Letter to the Editor: Barnstable Assembly of Delegates

Ron Beaty supports Patrick Princi for Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates seat.

To The Editor:

According to a September 23, 2011 Cape Cod Times article, the buyout and forced departure of former town manager John Klimm cost Barnstable taxpayers an estimated $450,000. That political fiasco directly resulted from the unfortunate actions of six town councilors at the time. Former Barnstable Town Councilor J. Gregory Milne was one of those persons.  

Milne could not run for another term for town council last year because of term limits. Hence, his actions were never appropriately put to any sort of referendum before the voters. He was at least partially responsible for the unnecessary financial burden placed upon local taxpayers resulting from the apparent clear lack of due diligence on the part of those who initiated the process.   

Milne is now running for the Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates against Patrick Princi.  By casting my vote, I plan to hold Milne accountable for the shear waste of taxpayer dollars which occurred last year, and also elect the superior candidate, Mr. Patrick Princi. I urge my fellow Barnstable residents to support Patrick Princi for the county legislature November 6.  Mr. Princi, recipient of the 2009 Red Cross Hero Award for Community Service, current Assembly Delegate, court probation officer and distinguished citizen, would be the sensible choice.

Whomever gets elected, the important thing is that people vote on Tuesday, November 6th!

Vote PATRICK PRINCI for Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates...Princi, "the sensible choice!"

It strongly appears that if Milne is elected, then he would be willing to surrender the Town of Barnstable's approximate 21% weighted vote thereby giving the smaller towns more power within the county legislature despite the fact that Barnstable hosts the single largest population of any town on the Cape. The weighted vote system is based upon the premise of one man-one vote and since Barnstable has more voters than any other municipality, it should retain its political power just as it has since the creation of the County Assembly. If Milne wins, then we all lose! VOTE for PATRICK PRINCI.

I saw both candidates at the Centerville Post Office this morning. It is going to be a tough choice since they are both good boys.

You're joking, right???

I'm leaning toward Greg Milne, but I am still not sure. I was not all that thrilled with losing John Klimm last year, but Greg did not act alone on that matter, so why should he bear so much of the blame?

Well now I'm not going to vote for Mr. Milne, I saw him screaming at some poor old woman because she did not want to take the campaign literature he tried to shove at her while she walked by. Mr. Princi has my vote. At least he is a gentleman!
RON BEATY November 05, 2012 at 09:27 PM
Well, that is certainly no surpise...
RON BEATY November 06, 2012 at 01:32 PM
Vote PATRICK PRINCi for Assembly Delegate from the Town of Barnstable...
