Consumer advocate Ralph Nader will speak at Hartwick College at 8 p.m. Monday, April 18.

The internationally known advocate will speak on “Reagan, Reaganomics and the Power Elite” in the Agora of the Dewar Campus Center.

Nader first became known after the 1965 publication of his book, “Unsafe at Any Speed,” which took the automobile industry to task on vehicle safety violations.

His charges, which were supported by data, started the recall of millions of defective vehicles and caused revolutions in safety, sanitation and pollution control.

Nader, a Connecticut lawyer, has moved beyond seat belts and air bags and has built a national network of citizen action groups that have major impact on many areas from tax reform to nuclear energy.

The Hartwick lecture, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the college’s Student Senate and the Office of Special Programs.

MILFORD (Special) — Milford’s new mayor, Mrs. June B. Hotaling, first woman named to a mayoral post in Otsego County — took over the reins of office yesterday noon, and disclosed what appear to be plans for a village house-cleaning at the annual meeting of the village board last night.

The board last night declined to act on any of the immediate requests advanced by the new mayor, but set April 8 as the date for a special meeting to review the proposed budget, and to act on the mayor’s requests.

Her first request, that the combination of the village safe be changed, and that only the mayor, clerk and trustees be given the combination, fell flat, with no motion made to act on the request.
