Citizens Ticket for Alexander Koser, 1875

Dublin Core

Description

A ticket listing a single election choice to fill the political seats of the city of Coralville. Elections were held annually in March from 1874-1953; in 1954, elections were moved to November. (Lovetinsky et al., p. 86).

This ticket states the following:

"Citizens Ticket
For Mayor, Alexander Koser,
For Recorder, John Williams.
For Treasurer, Charles Robinson.
For Street Commissioner, Charles Francis.
For Assessor, Mac D. Stewart.
For Councilmen, John Davis.* John H. Clark. Peter Kloos. Pat. McGahn. John Amspoker."

* The name of John Davis was crossed out in ink and replaced with a handwritten 'A. Williams' in the right margin of the ticket.

This ticket was most likely printed for the 1875 election and won, as the men listed filled those positions that year (the only exception being that Valentine Miller replaced Charles Robinson as Treasurer). Alexander Koser was also elected to serve as mayor for the years 1880, 1881, and 1884 (Lovetinsky et al., p. 82-83).
