Don't take your vote too the opportunity to be heard and in lightly, it is probably one of the f a c t many of the suggestions most important votes you will cast brought to us by these very people~ and will have a great effect on the have been incorporated in our plans. We have asked the advise of many of our citizens and in most cases it was given in a public spirited and unselfish manner. As a matter of fact I have found the majority of the people of Ava- lon to have a sincere interest in Avalon's future. But I would also like to point out that while the Council has been struggling to do a good job there were those who were always trying to instill a bit of doubt as to the integrity of the Council. One citizen went to the expense of asking for a Grand Jurv inquiry. I don't believe that the person thought that there was any misconduct of office but it might possibly arouse suspicion among our citizens. The same tactics have been used in'fostering a "city hate company" program. future of Avalon and Catalina. Mr. Wrigley believes in its future. Your present Council believes in its fu- ture. We hope that you do too. If at any ~time I served the Com- pany it was with the sincere thought that in doing so I was serving the best interest of the community and the majority, of its tax payers. That is what your Council has been trying to do, something con- structiw by cooperating with the towns largest busines~ I feel that this~makes sense and I am sure that the majority of our residents agree that we would find it diffi- cult to get along without our larg- est taxpayer. But unfortunately, this cooperat/on has left us wide open to attacks which it seem have become very popular, of the little guy fighting the big guy, whether the p~tnciple involved makes sense or not.

Rather, just enough information is gathered together to make up a story to heckle those who are sincerely try- ing to do a good job and, because they are honest and sincere and are not thinking in devious ways for their own particular benefit, are at a great disadvantage at the var- ious Council meeting~. Let me say that these people who do this heckling are in a small mi- nority. Unfortunately, they are the only ones who dare to be heard. I think that they can be described as "smart alecs" who are acting to the ultimate detriment of the big bulk of sober minded people. These and mar}y other reasons are why it is so important that the present Council be kept intact. varions underprivileged peoples of the earth.
