PUBLISHED EVERY THURSDAY BY THE JEFFERSON PUBLISHING CO INC. 210 North George St. - Charles To~ W, Va~ - Zip Code 25414 ' Seeond Class Postage Paid At Charles Town Postoffice NATIONAL NEWSPAPER BROWN, MANAGER -- DON RENTCH, NEWS EDITOR THURSDAY, JUNE 6, 1968 MAYOR NICHOLAS CARSON Monday night marked the end of an era, and also a political record unequalled in Charles Town, and possibly in all of W st Virginia," when Nicholas Carson, who has served as Mayor of Charles Town for the past 20 years, administered tile oath of office to Donald C. Master, who won election to the office of Mayor in Charles Town over Carson. This act brought to an end, at least for the time being, the long, color- ful and productive political career of Nick as he is always referred too by his legion of friends and acquaintances. And naturaIly it was a nostalgic occasion for "Nick" as he had been "Mr. Mayor" of Charles Town for so long it was hard for him and those in attendance to realize that he was doing the sweaxing in, instead of him being given the oath of office. But this friendly, and humble man performed the official ceremony in true "Nick" style. And wound up his farewell remarks with full assurance to his successor, that his support and cooperation is available to the new Mayor and the mem- bers of the entire city administration flow and in the future if they are needed. For :he ::Ca e esf "Nick" been a fine public se wan "n s t te,and ha has been a good Mayor. Since taking over the top municipal office in Charles Town on June 1, 1948, he has devoted hours of his time, talent and energies to the cam'ying on of civic and municipal matters without fanfare, but certainly with a sense of community and personal pride. "Nick" has always felt that what he did was for the good of Charles Town and it's citizens. And as he said in his remarks of appreciation to the people of Charles Town for their long and loyal support over the past 20 years, "It has been a most gratifying experience to have had the confidence and support of so many people for such a long period of time." "Nick" is certainly one of the finest examples of American success not only as a business man, but as a civic and com- munity leader. He has been a humble man who started out at the bottom of the ladder as a poor immigrant boy,'and pulled himself up by the bootstraps to prominence, both locally and state-wide. He has most certainly been good for the com- munity and throttgh his leadership and efforts has made the community good for it's residents and indeed all residents of Jefferson County. And while "Nick," and the city administration he headed did not accomplish all of the municipal improvements and goals they andoubtedly would have to because the limited financial resources avail l,umerous major important chan es were brought" 'about in Charles Town dur- ing his 20 years as Mayor. Among them wel the new street- lighting system; a municipally owned and operated water system; the initiation of plans for an adequate and modern sewer system for the town ; expansion and modernization of the facilities and equipment of the city's police department u dm of t 1 ',t the p-gra " g he c'ty s garbage and s reet departments and their facilities and the employment of a superintendent of municipal works; and a host of repairs and changes in the town's traffic lighting system and municipal streets. All of these show clearly there has been improvements, progress and change. And all have helped to make Charles Town a better and more progressive community in which to live. All of these also certainly substantiate the statement "Nick" has not only been a good Mayor, but a working Mayor" And Charles Town and it's peoples, are better for having had "Nick" as a leader for such a long time.
