Coming January 23: Addiction Information Resource Fair

The substance abuse problem in this country, state, region, county and even city is real … and we think education is one of the ways we’ll solve it.

A program planned for January 23 at the South Milwaukee Performing Arts Center is a great step. Mark your calendars!

I thank all of the planning partners — the South Milwaukee Unite Against Drug Abuse Coalition — for their work on this event. It will make a difference, starting with me.

As the parent of two young children, I look forward to learning more about substance abuse, and sharing that information in the community. I encourage you to do the same.

We will only solve this by working together. It starts now.

    I would like to thank the Mayor for taking a proactive approach to the drug issue. The drug issue is in every community, but some try to down play it. I hope the school board takes note and repeats this presentation for the school kids during school hours. I would also hope the fire department takes a active roll in the fair, to present what is done, in case of a overdose. Unfortunately, a South Milwaukee person, that was known by both my children ,overdosed and his friends did not call for help out of fear. He died this past August.
