This letter concerns the Town of Fries town election on May 1.
This is the most controversial and crucial election to ever occur in this town.
The issues that concern citizens are: golf carts on streets, charging unnecessary excessive rates on water and sewer utility bills, unaffordable train station, possibility of raising real estate taxes.
I have lived in Fries for 46 years, served on town council two terms and also as mayor.
As far back as I can remember, Fries has been an affordable community to live and raise a family.
