Rec program is a ‘win-win’ for community, says Potsdam man

To the Editor:

The Potsdam Recreation program provides a variety of activities for the children of our community. It is an employer for teen workers.

This is a classic win-win. Voters should support the program.

I am disappointed in the decision to have the vote open to property tax payers only.

While a renter’s name does not appear on the property tax rolls, they are surely paying for the property taxes as a part of their rent. Property owners include their costs, including taxes, into the monthly rent.

To exclude these voters sets a terrible example about civic participation in government.
