To the Editor:
May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month.
It is predicted that this will be the worst deer tick season ever.
There is a full-fledged epidemic of Lyme disease on Cape Cod. What are the towns doing to combat this disease?
Other than tick-warning signs on golf courses, not much is evident. No warnings from Chambers of Commerce, real estate or resort industries.
The town has salaried health agents. They are letting us down.
Hold them accountable; this is their job.
Lyme has long ago surpassed HIV, Aids in numbers on Cape Cod. Why the silence?
Hold your town selectmen responsible. If the state legislature will not act, your local government must!
