We need to make sure that local home-owners aren’t left shouldering the burden of rebuilding our wastewater infrastructure alone.
Nothing is more critical to the future of our region than guaranteeing access to attainable housing for our young and working population.
In order to grow our economy, we need to invest in infrastructure that makes it possible for working people to see a future on the Cape
We must mitigate the dangers of rising sea-levels, increasingly severe storms, and warming temperatures on our homes and communities.
Mental Health and Addiction
No other issue is as much a question of life and death as the way in which we respond to the effects of opioid addiction in our community.
I am Dan Gessen, and I’m honored to serve as Falmouth’s representative in the Barnstable County Assembly of Delegates, overseeing our regional Cape Cod government.
My family arrived in America as refugees, and I was fortunate to be born and raised in Falmouth, graduating from Falmouth High in 2018. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst with a degree in Political Science, Public Administration, and Military Leadership, earning my commission as an Army National Guard Officer.*
My upbringing, steeped in my family’s experiences, instilled a deep appreciation for the opportunities and freedoms we enjoy in the United States, motivating my commitment to serve both my nation and my community.
My journey into local government began with internships for our U.S. Senator and participation in several local campaigns, connecting with thousands of Cape Cod residents. These experiences taught me the significant positive impact that local government can have on our community, if it’s executed by energetic and motivated individuals.
I firmly believe that those with a genuine desire to do good can always find common ground. I am here to learn, listen, and seek cooperation on our region’s pressing issues. I am passionate about guaranteeing a future for all Cape Codders in the place we call home.
