I am having an issue returning a value for the code below: I get JSON Parsing error

I have the form that is bind to URL - works fine but I get the error on the parse.

All code is below.
<!---Page 1 the form--->
<cfquery name="Recordset1" datasource="mydsn">
SELECT distinct State
FROM zipcodeworld
order by state
</cfquery>
 
<cfform name="form1" action="#CGI.SCRIPT_NAME#">
  <cfselect name="firstselect" query="Recordset1" value="state" display="state"/> <!--- works great =--->
  <cfselect name="secondselect" bind="url:citylookup.cfm?mystate={firstselect.value}" value="city" display="city"/>  <!---   This part does not work --->
</cfform>
 
 
 
<!---Page 2 the URL its binded to:--->
<cfquery name="Recordset2" datasource="mydsn">
SELECT distinct city
FROM zipcodeworld
WHERE state = <cfqueryparam cfsqltype="cf_sql_VARCHAR" value="#url.mystate#">
</cfquery>
 
<cfoutput>
#serializeJSON(Recordset2)#
</cfoutput>
<!---  it needs to return all cities in state selected from bind on form page --->
When I run the code i get a JSOn Parsing error on form page.

do you use Application.cfm?
does it output anything, like site header/footer, or a <DOCTYPE ...> declaration or some javascript?
that all will break the returned json because it will be appended to the response from the url...
