County Commissioner Ron Beaty

Saturday, May 5, 2018: Cape Cod resident Ron Beaty announced today that he has launched a Non-binding Public Policy Ballot Question Petition Drive to establish Term Limits for elected Massachusetts State officials. 

Beaty, a Barnstable County Commissioner, and a Republican State Representative Candidate for the 5th Barnstable District, arranged for the official  petition forms to be mailed to him by the Secretary of State’s Office, Elections Division. 

Beaty stated, “Collection of voter signatures on the petitions will be ongoing in the weeks and months ahead. If successful, the Term Limits question will appear on the ballot in November on a State Representative District by District basis.”  

Beaty further explained, “If approved by voters in any of the chosen Districts this coming November,  the ballot question’s impact could eventually be felt across the Commonwealth.” 

5th Barnstable District State Representative Candidate Beaty said, “Term Limits would provide new people with innovative ideas to elected State Legislative and Constitutional Offices.” 

County Commissioner Beaty elaborated,  “Term Limits would reduce the influence of special interests and extremist political pressure groups as well as greatly enhance citizen involvement in our Massachusetts State government.” 

Beaty continued, “Additionally, term limits would provide a vital restriction on the unnecessary concentration of power by elected officials, reinforce democracy and help maintain long-term governmental stability.“ 

Beaty propounded, “Finally, open, transparent and accountable State  government would be augmented and enhanced.“
