MAYORAL ELECTION. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 8 June 1939
This Saturday all ratepayers and residents of the Borough of Upper Hutt have a duty to perform—a,duty and a privilege" under our democratic system where per medium of their vote the people will choose their Chief Citizen for the ensuing two years. Every citizen should exercise his or her right, and cast their vote in favour of the candidate they desire to govern, whether or not their vote is over-ruled by an opposing majority—there is the responsibility with
everyone entitled to a vote to cast their individual vote for each expression or voice through the ballot box has its potentiality and its power. Upper Hutt electors in the past have always realized their responsibility in this direction in past elections. Can we record an even bigger percentage on this occasion? In municipal elections the. elector should forget any gain he may possibly receive and think of the community, and endeavour to return to office the man who has the ability and promise of g...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 8 June 1939
(To'the Editor). With reference to the question- aires appearing -in the "Leader" of 1/6/39, and as exdDeputy- Mayor, I am asked to answer:—' The; 'statement that I was in- strumental in recommending to the Council the installing of a pumping plant to overcome the water-shortage is correct. > Regarding the enlightening of the public as to why the pumping plant has not been the success it was anticipated it would be. ' The pumping plant and well. had not been completed when the Council of which I had been De- puty-Mayor went out of office. The contributing delay was the difficulty in obtaining'the Electric Motor and Pump from the manu- facturers. The putting down "ol the well and' concreting of the sides, etc. were completed, and for" trial purposes a' second-hand pump was borrowed, the- result of - the test being ample water, which when analysed, was found to be ,of excellent purity. Mr. McCurdy, Mr. Day, .Engineer, and represerita- . tives of the Pumping Pl...

MERIT and RELIABILITY.
KEYS for MAYOR
My reason for not addressing public meetings at this election is that I did my duty efficiently while on the council by all sections of the community and have nothing to explain away.- Therefore, I am not pre- pared to criticize the council of which the late Mr. Peter Robertson was Mayor, because, no one could contest an. election against a fairer opponent. He was a gentleman who never resorted to unfair tactics or vilified an opponent, and his untimely death is a great loss to the Bor- ough.. ...'■_■ '.'.-.■'/.■ ' _ ;'.'":,■ "•..-■;"' Believing that candour and simple home truths'; are wanted in this Mayoral Election campaign, I will not be a party to "going .around soliciting votes; but rather would I be judged by the electors on ability and 7 year's of loyal and efficient service to the Borough. This is all I have to offer the electors. If in the past this has met with your appro-; val, it is reasonable to expect I will...

Councillor Clyma persisted in asking, "Were any complaints sent in?" .He wanted to know "why these com- plaints were hushed up?" and assert- ed things were not dealt'with in that . way by the previous Council.

ELECTION MEETING. MR. RENDLE AT TRENTHAM. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 8 June 1939
MR. RENDLE AT TRENTHAM.
Aii election meeting in support of his candidature .was held at Trentham by. Mr. Rendle on Tues- day, there.being only a small at- tendance present. , Mr. A. Mumby carried out the duties of Chairman, and introduc- ing the. candidate, stated that everyone regretted the death, of Mr. P. Robertson who, in his opinion, was a wonderful man and of kindly nature to all. . The Borough had sustained a great loss in his death. Mr.; Rendle was offering his services to the people to fulfil that office, and if elected, would worthily uphold the dig- nity, of the Borough in every shape and form. Mr. Rendle, in opening his ad dress, paid, tribute to the of Mr. Robertson.. . The speaker stated that it. seemed to him that the people cf the Borough were well satisfied with the present Council and the work they are doing. The reason why there is such a few here is in my opinion' a standing testimony to the efficiency of how. the Bor- ough is run., ...
Loyal Rose of Sharon Lodge, M.U.I.O.O.F. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 8 June 1939
Loyal Rose of Sharon Lodge, M.U.1.0.0.F.
The above Lodge is to be con- gratulated on having just won'the ritual shield which is, competed for twice annually amongst -the town and Hutt Valley M.U.L0.0.F. Lodges. Competition is very keen, not only for word perfection in ' the ritualj but also for lodge de- corum;-so that -it is all -the more to Rose of Sharon's credit 'that the win was by a comfortable margin after two seconds and a third place. Brother Roy Good- man, N.G. not, ,pnly piloted the lodge to first place, but himself came within one point of winning the Noble Grand's jewel also for the district, a very creditable per- formance. Sister Bird gained top marks in the -I.P.N.G's Chair. As the Lodge is at present hold- er of.a Table Tennis Shield, and the Smith Membership Shield for highest percentage of increase in membership, it can readily be de- ducted that the- present personnel of the Lodge is a very live one. A good showing was also put up by two teams at the Hutt V...

SENIOR B. UPPER HUTT 5 v. WENEREI 1.
Under ideal conditions the im- proving local side proved too j strong for the Wellington team. Upper Hutt's' superiority was in the better understanding be- tween halves and forwards, the cool judgment of M. Auekram and J. Marshall being good to watch. . The majority of the goals came from short passes from the' halves to the t wing and then along the f rward line to' the centre forward. • The whole team is to be con- gratulated on ihaving learnt when to pass the ball, after first draw- ing the ' defender to tackle, this being in no small measure, the means of their win. Scorers for Upper Hutt: J. Marshall, 4; E. Wellington, 1. Junior.—Hutt United, 3, Upper Hutt, 0. On the same ground the Junior team were defeated by a better balanced side, who kept position well and finished off their move- ments. - , . - The best of the Upper Hutt girls on the day was E. Auek- ram, who is becoming a good fast wing.

Ladies and Gentlemen, It is not my intention to analyze, or criticise the merits of any, or all of the candidates. I do not require any Political Party or. organisation to boost me along in. my candidature during this election. I have as I said before, been, among you as a resident and x .ratepayer for over 24 years. I am leaving it to you, as electors, to exercise your judgment as to whether I am a fit person to merit your support. During my years as a Councillor, I have always tried to assist my fellow Councillors to administer the affairs of the Borough in a prudent manner. When I assumed the Chairmanship for five years of the Works Committee of your Council, the Borough had practically no plant worth mentioning; and essential, .even for the carrying out of ordinary mainte...
CORRESPONDENCE. [Newspaper Article] — Upper Hutt Leader — 8 June 1939
(To the Editor). Dear Sir, Some doubt "exists in the minds of numbers of residents as to ,why Mr. T. G. Hutcheson has thought, it necessary to publish his par-, tisianship views of Mr. F. P. Keys. Surely he does not think that his personal opinion is of vital interest to the electors.- The public recognise his signature as Ihe "Official Reporter" of the Ratepayers and. Citizens' Associa- t*on and may be misled into' i'. inking that Mr. Keys is the of- ii 4al candidate. Letters to . the Tress are compiled by a Special ( ommittee. Mr. Hutcheson is merely the writer and recorder, bis services being recognised by the usual honorium. This being the case and, in view <"f the fact, that the Executive has, at its last two meetings, de- clared'"by motion," its strict im- partiality on this very controver- sial subject. ' .
