Jim Fouts newly elected mayor of
Warren who in his first remarks stated that this city government will
be by the people and for the people and that his decisions would be
based on what was best for the community. He quoted President Truman
who justified decisions by asking will it benefit the average citizen.
In his first appearance before city
council he stated that he was going to drive his own car rather than
use a city car thus saving the citizens money,
and that he was not going to use a police officer as a chauffeur
as did former mayor. He felt that police officers are
better used in the service of our city as police officers.
