Take a moment to read this letter to the editor from Sheila Place.
I have known Julian Cyr for a number of years, and seen firsthand the energy and commitment he brings to everything, and I proudly support him for state Senate for the Cape and Islands in the Sept. 8 primary.
A Cape Cod native, Julian benefited greatly from growing up in his family’s restaurant business, and his goal is to make that kind of opportunity available to other families. His more recent experience at the State House, in increasingly responsible positions, makes him uniquely suited to be our next state senator. Julian knows the Cape’s issues, from the opioid crisis to homelessness, affordable housing, wastewater and our fragile environment, and he knows how to get things done at the state level. He will bring a record of accomplishment, along with youth and vision to our state Senate district.
This primary is one of the most important elections we face, and I want to make sure the best-qualified person will represent the Cape and Islands in the state Senate. I don’t believe Sheila Lyons is that person, based on her record as a county commissioner. Public service should not be a guarantee of a promotion without demonstrable accomplishments.
