Hunt Charles Town, W. Va. April 14, 1959 A Step In The/ Right Direction- IMr. Max Brown, Edi~r ,Spiri~ of Jefferson Cltarles Town, W. Va. Dear Mr. Brown: Much interest ~has been manifes ,ted regarding .the coming election Tuesday, April 21st when ,the City of C,harles Town seeks to extend its cooperate li,mits. After attending numerous meet ,ings and listening to discussions, it seems to me the advant@ges of belng incorporated in,to ,the town greatly overshadow any disadvan- tages connected with the issue. The Council has patiently point ed out ~hat by incorporating the proposed area ci,tizens in Chat lo- cality can expect much lower in- surance rates, more, police 'protec- tion, adequate street lighting, weekly garbage collections at $5.00 a year, Improved water service and much additional revenue to Che ,town. On ~he other hand what has the opposition to offer in .the way of ,a basic platform? Frankly it is a hard question to answer because no really valid reasons were even brought up in any meetings that I a tA~ended. I Charles Town `is to continue ,to grow and prosper it needs the ~roposed area and ~ice versa. A vote yes to incorporate is a vote cast for good community coop oration ~nd betterment of q.he com muni~ty as a whole. This is a good section of the state to live in. The citizens have an opportunity to make it a bet- ~ter one. James P. Morison Jefferson Avenue Charles Town, W. Va.
