Cape Air working with NASA

on Electric Powered Aircraft

NASA: Electric-Propulsion X-Plane Is Just First Step

The research agency has approved a three-year, $15 million project to fly a distributed electric propulsion (DEP) X-plane. The demonstrator will be based on a light general-aviation aircraft but, if the technology proves out, NASA has aggressive plans to follow up with a nine-seat commuter demonstrator that could pave the way for a 60-90-seat hybrid-electric regional airliner.

Re: Why Would We Want Dan Hoort as Our Town Manager?

Many voters and Residents are Shaking Their Heads

They cannot believe we are left with what we are left with for town manager. Whoever is saying that Hoort will not be Town Manager must be kidding themselves. He is there, my friends, as one of two. He is not only in a pool of 51 people, it is between him and one other person. Please, don't even go to the shill. You don't know who is the real shill here. You have two and this just brings up all the past shenanigans, all the past deceits, all the past threats. What an unprofessional search committee. this causes me to lose faith in this town when it comes to trying to have a better and different future.

Re: Why Would We Want Dan Hoort as Our Town Manager?

When You Are Chair--and Andrews Was chair--of the Hiring Committee

You are responsible for who is selected. The end result rests in your lap. As Chair, you cannot blame others or anyone else but you.

This is the end of the line for Andrews if Hoort goes into the front position. she will be blamed by me and by many others who are sickened by this process and this choice.

Of all the people--this is what we are left with--Dan Hoort as a possible and actual town manager. what a sick joke on the town.

East End Playground/Basketball Court

Over the last few years I have been one of the many who have posted here but one of the few who have had the testicle fortitude to add my name to all of my postings.

In the ones I did and read from others, many more seem to be geared towards the negative side while very few were positive. And yes I have participated in both.

However, I would like to be what I believe to be the first to come on here and compliment those (whoever they were or are), for such great work on the east end basketball court. It has never looked as good as it does now and I have lived here for at least 45 years.

Job well done...

"and now this rather questionable individual is in line to be Provincetown's town manager?"



OMG, where did you come up with "in-line"?  Thia is not the UK where they have royalty "in-line" for the throne.  He has been listed as a possible hire, not probable.  He is NOT in line at all.

Re: Town Cemetery & DPW

I do not know if the leadership has changed since this happened, but they at one time were too lazy to mow and trim around the family plots that had granite curbs around them so they removed the curbs and dumped them at the sea wall near the harbour hotel on the far east end. They ignored the growth at the Winslow Street  Cemetery leading to the mess that we have now and the need to hire someone to fix it. The DPW also did such a poor job on the playground on the east end of Bradford they allowed weeds and scrub trees to grow un trimmed and the roots ruined the blacktop and the fencing causing us the taxpayers to spend over 50,000 dollars to fix it. THis why I strongly oppose the pier being put back under the auspices of the selectboard and DPW.

Re: Cheryl Andrews et Dan Hoort - WTF?

In defense of Cheryl Andrews and Tom Donegan, they cannot prevent anyone from applying for the Manager position. And they were NOT the majority on the hiring committee. Does anyone remember Tony Brackett? He was and still is a member in good standing with all of the previous administration and would love to see his old friend Hoort in this Manager job, as would anyone associated with the failed regime. Contact the Selectmen and let them know your feelings, and stop threatening to recall a Selectman who has always had the best interests of her town at heart. Hoort will not be the next town manager! Have faith, but keep yelling! Most of Provincetown agrees on that part.

Re: Cheryl Andrews et Dan Hoort - WTF?

"People in this town are upset, mad, disappointment and pissed off at Dan Hoort's name as a two person candidacy and those responsible will pay a huge price if he is "chosen."


People are extremely upset and view this choice as duplicitous and as lack of respect for the town."


Is you name sybel  do yoa have multiple personalities or are you just simlpy hoping?  People?  or you"  I am not upset or mad.   that is so Scalia-like.  A tantrum won't make it true.  Since when did it become illegal or immoral to apply for a job?  If he is chooses move on just like all those scum bag court clerks in Alabama and Mississippi should.  Grow up.  Stop with the hollow threats and silly posturing.

