The Com.mission consists of three commissioners elected to office every two years. EOITORIAL:It is becoming apparent to more and mote peonle that the outcome o.f this 1946 election of commission ers is to a deciding voice in the future of Temple Terrace. 1. For the past four years we have contented ourselves with just rocking along under restrictions and a damper in general caused by the war. Mrs. B.R. Giddings is now from the hospital where she spent a week and underwent an operation. She is doing very nicely. Now the war and a goodly number of restrictions are out of the way; ahead of us lies peace with all its opportunities. The next two years are going to which way we are going to go. Are we to drag along, missing opportunities and being content to ao nothing, as we have in the past four years; or are we to turn over a new leaf, operate this city in an efficient, businesslike fashion, and the most of these onsurging peace opportunities? We must choose the latter if we are to develop this city into the finest suburb on the Florida West Coast. It can be .done, but not without the injection of blood to supply that badJy needed imagi nat.:ion' and effici..sncy in our govern (Cdntinued on ppge two) Mrs. Frank Thomson is now in the hospital where she underwent an operation this morning. Guests of Mr. and Mrs. Harry F. Samms are Miss Alice Brady and Mrs. W.J. Hefferman, from Staten I sland, New York. These ladies have been chums of Mrs. Samms .since childhood. Mr. and Mrs. W.E. Henderson are spending their vacation at Indian Rocks Beach.
-_... TEMPLE TERRACE SENTINEL 2 EDITORIAL:-(Continued from page one) ment. do is to honestly consider the The qualification as a candidate records a.nd qualifications of for re-election of Mr. Dowling, all the cancidates. If you do this, after his conduct for the past two you will elect the kind o f p erson years, is an insult to every voter who can put Temple Terrace out in Temple Terrace. Out of forty-front where it belongs. If you do three regular commissioners' meet-not do this, then you seserve ings held in the last two years, exactly what you will get. Mr. Dowling attended ONLY 13.(The figures may be obtained by anyone wishing to read the minutes in the office of the City Clerk.) Of course, Mr. Dowling was out of town on business when the meetings were held, and no on e is criticizing him for this, because it is his means of making a living. But who can deny that it took plenty of conceit, audacity, or just plain gall for him to ask the people of Temple Terrace to vote for him again on such a record? However,. .we cannot lay the blame for the sins of omission and commission incurred by the city government at Mr. Powling's door; he was not here to help or hinder. So oblivious to the needs of the people who elected them were the other two that in order to secure for the com munity the things, the simple little things, to which it is entitled to receive at the hands of commission, the people of Temple Terrace found it necessary to form a Temple Terrace Civic Association, taking upon their own shoulders the tasks assigned to th e City commissioners und .er our city charter. The founder and wheel horSE;) of the Association is John Simmon. Those of you who have observed him in his duties as president realize that he is relentless and untiring an d has the ability to work smoothly and efficiently with others. He has done much1start Temple Terrace at least thinking and in some instances acting progressively. Mr. Powel has long been a resident of Temple Terrace. He ha3 watched it flounder and now realizes that the time has come to act in securing the future. Most of you know Mr. Powel well and are acquainted with his .qualifications. He is an outstanding example of being able to size ap a accomplish the job thoroughly and ef ficientli'.However, above all, he has the best interests of the community and its residents at heart. > All that I Bm Bsking you to I am not saying that the present commissioners are malicious and unscruptlous, f o r they are anything but that. They are all good fellows. But I am :?aying that they just do not have w hat it takes to make the type o f men we are going to need to gui6e us in the future; they have shown this clearly by their r ecords. It is my belief that we have pE)rsons in Temple Terrace who can fill the requirements better, and, above all, who cannot and will not be dictated to nor influenced by the club house or by any real estate interests. I propose that we elect these men to do the job.
