It is not the policy of The Observer to mix in politics to any great extent, but under our policy of strict independence we feel it is our privilege and duty when the right time comes, to endorse any candidate when that endorsement is deserving and in our judgement for the public welfare. Under this privilege, we are going to publicly endorse John P. Rorick for the nomination for Representative of the second district, which embraces Lenawee county.
Mr. Rorick is a Seneca township man born and raised, and has lived within Lenawee county all his life, and in the township of his birth most to the time. He is one of the heaviest taxpayers of the township, is a “dirt” farmer in the truest sense of the word, at the present owning and personally operating one of the largest farm properties in the county. Besides being a practical and successful farmer he has had large experience in banking and business enterprises, having been on the original incorporators of the First National Bank of Morenci, acting as cashier of the bank for several years. Mr. Rorick is also a member of the County Road Commission, having been elected to that office when the county commission was first organized about six years ago and hold the position since.
