Do homework in Cary race

Published: Saturday, April 6, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

To the Editor:

Mark Kownick served two years as a Cary village trustee after being politically appointed by Village President Tom Kierna, and lost the following election.

Kownick’s accomplishments as trustee? Well, he voted to raise permit fees and to make more items subject to permits and associated fees, voted to establish commuter parking fees in train station lots on Saturdays, and voted twice to raise property taxes.

Bruce Kaplan was elected by the residents of Cary. Kaplan’s accomplishments as a trustee? Well, voted for new contracts that lowered electric and garbage bills for residents, voted to repeal Saturday parking fees at the train station, voted to add free parking spaces to accommodate downtown parking at the train station, and voted not to raise your real estate taxes twice.

Just saying, Do your homework.
