“If you feel
you are too busy to take an interest in government . . . feel that
getting mixed up in politics is beneath your dignity or bad for
business, then at least take time for one thing. Teach your child to
count in foreign currency. They will need to know this with the
inheritance you are leaving them!”
This is the last issue of the newspaper before the
election of officials for the Town of Grantsville.
Ask yourselves a few questions as you prepare to
cast your ballot. These questions concern human kindness, character, and
efficient use of time and funds.
--First of all, is this person a kind person?
--Can they take part in controversial discussion
with dignity? No name calling, swearing, foul language or personal
animosity to another member?
--Are they honest in thought, speech and financial
--Would we allow our children to observe the
council meeting, if it was a class assignment?
--Will the elected officials be able to say, “I am
a member of Grantsville’s town council. I am proud of my town and proud
of the way I serve.”
The people chosen should be capable of representing
the citizens of Grantsville. Think of the responsibility in your hands
as you mark your ballot. We can keep Grantsville on the map as a
progressive, friendly place. We should be able to point to our officials
with pride and say, “These elected town officials are really conducting
matters in a way that represent me. I am proud of them. Decisions are
being made. Time is not wasted in bickering.”
Tuesday, June 14, will soon be here. Take pride in
casting a thoughtful vote, your vote! If you think your one vote doesn’t
make a difference, you have never been in bed with a mosquito!
The Chronicle expresses its appreciation to Beverly
Morford. Even though she was on the town council for just two sessions,
she acted as a representative of the people.
