Senator Dan Wolf has decided not to seek re-election.
The news, announced several weeks ago, made me sad. This week local reporters made some sense of the decision. Do read Matt Murphy's article in The Register to better understand Wolf's motivations. Our marvelous senator, seen above at a Pilgrim protest with Chief of Staff Seth Rolbein of Wellfleet, is the type of politician our country needs, one who stands up to power and fights for citizens and the environment. I was glad to see the Senator does not rule out future service in government. Cape Codders can look forward to Wolf's future contributions, which will take a different form.
