In September 2015 Congressmen Joseph P Kennedy III spoke at the Orpheum Theater in Chatham. Congressman Kennedy spoke on public service and why it is important. Join us on March 7, 2016 for a screening of the lecture. Admission is free.
Representing the Massachusetts 4th Congressional District in Washington, Kennedy has deep roots on the Cape. In addition to his childhood summers in Hyannis Port, he worked as an assistant district attorney for the Cape and Islands, where, he said, he saw “how the law works and how it struggles.” Judge Brian Merrick, who retired as First Justice of Orleans District Court, asked Kennedy about his path to Congress. “The best thing anyone who is in politics can do is just be authentic,” Kennedy said.
