Rhondda Urban District Council Election, 1909. TO THE ELECTORS OF NO. 2 WARD. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, At the urgent invitation of a large and influential section of the Electors of No. 2 Ward, I respectfully introduce myself to you as a Candidate for the honour of representing you on the above Council. I have already had experience of the work. I was returned as your Councillor in March, 1901. The functions of the Council were not so extensive at that time as they are now. Then the School Board was superintending the Education of the District, but. with the passing of the Education ARt of 1902, that was handed over to the District Council. I was then Headmaster of the Cwmparc Schools, and as the above Act made all teachers servants of the Council, I deemed it proper to resign my seat. avingnow retired from School duties after serving the neighbourhood for thirty-eight years, I am free to offer myself to serve you as your Representa- tive. It will be my only personal respon- sibility, and no private calling will inter- fere with my devotion to the work-of ■the Council. The obligations of a District Councillor demand the sacrifice of a, great part of the time of our public men, who have to divide themselves between the duties of the Council and of their own private con- cerns. As I am free of any personal cares, I shall be able to devote my whole time to your welfare and interest. I possess a good general knowledge of the work of every Department of the Council, and especially of the Education Department, the most expensive and the most influential in the future of our Valley —Education in all its phases. I shall be able to bring a life-long, experience to bear upon this, and I am the only Candidate possessing direct practical knowledge of the details of School work. I am ready to support the development of the more practical side of the School. I would multiply the Cooking, Laundry, and Housewifery Centres, and give more opportunities, particularly during the last months of Girls' school life, to practice the many arts that go to make up good Housekeeping. The present Higher Elementary School at Pentre ought to be made fully equipped as a Secondary School, and a Higher Elementary School should be built at Treorchy. As a heavy Ratepayer, I shall watch with judicious care all expenditure. Reck- less spending is often the result of in- expert consideration. My motto will be -efficiency and thoroughness in adminis- tration. I shall support with sympathy and enthusiasm any enterprises for the im- provements of our District, and the welfare of our beloved Country. Therefore, for these reasons, I be a for the honour of your VOTE and INTEREST, and if returned, I promise you that I I shall honestly try to prove myself worthy of your favour. v I am, Ladies and Gentlemen, Your obedient Servant. THOMAS MORGAN. Ardwyn House, Cwmparc. 4772
