Timmerman Town of Loekhart Dear Sir: With deep regret I submit I, CLIFF MADDOX would like to talk about the candidates of Covington County in the beginning of my ad. On numerous occasions, we have been invited to express our viewpoints to a group of people. The gentlemen that are running for office in Covington County are to be commended for their res- Pect to their opponents beyond the call of duty. On several occasions, I have heard a gentleman speaking be- hind an opponent, using his opponents name and agree with the previous opponents statement. To me that is a prize asset to society and to the people of Covington County which they repre- sent. Covington County should feel honored to be represented by such people. I, CLIFF MADDOX, am qualified, submitted and offered to the people a few points which he thinks would benefit the whole coun- ty. Many of you have read my card, turned and shook my hand and stated "I agree with you 100%." CLIFF MADDOX BELIEVES THAT: 1) Covington County should be in the road building program herself. 2) Covington County should increase her purchasing power by buying on a volume basis. 3) Covington County should work all prisoners in the county jail.

The frame of mind I now have, I can no longer be of service to the good people of Lockhart. This has been a high point in my life to be ho- nored with two consecutive terms as councilman. It has truly been a pleasure and an honor to have served and worked with people of in- tegrity who the Town of Lock- hart have elected and employed. Sincer#ly yours, /s/Edward W.
