Letter to the Editor: Join Madison County Coroner Steve Nonn and Rachelle Aud Crowe in fighting the opioid epidemic
The following Letter to the Editor appeared on Riverbender.com on October 3 from Madison County Coroner Steve Nonn:
A few weeks ago, Channel 5 highlighted how the opioid epidemic is continuing to wreak havoc across our region.
Between 2013 and 2016, Illinois recorded a 70 percent jump in opioid overdose deaths. Madison and St. Clair Counties were singled out in this report as being at the center of this epidemic. We need our political leaders to understand the gravity of the situation and work to implement multi-layered solutions to this crisis.
I am proud to say Rachelle Aud Crowe is one of those leaders.
My campaign manager and daughter, Brynn, put together this book describing the campaign from her perspective as my daughter.
