Ron Beaty Says "no" To Relocation Of Barnstable County Government
Barnstable Citizen-Activist, Ron Beaty says, "Any plans by County Commissioner Flynn and the Barnstable County Special Commission on County Governance to relocate the county-seat will not be tolerated by Cape Codders!"
Beaty said, "County Commissioner Mary Pat Flynn appointed the members of the Special Commission on County Governance."

Along with the vast majority of Cape Codders, I would be fervently against such a radically unnecessary, expensive, taxpayer funded course of action relative to our regional government!" Mr. Beaty said, "County Commissioner Flynn and her cohorts are out of touch with reality if they truly believe that their draconian vision of Barnstable County Government would be acceptable to the rest of us who grew up, went to school, live, work and reside here on Cape Cod." According to Beaty, "No! Such a fiscally irresponsible act like that proposed by Ms. Flynn would simply not be acceptable to me and many others! The plan advocated by County Commissioner Mary Pat Flynn and some of her co-conspirators on the Special Commission clearly represents a cogent danger to the sanctity of our colonial Cape Cod heritage." Ron Beaty finally stated, "It would be met with the stiffest citizen and voter resistance possible!"
