Famous quotes containing the words area and/or local:

    Now for civil service reform. Legislation must be prepared and executive rules and maxims. We must limit and narrow the area of patronage. We must diminish the evils of office-seeking. We must stop interference of federal officers with elections. We must be relieved of congressional dictation as to appointments.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    —Marie Collins Swabey. Comic Laughter, ch. 5, Yale University Press (1961)
