Aside from what little money there Is In it, which may or
may net defray my expenses, my reasons for seeking this office
are as follows:
(6) To advance the cause of education by securing for our
teachers a salary for twelve months of the year, not just
nine. A good teacher's job does not end when school goes
out. In addition to innumerable details that must be seen
to bef ore and after a school term, there is the teacher's
dignity and respect that must be maintained twelve
months of the year.
(1) To work to bring jobs to Letcher County; jobs that our
people will be proud to hold. Jobs for our fathers and"
young men and women who are now having to leave in
order to earn a decent living. Jobs with real wages to '
feed, clothe and educate our children.
(7) To insure to the tax payers of this County the greatest
return possible on every tax dollar that goes to Frankfort.
(2) To see that the families living in the heads of- the ' '
hollows, branches and creeks have a good road to get out
to the stores and shops to do their trading and attend our '
schools. The man up the hollow has been neglected, ' he'
does not have the means or the desire to speed to Lexing- ton or Louisville for his business.
(3) To streamline our tax collection laws by, among q- ther things, stopping the practice of reading off the names
of those who cannot pay their taxes, to the public in front
of the Courthose door and publishing their names in a news-- i
paper. It Is an archaic law and all it does Is embarrass
and shame our people, who for some reason or other, can- '
not pay their taxes on time.
