VOTE



YES



on Charter
Atnenilment

No. 28



TO MY FELLOW CITIZENS:

Charter Amendment No. 28 will extend Civil Service to several hundred
city employees not novv^ enjoying its privileges. Most of these are men and
women who have satisfactorily served the City for many years in various
capacities. Of these some five hundred are employed in our beautiful park
system, and one hundred and fifty in the playgrounds. Men and women doing
a similar character of work in other departments have been under Civil Service
for years.

Two years ago this same amendment was only defeated by a narrow margin.
The vote being: Yes, 70,044, No, 73,760. With a better understanding of its
purpose, this year I feel confident that it will be overwhelmingly carried.

Quite recently four hundred and fifty employees of the Spring Valley
Water Company were taken over by the City and given full Civil Service
standing with all its privileges.

Now, I am asking you, my fellow citizens, as a matter of simple justice to
do for these experienced city workers what was done for the four hundred and
fifty Spring Valley employees who had not previously worked a day for the City.

"Efficiency, Not Politics,"

Slogan of San Francisco's

Mayor




THE election of Mayor James
Rolph, Jr., as Governor of Cali-
fornia and Senator Frank F. Mer-
riam as Lieutenant Governor, is
considered a foregone conclusion by
Republican leaders from manj' parts
of California, but nevertheless both
candidates are closing a vigorous
campaign in which thej- are outlin-
ing their future policies.

Mayor Rolph is looked upon from
one end of California to the other as
a great builder and his assurances
expressed frequently during the
Primary, as well as the final cam-
paign, that he will carry on a con-
struction program free from poli-
tics, has won him great support.
An oft-repeated statement by Rolph
in many of his campaign addresses



gives a concise view of his policy
towards his building program. In
this he has stated :

"One of the first acts of my ad-
ministration, if elected Governor,
will be to approve of the building of

During- the Primary cami^aign,
when he visited the entire 58 coim-
ties of California, as well as since
that time, he has been making a
•careful survey of problems requir-
ing the attention of the state gov-
ernment in the various parts of
California. The Mayor has been
especially interested in the Cali-
fornia water problem, seeking infor-
mation wherever he goes in the arid
and semi-arid parts of the state. He
has consulted with leaders of every
community he has visited so that he
will have first-hand information
when, upon becoming Governor,
these matters will come to his of-
ficial attention. No man ever became
Governor of California with a more



intimate knowledge of the needs of
its people than San Francisco's
Mayor.
