VOTE AGAINST JOHN T. BOIFEUILLET
FOR PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSIONER
For a man to have held office con
tinuously for the past thirty-five,
years, as Honorable John T, Boif
euillet boasts 01 having done, with
never anything reflecting substan
tial service in the various positions
he has held, in America and in Eu
rope, don’t you think it is time for a
change? He has been the recipient
of $30,000.00 in salary, with intre
est at 6 per cent, since going on the
Commission, and I charge that he
has never done anything of sub
stantial veluc for the masses of
Georgia. On the contrary, he has
given his time almost exclusively
to newspaper work, for which he is
paid a handsome salary, in violation
of the law and his oath of office.
He has voted against placing twen
ty-one hundred small hsipping points
in Georgia on an equal footing with
thirty-odd large shipping points in
Georgia, which, had his views pre
vailed, would have resulted in great
lose and handicap in the way of
growth to the rural sections of Geor
gia. It has been within his power
since last January to have joined
others and lowered rates on fertil
izers and pulverized limestone, for
agricultural purposes, if he cared to
do so, with the result that countless!
thousands of dollars wouV have
been saved the farmers of
on the 1924 crops. I charge that he
knows no more about the technical

duties of his office today than he
did hte day that he went in office,
due largely to the fact that he has
given his time to newspaper work,
at the expense- and with great loss
to the citizens of Georgia.
Our State Highway Department is
forced to incur an expense against
the tax payers of the State of ap
proximately $500,000.00 a year, be
cause of the high rates maintained
in Georgia on sand and gravel, as

without the state into points in
Georgia. He recently voted for the
payment of an Engineer of over
SIBOO.OO for -an inspection of pas
senger coaches, which work he
should have done himself. His recotd
has been one of wasteful extrava
gance of the funds provided for the
work of the Commission, and with
no substantial service to the people
as a Commissioner.
I believe he ought to be defeated,
and if I am elected as his successor,
I pledge a sane and equitable dis

Commissioners, - and I will stay on
