Excerpt from Citizens' Candidate for Mayor, Samuel A. Green: City Election, December 12, 1882 The alternative is an avowed party administra tion of municipal affairs. It is the professed desire of a particular faction to obtain possession of the City Government, as a means of political capital. They want to use the public offices as rewards for the services of their friends. So shrewd an observer as Mr. Hugh Toland (who was recently defeated in his partisan movement to oust from office our present Register of Deeds) remarks: The Democratic party are in a majority in this City, and ought to have the patronage; and they are bound to have it, too l There is the whole situation in a nut-shell. They want to turn out a man who has been honest, andcapable, and acceptable to the community, from his very indifference to party politics, in order that they may have a Mayor and Board of Alder men who will see to it that only citizens of a certain stripe have any rights that need redress ing. Do the inhabitants of Boston wish this? Do they Wish to see the management of our finances, and taxes, and most vital interests, pass out of the control of experienced and faithful officials into that of persons who will be expected to use the positions for all they are worth politi cally? If so, let them vote in favor of a partisan City Government, for the motto of this political movement is a clean sweep of offices.
