Why Does County Government Exist in Barnstable County?

June 28th in Yarmouth Port

Join speakers Jack Yunits (County Administrator) and Mary Chaffee (Brewster delegate to the Assembly of Delegates) for a stimulating discussion to shed light on how our county government works. The Cape Women’s Coalition will host Yunits and Chaffee at their monthly Friday Roundtables at the Optimist Café in Yarmouth Port, MA, June 28 from 8AM-10AM. Yunits and Chafee will answer many common questions citizens have about their county government including:  What are the major issues facing county government (e.g., climate change, charter review)? What services does the county provide that support our many small towns on Cape Cod?  What do towns give and receive in return? Why does this matter to each one of us? 

Every month on the 4th Friday, Cape Women’s Coalition hosts a roundtable discussion featuring guest speakers, panel discussions and open discussion about issues that affect Cape Cod and its residents with a focus on women and how they are uniquely affect. The non-partisan group focuses on civil discourse in an effort to shed light on all aspects of the challenges facing our community.

The Cape Women’s Coalition (CWC) is a non-partisan coalition of individuals and representatives of organizations and groups working together as an agent of change to encourage and support women to enter public life and become leaders through civic engagement. The vision of CWC is to ensure more voices of women are in the conversation that will create a balance in leadership and decision making that will result in significant changes in the way our communities’ function. CWC does this by educating the public about the benefits of a better balance in decision-making and leadership at all levels. The Coalition strives to recruit, mentor and train women at a grassroots level in traditional and non-traditional ways to engage in their communities and to be civically aware and involved.
