During my 2017 mayoral campaign, I have been very concerned with the rise of overdoses and deaths due to opioid addiction in our community. That’s why I was proud to work with Mayor Herrin on her Opioid Task Force from day one. Nationwide, the opioid epidemic has only gotten worse since the pandemic. Last night, we had a discussion with local advocates about addiction and recovery in our community. Featuring a Narcan training by Ethan Healy, and stories from Liz Tankel and Kevin Patrick Kelly of The Mayor’s Opioid Action Task Force.
