Those <br />of the future may be more im- <br />portant. Because of our transi- <br />tioning from "a struggling child to <br />a mature adult" these are critical <br />years. Your votes are vital to <br />both the quality and the breadth <br />of support of your next Council. <br />Let's demonstrate what local <br />government really means by citi- <br />z.en participation. <br />73J67~ <br />2 <br />all use an alphabetical listing of <br />names which is rotated between <br />precincts. All ballots within one <br />precinct are the same. Inasmuch <br />as our Town has only one polling <br />place we have only one rotation. <br />Candidates agreed to hold a <br />drawing to determine which name <br />would appear first in the rotation, <br />as this gave every candidate an <br />equal opportunity to be at the <br />top of the ballot. The drawing <br />was held at the Town Council <br />meeting on December 27, 1973, <br />and the name drawn was that of <br />Barbara von Ammon. So the al- <br />phabetical rotation will begin <br />with von Ammon followed by <br />Wainwright, Adams, Baltz and so <br />on through the alphabet. <br />Be sure you don't vote for more <br />than seven candidates in the Pri- <br />mary. If you do, your ballot will <br />be voided, and none of your votes <br />will count. <br />TOWN ENGINEER <br />Charles Atkinson, has tackled <br />many Town engineering prob- <br />lems since his appointment last <br />June. He is the first staff engi- <br />neer for the Town.
