Alex Morash Tours Start Up Space
April 14th 2014
“I have heard of business incubators and collaborative workspaces and am interested in seeing Cape Cod have one of it’s own. Being able to tour these facilities gives me a better understand of the importance of these spaces”.
The tour included the main work space, a mini cafe with art gallery, lounge and meeting room space. Individuals can purchase a monthly membership for $20 and pay $2 an hour to use the space or pay $200 a month for unlimited access.
Collaborative work spaces and business incubators are shared work spaces that allow start ups and small business to have a low cost work space.

In memory of my mother
August 4th 2014
On August 4th 2012 my mother Kathleen Scarlet-Morash passed away after a three year battle with breast cancer. Honoring my mother’s memory by doing good works is a major drive in the campaign and my life. In honor of her memory I want to take today to ask my friends and supporters take a moment to combat the disease. First check to make sure you and your loved ones are up to date on your cancer screenings, secondly I would ask you to take the time to help two wonderful organizations fighting for the women, men and families struggling with this disease.
These two organizations work tirelessly to help our community. One with a focus on helping the community and the other is focused on prevention. Both organizations are truly amazing and need our support!
Morash Discusses Plan to Expand Public Transit
July 18th 2014
Alex Morash had a guest column in the Cape Cod Times discussing the need to expand public transit, instead of building a toll bridge to Cape Cod. One project Alex Morash is a strong supporter of is expanding the commuter rail to Bourne and then having an additional expansion to the Hyannis transportation center and a commuter parking station in Yarmouth off of Exit 7.
In the piece Alex states “Constructing a toll bridge at the Cape Cod Canal is poor planning on the part of the state. Cape Cod's car traffic has increased dramatically over the past three decades. We now have more drivers on the road off-season than there were during peak summer traffic in the 1980s and 1990s. Adding a third auto bridge with tolls will add to our traffic woes and penalize the roughly 10,000 residents who commute off-Cape to work.”
