To the Editor:
When Mark Kownick was on the Cary Village Board, he voted for a series of tax and fee increases.
This led to some existing businesses leaving and rejection by other businesses looking to move here.
Is Mark opposed to the transparency and openness that Bruce Kaplan and the new board has brought? If there was such a concern about Kaplan being a Realtor on the board, don't you think something would have come up by now? It hasn't, and it won't.
Bruce Kaplan and others saw what was happening, decided it was time for a change, campaigned and won resoundingly. For the past two years, he has been working with the board, residents and businesses to reverse the negative effects of past boards.
The residents were longing for an open, honest and transparent government, and Bruce has been part of that change and deserves to continue by being elected village president of Cary.
