Letter: County Commissioner Amplifies State Audit Report

From County Commissioner Ron Beaty


I am briefly writing In reference to your August 10th article titled, "State Auditor Releases Audit Report on Barnstable County: Calls for improved administration of leased properties and financing for capital projects." 

It is noteworthy that the 2013 - 2015 incompetent practices outlined within the content of said report happened chiefly during the watch of liberal Democrats, and a completely different County Administrator, who were in charge of our Cape Cod Regional Government at the time. 

During the period from 2013 - 2015, Sheila Lyons was a County Commissioner, Ronald Bergstrom of Chatham was Speaker of the Assembly of Delegates, and John Ohman of Dennis was Chairman of the Standing Committee on Finance.

The officials and persons responsible for this fiscal fiasco and menagerie of mismanagement need to be brought to light, and if at all possible, properly  held accountable. 

Thank you. 


Barnstable County Commissioner
