Ward 3 Vacancy
The city board, in regular April
session Tuesday night at the city
(hall, called two elections, one I or ,uv
jWard 1 school trustee fo be held t-rtjpjp
|May 6, and one for election of ? "*
i mayor and five commissioners to
be held May 13.
Necessity for the two elections
was found, In the opinion.of City
Attorney J. R Davis and George
Franklin, of the North League of
Miinicioalities. because no provision
num., intm?--' . M?
ments to the city charter related to
school trustee elections.
Mr. Davis told the Herald that It
P|>fca8 his opinion that two elections
a;were now required and H L. Buraidette,
city manager, said Mr. Frank
'* I lin had given the same opinion.
91 Another change from previously
j announced procedure came, when it
; was discovered that the city school
l" i board has the power to appoint
"'trustees to fill unexpired terms. /
Mr. Burdette, using a copy of the >
1939 charter amendments as introdu
ced to the legislature, had fdund
no provision for appointment for un
expired terms. Actual copy of the
bill passed, obtained from the Nor1,th
Carolina League of Municipals j
ties, included the following provlsj
ion relating to school .trustees: "
j In case of a vacancy occurring in
c the board of trustees, the unexpired
3 term shall be fllied by the other
* members of the board and shall be
J selected from the Ward wherein the
h Mr. Burdette said the provision
was evidently added after the orlgi

Voting system on th? city school,
