We are only days away from Memorial Day weekend! The joyous return of summer visitors and opening of our seasonal businesses.
Now, our Cape Cod delegation decides to set up a task force for reopening. I need to ask...what have they been doing for the past five weeks?
Tom [Thomas F.] Keyes, a candidate for [5th Barnstable District] state representative, had earlier started calling for a plan for reopening.
I wish that Mr. Keyes was already a representative and member of this task force. Through him, our local businesses would have had a voice at this table.
Due to the current Cape Cod delegation’s lack of action, our local businesses have lost all bookings for this kickoff weekend! People are now heading to Rhode Island and New Hampshire.
I am voting for Tom Keyes. He will be a leader and not a back-bencher.
