Tel. 689-2216 TIME FOR A CHANGE Dear Citizens of Brewster; On the Sept. primary election ballot, you are being asked by the town council to OK the purchase of a new snowplow and a new backhoe. This will be through the sale of bonds. Our present snow removal equipment just will not do the job If we are hit with heavy snows this winter. We have been lucky the last few years. Presently the town must contract for backhoe services. During the last 4 years we have paid out approximately $48,000 for this service. I don't know how many thousands were paid out before. It's my understanding this t48,000 was paid to one Individual and without the benefits of competitive bidding. For $48,000 we could have two brand new backhoes sitting in the town garage. So, I feel the purchase of a new snowplow and a new backhoe'are In the best Interest of the town. Also, if you would care to discuss any town issue with me, please stop me on the street or call me at home. TIME FOR A CHANGE Thank You Sam Almond Paid PoUtical Adverumnent by Sam Almond ii U./ICLC.alcL .... September 10. 1981 Washington State's a good place to live Recent studies show that Washington public assistan- ce recipients receive enough financial aid to take care of their essential needs, Rep. Scott Barr, R-Edwall, said after reviewing new data. Also state employees make a comfortable living even in these tight budget times. "Washington State is still a good place to live," Rep. Barr said, "and it offers em- ployment opportunities equal in all areas." During the 1981 Legislative session, the Republican-led Legislature took a new direction with the state's welfare programs, Rep. BaIT said. It closed open-ended programs in the Department of Social and Health Services and tightened the department's bureaucratic budget. "The Legislature also tightened eligibility stan- dards ior programs within Paae 3 the agency to assure that state assistance goes to the people who need the help most," Rep. Barr said. In comparing our state's monthly payment for a four- person welfare family with those of other states which are camparable in average income levels, we offer sub- stantial assistance to those families in need. As of July 1, Washington state's monthly payment for a family of four is $,501, plus an additional annual energy allowance of $106. This applies to welfare families living in King, Pier- ce, Kitsap, Snohomish and Thurston Counties. In the rest of the state, where the cost of living is slightly lower, the monthly payment is $452 plus the $106 energy allowance. In comparison, New York pays between $515 and 02 a month, Michigan pays Z3, Minnesota $520 and Oregon pays between $390 and $425. "What we are providing in this area ere basic programs to meet the actual needs of those who can't help them- selves - food, shelter and essential medical expen- ses," Rep. Barr said. "Two programs were created to decrease our dependence on the federal government, because we anticipated federal budget cuts." Rep. Barr also said that according to figures released by the U.S. Census Bureau, Washington State and local government em- ployees ranked fourth among the states in overall salary, earning an average of $1,545 per month In 1980. "We offer a good living for state employees even with the essential budget cuts that have been made. Their salary is $200 above the national average," he said. At the same time, com- )aring the govern- ment employees to popula- tion, Washington ranked 30th among all states.
