In the United States of America, PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS are sacrosanct, which is why as a candidate for Barnstable County Commissioner in 2016, I signed a pledge to protect PRIVATE PROPERTY RIGHTS in Massachusetts and on Cape Cod.
The pending West Harwich District of Critical Planning Concern (DCPC) is a classic example of excessive government overreach and a clear infringement of private property rights within the area in question!
This is one of the main reasons why I will be voting against the DCPC today.
Ron Beaty, County Commissioner
