Letter - "Rubber Stamp Public Bodies"

from County Commissioner Ron Beaty


With regard to the pending West Harwich District of Critical Planning Concern (DCPC), In my opinion, a disturbing observation has recently been made.

Whether they be appointed, like the Cape Cod Commission and the Harwich Planning Board, or elected, like the Harwich Board of Selectmen and the Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates,  “Rubber Stamp Public Bodies” at any level of government are unhealthy and never a good thing.

RON BEATY, Barnstable County Commissioner
