I will work to provide support to families struggling to recover from addiction. Did you know that at least 10% of the children our district are being raised by family members other than their parents? Children are the often-overlooked victims of the drug crisis. The grandparents and family members who assume the responsibilities of an absent parent do not receive the same level of support or financial aid as foster parents. I will work to make sure that caregivers and parents have the resources they need to help their families cope with and recover from addiction.
