A year ago, I attended a rally on the matter of drug overdoses. Both my election opponents attended. Call it political...Call it concern...Call it being responsive....I like to think all three of were looking to learn how government could respond better.
Someone ask me at the event if I wanted to be trained in the administration of Narcan, a drug that can arrest the effects of an overdose.
you were asked if you wanted to be trained, not necessarily as the Mayor but as a business owner of a Bar and your response was "i don't have those kind of people in my bar" So ignorant then and now. This just clarifies for me that you are not worthy of being mayor-Anonymous
I declined as I don't encounter those situations and I feel uncomfortable administering such a drug to someone I don't know and don't know the situation.
Today the person I talked to chose to breach that conversation and write in the comment section how terrible I am and that declining the Narcan instruction is why I was unfit to be mayor.
At the time I was courteous to the request and yesterday was happy to host guests on the HOTLINE to discuss the issue of overdoses.
Seven people have died this month, and I wonder whether the issue is well served by anonymous people trying to excoriate people who are attending an event and expressing concern.
