“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!”

                                                                  --Willard Wilson

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 matters?

--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.
