To the Editor:
I may have made a mistake by investing in a retail strip center in Cary.
Little did I know that Cary was the only town around that does not allow office and service uses in its retail-zoned properties. The economy and this anti-growth policy have caused me to have vacancies that have been financially draining and have caused my property to decline in value.
Recently, I was shocked to hear that some Cary Village Board members and one village president candidate do not want to allow office uses in the retail districts under any circumstances. These people are out of touch with reality. This attitude might explain why Cary has so many vacancies.
President candidate Bruce Kaplan understands the importance of private property rights, free markets and how to shed the reputation of being unfriendly to business growth. Cary would benefit from voting Bruce its next president April 9.
