candidate for re-election to the Ho-.iie of Repre sentatives today stated that "he wa3 not aligned with any person or group in running for rc-tice tion." Floyd pointed to his own reccc· established during the six years he served as County Commissioner in Columbus and two years as Representative to the State Legis lature. "If I have to be aligned with any person and have my hands tied then I don't want to return to the House of Representatives," said the World War II veteran who served 44 months with the Army. Fast activities by Representa tive Floyd include the Grand Jury Bill which enabled Columbus r ν ί·ι stprt the Rotation Plan for Grand Juries in July of 1953. Too. he introduced a Bill which will μο into effect this year pro viding fer staggered terms for County Commissioners. "Tris plan will assure the Coun tv »if having seme experienced men on the Board of Commission ers at all times," commented Floyd in regards to the new Bill. Of or Bills introduced by Floyd on a local level included one which permitted the voters of Tabor City to elect five members instead of three to the Town Board. Ho also refused to intro duce a Bill which would permit a town within the county to vote separately from the County on the question of establishing whisVey stores. A Bill introduced by Floyd jointly with the Representative from Brunswick County prohibit ed fishing during the spawning season in a portion of the Wacca maw River. Too, the Bill eliminat ed the use of motor boats in the Waccamaw River during the spawning season. Although the Bill brought criti cism from some corners. Floyd said," I introduced the Bill at the request of a number of people who live in the vicinity of the rever. ! Personally, I know very little ι about fish or fishing, and my only I interest in this Bill was to serve the people of that vicinity." On a State level, Floyd has been very active in the House. Ho in troduced a Drainage Bill which J was passed on April 28, 1953. This measure prohibited people from placing obstructions in waterways 1 which would thereby destroy much farm land through inadequate drainage. Floyd supporteil the Adminis tration Program for schools and mental institutions and the Bills designed to promote Highway Saf ety including the Driver Training Bill. With regards to the Secrecy Law, Floyd stated. "I do not be lieve in secrecy in handling public business and will do my utmost to keep the people of Columbus County informed of the happen ings in the Legislature." Floyd's platform includes main taining good schools ;n Columbus County as well as promoting Driv er Training in every school. Hitting at the insurance com panies who cancel policies at a moment's notice. Floyd said he would continue to fight against this practice and would support a move which will improve the policies being written in this strte. Other planks of Floyd's plat form include: "I am for a State wide rufen n dum on the question of ABC Store and if elected will cast my vote for such a referendum. I believe the people of the state as a whole have a right to decide this ques tion." He favors right of franchise for these reaching the age of 18. His theory is that if a man is old enough to fight for his country he is old enough to vote in it. "I pledge to ilo all in my power to promote safety on our highways by strengthening laws to the point of further discouraging drunken and reckless driving which results in the destruction of life and propcry," said Floyd.
