Pentre Ratepayers' Assoclatian

Pentre Ratepayers' Assoclatian To the Editor of the Rhondda Leader." Sir,—In your detailed report of last District Council meeting, certain remarks were made regarding the Pentre Rate- payers' Association by Dr. Thomas which we cannot allow to pass by unchallenged, as they are inaccurate. Before doing so, we take this opportunity through the Press of thanking the council ror ttieir courtesy and kindness in dealing with our applications. We should like to know what is meant by Dr. Thomas' assertion that the Association consists of two or three people? It has been his policy for the last three years to ignore all appli- cations made by this Association. We are proud of the fact that this Associa- tion is the pioneer in the Valley; and to-day, to emphasise the fact that in- creased interest is taken in municipal matters, Ratepayers' Associations have been formed at T'reorchy and Penygraig, while at Mid-Rhondda and Porth the Chambers of Trade are fulfilling the function, of a Ratepayers' Association, which, united for mutual advantages, no District Councillor will be able to ignore. If any doubt exists as to the genuineness of our Association, we shall be pleased to show our books to any impartial and un- biassed tribunal, and we hope that in the future our requests will be met with fair- ness even by our opponents. The Asso- ciation has not been formed to act in direct opposition to the Council, but is used as a medium by the members to ventilate genuine; grievances, in which spirit we trust our District Councillors will take fame.-You,rs truly, DANIEL THOMAS. Chairman.
