  1. No wonder he (Preston Rea) signed the petition being passed by McClelland. Can’t even get his own pay correct?

  2. But you have to give Alden credit for their salaries in comparison with other townships in the collar counties.

  3. Alden, Hebron and Burton are the smallest townships of the 17 townships which are all 6 miles square with the exception of Burton. The southeastern part of the County has the most population and can well afford the salaries it takes to run their townships. Their telephones never stop ringing. Night & Day.
