After careful observance or the government of Sussex county as it presently, operates, and after a number of interviews with both citizens and officers or the county, and after an intensive study or the, Optional Forms Act of 1952, it is my sincere belief that the citizens of Sussex County, would realize greater benefits and be able to exert more influence in their local affairs if they would change from the present form or local government to the County Executive form of local government.
