There has been some griping about non-Gloversville residents chiming in about the mayoral race. Gloversville is not an isolated island in the sea of Fulton County. Some people are summer residents in the city, and are certainly affected with the success or failure of Gloversville and pay the same taxes as residents do. Some children care and help sustain the welfare of their parents who are residents of the city. Some are landlords, who may not live in Gloversville, but certainly have a say in how the city is run.
The success or failure of this city is not isolated to Gloversville, but can affect the whole of Fulton County. So while residents can vote for the best candidate, people living outside the city certainly have the right to voice their concern too.
