David Paoo Jellings for Sheriff, 1928.


Candidate for Sheriff

For the peace of our county.

I am a native of this island. I was born on Desha Street, Palama, and I wad educated at Saint Louis College [kula nui o Sana Lui]. I served for fourteen years as the head of the finance department of the Post Office with good conduct, and I pledge to work diligently should you give me that post of sheriff, and I will strive with all my might to have peace dwell in our land.
