Office of the Mayor
City Hall
Atlanta, Georgia

Dear Mayor Allen:

I have held off writing you concerning your statements
regarding the recent Democratic run off, hoping you might
possibly make a public apology.

Over 400,000 Georgians voted for Mr. Maddox, He is one
of the few who has taken a stand against the so-called "Great
Society" and has worked his way to this point without any help
and with a lot of opposition. I am amazed to have read these
comments made by you.

Mr. Mayor, what were your qualifications for your present
job, before your election?

The experts seem unable to understand how Mr. Maddox won.
It is my personal opinion that the public suddenly became fed up with
the Cox newspapers and radio station WSB trying to influence them.
Then after the selection, came Mayor Allen"s comments and they are
now sure they did the right thing. We have had enough.

I am glad I am a resident of Sandy Springs and that we voted
against joining you in your City of Atlanta, because if there. have been
been any "tarnished seals" you have certainly brought disgrace to the
City of Atlanta,

Ve Ours,

Roy H. ‘Beveridge q Si
