Federation, Ohio Public Expenditure
Council, Pennsylvania Economy

'Brad' Trenham Ends
311/2 Years Service
N. Bradford Brad Trenham,
Executive Vice President of the Cali-
fornia Taxpayers' Association, for-
mally terminated his long career with
that organization as of December 3 1.
An apt subtitle to this taxpayer
man's history could well be: The
Man Who Came to Stay for 30
For, according to his own account,
Brad joined CTA on July 12, 1926
as Secretary of the Association's Edu-
cational Commission, promising him-
self to stay for two years. As of July
13 last year, he began his 31st year
of service with CTA.
Although he moves on to other
work (S. J. Arnold, successively
CTA's finance manager, secretary
and general manager succeeds him)
Brad says:
I do not want anyone to think that
I am taking a run-out powder from
the taxpayers' battle.

in the important expenditure fields of
highways and education.
The Conference was made possible
by a $25,000 Ford Foundation grant
which was supplemented by Council
The Conference was attended by
more than 250 people, about half
legislators and half lay participants,
observers, Council trustees, and staff
