The appointment of a rural carrier for the route out of Grantsville
has, as is usually the case in this county, seemingly worked its way into
Perhaps it will be recalled that two examinations have already been
held by the Civil Service commission to fill this job. Now again
another examination will be held Spencer sometime the first of the year.
As the matter now stands, so we are told, Jim Gill is the only one eligible
for the appointment, having passed the last examination for this position.
Mr. Gill carried the mail on this route when it was first established.
He gave excellent service and the majority of the those being served on
this route are asking that he be returned to them as their carrier.
Mr. Gill was told, previous to the last examination, that the people
of Pine Creek might lose this route as there was no one who had made application
for taking the examination. In good faith he passed the examination.
We find his appointment held up only to passify a few cheap politicians.
Attention Congressman C. Bailey: This stinks! And if you uphold
such tactics you are the worst stinker of the bunch!
