I commend President Trump for stepping up to the challenge of combating the growing opioid epidemic and declaring a public health emergency.
Right now, right here in Pennsylvania, we are losing almost 100 of our neighbors each week to opioid abuse. This is unacceptable. The opioid crisis is getting worse by the day and we need the type of leadership President Trump is providing to turn things around.
Earlier this year, I outlined my plan to address the opioid scourge that is enveloping our Commonwealth. Sadly, Governor Wolf has failed to show progress, leadership, and a sense of urgency during his three years in office. The CDC declared this an epidemic six years ago. Pennsylvania families deserve better than they are receiving from our Governor, and that is why I am running to lead in Harrisburg.
