Letter to the Editor from County Commissioner Ron Beaty:
With regard to the proposed Cape Cod Tech school building project referendum in October, and the separate (but related) September 19th Town of Barnstable Special Town Election - Proposition 2 1/2 Debt Exclusion Ballot Question, it appears that a clarification needs to be emphasized on my part.
I do NOT oppose the school’s plans – in fact I strongly support them – but I do oppose the Town of Barnstable's choice of funding mechanism on its end (the Proposition 2 1/2 Debt Exclusion).
When we are presented with the October Voter Referendum Question on whether or not to construct the new Cape Cod Tech school building, I shall be voting in favor of it, and urging others to do so as well.
I am a Cape Cod Tech alumnus, have toured the school, and met with Robert Sanborn, the Superintendent, and discussed the building project.
I have a good overall grasp of the issue and proposal. That part of the situation, I strongly support.
Barnstable County Commissioner
