Gus Canty Community Center, 790 Main St, Falmouth, MA 02540
Every day, five people suffer a fatal overdose, over 50 people suffer non-fatal overdoses, and about 70 people become addicted to opioids across Massachusetts. An estimated quarter of a million people are living with an addiction to prescription or synthetic opioids in Massachusetts right now. The stakes are high. We can’t afford to leave any good ideas off the table.

Tuesday, November 14 - Mass. Campaign for Single Payer Health Care is holding a lobby day that Senator Cyr and State Senator Jamie Eldridge are both helping to host. Please come up to Boston for it if you’re able. The day will be spent advocating for Senator Cyr’s single payer benchmark bill and Senator Eldridge’s Medicare for all bill. The Senate is also taking up an omnibus health care reform bill next week – and Senator Cyr is working hard to have his single payer benchmark proposal (which is a proposal Senator Wolf had made previously) added to the bill. That omnibus bill is online here. It is being taken up this Wednesday and Thursday. And comes after the senate just recently passed a bold and comprehensive criminal justice reform bill. Lots of progressive action going on right now.

Remember to Vote and Bylaw Results

Please make sure that your friends know about the vote coming up for Cape Cod Tech RHS on Tuesday October 24th from Noon to 8pm.

The CIDC General Membership meeting was a great success. Over 30 members from many towns crowded into the CapeSpace meeting room to hear our Congressman Bill Keating and vote on the new Bylaws.

Rather than give a speech, Congressman Bill Keating spent close to an hour answering the group's questions. The questions covered the spectrum from taxes, women’s rights, foreign affairs, health care, and climate change. It was a great opportunity to learn more about what is going on in the Capitol and share concerns with our Congressman.

After Congressman Keating, there was an opportunity for local candidates to introduce themselves and talk about their races and to learn about the signature gathering which is happening for ballot initiatives in 2018.

The new Bylaws were approved unanimously. The Bylaws create a more active, involved organization whose aim is to work to get candidates elected up and down the ballot, even at the local level. 

Please forward this email on to your friends or print a copy to share at meetings.  If you are getting this list forwarded on to you and you want to subscribe, please go to http://capeandislandsdemocrats.com/contact-us

Tuesday, Oct. 24th at 7:00 pm @ the Wellfleet Library, the Board will be discussing the future of the former COA Building. This town-owned building has sat abandoned for a very long time. Kathleen Bacon believes that there is already an interest from several department heads to use it for more municipal office space.

She wants to assign it to the housing authority to develop either into workforce community living space or into a 40b duplex. Wellfleet is woefully behind in creating affordable housing. She is looking for concerned citizens to join her in discussing the future uses of the building. 

Mashpee Commons is planning to expand. Projects of this magnitude will impact the character of the town.It is IMPERATIVE that our community members make every effort to attend the series of workshops and public meetings hosted by the "Mashpee Commons By Design" proponents listed below:

October Events & Bylaw Voting Update

We're entering the home stretch for the CIDC Bylaw revisions, a few ballot initiatives, and the Nov 7th elections.  Please also make sure that your friends know about the vote coming up for Cape Cod Tech RHS on October 24th.

 

We also have good news in the approval by the MA House and Senate of an additional $5.3 million in state funds (through the Mass. School Building Authority) for the Cape Cod Regional Technical High School building project.  This additional contribution from the state will save Cape taxpayers nearly $10 million on this potential project when taking into account the interest that would accrue to the towns.  This increase is on top of the approximate $41 million the Mass. School Building Authority had already committed to the project. This success is the result of the collaboration of the Cape and Islands legislative delegation - the critical champion on this was Rep. Sarah Peake. - from Julian Cyr.