While I agree with you about the terrible prospect of that development I wonder why you don't think that maybe, just, maybe, the law is being followed.  We may not like the law, so lets change it, not blame the people we hire to fol

Why Would We Want Dan Hoort as Our town Manager?

It seems to me we already had Sharon Lynn and thus we had him as the vocal piece of her positions and threats. He did her dirty work, as well as Jeff Jaran's dirty work. and now this rather questionable individual is in line to be Provincetown's town manager?

This is pure insanity, pure madness.

And who is responsible for the insane decision?

Re: Cheryl Andrews et Dan Hoort - WTF?

I Totally Agree with the Disappointment and Anger at Cheryl Andrews

I did not know she was the Chair of the town Manager Committee but I am also disgusted with this choice of Hoort. With Hoort, we are opening the door and allowing all the past sins and terrible town players to return on his coattails--including his partner who posted for years as Jack Tracken and did harm to many in town.

This is a great suggestion. I would and will sign a recall  petition to recall andrews if ever this man is picked.

Re: 350 Bradford Street

I just saw the developer Wise and Mcgregor  and Gloria's new rendition of the proposed blight for the old Michael Shays 350 Bradford St. development. The new one is even bigger! They took the old drawing that was 45' high and added a 10' peaked roof on top so now it's 55' high!

Cheryl Andrews et Dan Hoort - WTF?


If Cheryl Andrews is the Chair of the town Manger Search committee and Tom Donnegan is a member

than I blame both of them for allowing---or encouraging--the name of Dan Hoort as two of the candidates to be considered for town manager. I consider this action deceitful in relation to their past words and suspicious. And if Dan Hoort becomes town manager, then Cheryl Andrews can kiss her behind goodbye. that will be the end of her career as selectman. and if Dan Hoort is "chosen" as the best candidate and becomes town manager, then there will be a recall against Cheryl Andrews for their major lapse of general trust. If Dan Hoort becomes town manager, the campaign to remove Cherlyl Andrews will begin fast and furiously.

People in this town are upset, mad, disappointment and pissed off at Dan Hoort's name as a two person candidacy and those responsible will pay a huge price if he is "chosen."

People are extremely upset and view this choice as duplicitous and as lack of respect for the town.

Town Cemetery & DPW

Maybe we should be concerned with why the town has sub contracted to have the cemetery taken care off by outside group. What is wrong with building and grounds and the rest of the DPW Department. The Catholic cemetery only has one man do the mowing plus do everything at the church. Maybe some jobs need to be cut or less time drinking coffee and just riding around. I think there should be GPS in town vecihles to track where they are at all time.

Re: Town Manager Candidate - Dan Hoort

If You're Wondering why Candyland is back in the news

it is because of Dan Hoort as a possible town manager. He was critically involved in constant e-mails from town hall to Candace Naagle and Candace Nagle constantly to Sharon Lynn and then to Jeff Jaran. You can read these e-mails and see Dan Hoort as part of this upsetting and problematic town group. Dan Hoort brings them all back and brings back his subversive and threatening behavior that we surely do not seed once again here as town manager. How he even made the cut is more than questionable and his possibility of being town manager is frightening.

Have we not learned anything from the Sharon Lynn and Jeff Jaran fiasco!

Yes, Yes, It is the Portuguese Festival'

And so much fun.  What a great night at the bas relief. the food was wonderful and the music amazing. Dance on and on. He was great and it was such a wonderful time. So amazing and so great. Yes, life is great, here in Provincetown.

Re: Town Manager Candidate - Dan Hoort

Here we go with the Candy Nagle         . Will the 4 people obsessed with her please give the rest of the town a break? It's really creepy, this belief that Nagle was trying to take over the town and harm it's citizens...or whatever the fear is. Irrational and warped. Give it up already.
