Your DGB for today is to tweet Bill Keating (D-MA-9) and let him know you’re concerned about the future of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
Recently, the Trump administration ordered a halt to the Cape Cod National Seashore Advisory Commission, which has overseen the management of the 44,000 acre preserved land since 1961. While the organization does not make policy, their oversight is a layer of protection for the forty miles of unspoiled beaches, marshes, and cultural landmarks. Under Trump, and Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke, the conservation of public lands is, at best, a low priority. At worst, our federal government could be moving toward land transfer deals and commercial interests in some of the places that truly make our country great.
Congressman Keating is a Democrat and a conservationist, so we just need to let him know that we care and there will be public pressure to help him preserve the beautiful open spaces in his district.
.@USRepKeating We won’t stand for the suspension of the CCNS Advisory Commission or the deprioritizing of public lands. #ProtectTheCape
