Cyr brings to the plate ingenuity and energy

Thank you to Kathy Schatzberg, President emeritus of Cape Cod Community College for submitting this letter to the editor.

Julian Cyr has my vote for state Senate in the Sept. 8 primary, and in the November general election. I am confident he is the best candidate to fill Dan Wolf’s big shoes in the Senate.

Cyr has proved he knows how to get things done in Boston for the Cape and Islands. His strong track record includes, to mention just a few, accomplishments on the environment (e.g., Pilgrim Nuclear decommissioning); health care (preventive medicine and the opioid crisis); and education (anti-bullying and youth development).

At his website,, Cyr provides detailed proposals and commitments in these areas and many others, including business development, school funding, senior services, affordable housing and more. These policy statements demonstrate the deep thinking and creative solutions that will characterize his work in the Senate for our region.

His youth is an asset too. With a growing older population and a decline in numbers of younger residents, it is time for us elders to hand the reins over to the next generation. Cyr will represent us in the Senate with ingenuity and energy. Join me in voting for Cyr.

Kathleen Schatzberg
