For County Clerk
by Troy W Frazier

To the Voters of Letcher Co.: As the primary nears, I feel it my duty to announce my desire to become a candidate for County Court Clerk on the Republican ticket and solicit the personal support of every voter in the county.

I firmly believe in the individual interest of every citizen for the good of his community, his county, the state and the country, and with this policy and thought in mind I would be glad to have a chance to show what I can do in performing the duties of County Court Clerk to the best interest of the taxpayers of Letcher county.

I have been a school teacher for a number of years, served 4 years and 6 months in the United States Army, which included 18 months in France and nine months on the firing line during the World War.

I was born and raised in the mountains, a son of Hiram Frazier of Smoot Creek; have always endeavored to obey the law and help to enforce it; I naturally have the welfare of my brother mountain men at heart, and with my education, my appreciation of hardship and my experience in business I feel able to perform the duties of County Clerk if nominated and elected.

I would appreciate an investigation of my character and past life by those who do not know me, and would ask my friends to use their influence with any who may inquire about my ability and honesty. All I want is a chance to be of service to my fellow citizens and ask your support in the August primary.

Yours sincerely,
Troy W. Frazier
