The Caddo Herald
January 5, 1912
In this issue appears the announcement of Scott Powell for county commissioner for this district. Mr. Powell is well and favorably known to all the citizens of this part of the district, and needs no introduction. To those who are not acquainted with Mr. Powell, The Herald will say that he is a man not only well qualified for the place, but for any other place. He is a farmer, a young man, experienced in business, bears an unassailable reputation for probity and fairness.
Mr. Powell believes strictly in economy as applied to county government. He believes in demanding to know where every dollar of the people’s money goes and to know that the county gets full value for every dollar spent. He does not believe in useless expenditures, and has an idea that the county’s business should be conducted with the same degree of watchfulness as one’s private business.
If the democratic voters elect Scott Powell they will have no reason to regret their choice we firmly believe.
