Caddo Attorney Seeks the Office of County Judge
Ex-Service Man, Formerly of Durant
Aspires to Handle County’s Probate Matters
To the voters of Bryan County: I wish to take this means of announcing to the people of Bryan County that I am in the race to be elected County Judge of Bryan County, subject to the action of the Democratic Primary August 3rd.
I was born and raised at Caddo, received my early educational training in this county and graduated at Caddo High School, 1909. I graduated from Washington & Lee University Law School, Lexington, Va, 1913 and was admitted to the practice of law in Oklahoma the same year. I have been in the practice in Caddo and Durant since that time with the exception of the time I served in the army. I spent fifteen months service overseas in England and France and after returning home I have been engaged in my work at Caddo.
I have lived my entire life in Bryan County and have adhered to the principles which go to the upbuilding of a useful citizen. I am confident of the progress of Bryan County and one only has to look at the advancement of the county during the past ten years to be assured that the people of this county stand for progress and good government. I have never held an office in this county and if you can see your way clear to support me in this campaign I respectfully ask that you give me a consideration at the primaries in August.
I believe in the enforcement of the laws. I believe that good government means the enforcement of the laws and if the people of this county see fit to elect me county judge I will uphold the laws and will render honest and efficient service throughout my term of office. Respectfully submitted, Sam W. Maytubby, Jr.
