I have been a resident of Bayside since June 1, 2005. I have spoken to several Bayside residents about Mayor Billy Paul Fricks and I believe most Bayside residents have lost their confidence in Billy Paul Fricks.

I spoke with two Bayside officials, and both said the census is gradually falling. The population in Bayside used to be about 400 residents.

I filed a complaint in Bayside City Hall about a mosquito spraying program. The clerk told me she handed my complaint to the mayor, he read it and laid it down. As of today, Mayor Fricks never responded to me.

I spoke to city council member Leonard Spanjers about a mosquito spraying program. He said, we don’t have any money.

Another issue is Bayside residents do not have a health department. Yet Mayor Fricks wants to raise our taxes every year. This year the taxes are doubled and I read in the Refugio County Press Mayor Fricks is still at odds on the ag-exempt issue.

I support president county commissioner Ruben Lee.

Fact (1) Mayor Fricks has not supplied in writing the Bayside ordinance ag-exempt, with county appraiser Lee. Moreover Fricks and his boy, Eugene, state they made research on surrounding counties. This statement produced heresy.

Fact: (2) Fricks needs something in writing from the other counties. I find favorable judgement in county appraiser president Rueben Lee.

Fact: (3) My wife and I went to a city council meeting during which Mayor Fricks conducted a city council meeting without a full forum. The agenda was to raise taxes. There were only two city council members present.

Fact: (4) Mayor Fricks has a long history of making perjured statements, in his official capacity. These factors, give rise on the scales of justice, Mayor Fricks does not have an arguable basis for raising taxes on Bayside residents.

This renders “Taxation without representation.”
