Nighh and Holidays
fn v o ti rigfor a,County Judge, it is always well
to look at past accomplishments. I feel we have
>ne a good many fhings fhaf'are worthwhile
since I have been in office, and, while I cer-
tainly would not fake full credit for these
achievements, nevertheless I am proud to have
been a part of them. May I recall a few of
these thinqs for you?
*We fiave built, or have ready for construc-
tion, 2 1 Farm-to-Moiket R >ads and one Fed-
eral Highway, For a total of 157.4 miles. I
have participated in negotiations for 630
riqhts-of-Cvav . 2 1 0 channel easements, and
some 44 condemnation suits since being
County Judge, legal experience certainly
does count here.
*We have established an audit system for
county financial records and budgets, by
which budgets are read publicly, and audits
are printed and bpund in hard covers. They
are filed for all to see in the Clerk's office
and summaries are frequently published on
the front page of The Times.
*With the appoval of the voters, a new and
badlyneededH spi ta I addi tion has been con-
structed. Another county building has also
been erected (saving the county almost $200
monthly in rent), and four County mainten-
ance barns have been constructed—and paid
*AI| county debts have been refunded into
bonds and the C ounty is how on a cash basis .
*M re than 300 miles of county roads hove
been oiled and gravelled.
*New and modern radio equipment has been
bought (and paid for), giving Instant radio
communication throughout theC runty for law
*Newand myclern recording equipment is now
in operation (and paid for) in the C unty
Clerk's office reducing recording time from
as high as Jx weeks to three days.
M st c >unty land- records Ftave been micro-
filmed to guard against loss by fire.
The County has played a role in a number
of programs over the past years which has
led to many improvements, such as the new
Ldngford Lake, the Industrial Parkandstreet,
and water and sewer improvements in many
c<otm*y-cammunities and towns.
And with all this, we are still in fairly good
financial condition. Of 32 counties in north and
eastTexas, only nine have a lower tax rate than
RedRiverCounty while 22 ore the same or high-
er. County obligatTohs ate judged on th# basis
of per capita consolidated debt (the lower the
better). The 32-county overage is $124.64; ours
is $81.05. Only seven counties have a lower
figure, while 24 are higher. r "• ^
I think we have overcome many problems, but,
of course, many remain. Nevertheless, I think
this is a proven record of accomplishment, not
promises, and I think this record, my qualifica-
tions, andmy experience fit me to meet any sit-
uation that might arise in tl)e future in county
government, Mistakes have been made, but I
hope most of them are behind me. In my opin-
ion, there is no ubstitute for training and ex-
perience. I invite your Oonsiderati on.
