Edenton, N. C.
To The Voters Os The Town Os Edenton:
As a candidate for the BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS, I
wish to make the following statements in connection therewith:
I believe the present rates charged by the Board of Public
Works for electric current are high—too high, and that these
rates, if seriously re-examined with the view of reducing same,
can be reduced and the Board of Public Works still have ample
revenue from its collections to cover necessary operating ex
penses, maintenance and replacement costs and a reasonable re
serve for future additions and unpredictable damage to lines.
Likewise will have sufficient funds left to transfer to the General 1
Fund of the Town to be used for those several objects that can
not be provided for in the Town’s budget but by custom have
become a sort of fixed expense to the Town government.
! believe a reduction in the present electric current rates
would be an incentive to increase consumption of electricity and
thereby materially aid the average-income family, many of
whom are buying their homes, by placing within their income
the use of modern labor saving appliances such as they have
never been able to use in Edenton but are so widely used else
I believe the practice of extending the Town’s electric lines
outside the Town of Fdenton should, in the future, be curtailed,
if not stopped. The people in the rural areas can now obtain
electric current from the REA. and I question the fairness of
taking collections paid by the citizens of Edenton for electric
current and water and spending them for rural electric lines.
I believe the Board of Public Works should operate the
Electric and Water Department on a sound, impartial and eco
nomical basis and favor full publicity in the press of its operat
ing income and expenses at least once each year, reflecting in
an understandable way all collections received and expenditures
made, including amounts transferred to the general fund of the
Town of Edenton.
On the basis of the foregoing statements, I solicit your vote
and support in the coining election.
Ralph E. Parrish
CANDIDATE. FOR BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS
