Suffolk County Health & Human Services / Opioid Crisis

Our youth are our future, and we cannot continue to let the opioid crisis and other tragedies rob us of our future.

Suffolk County should look to hire more Child Protective Services personnel and fill critical staffing gaps. As Legislator I would support the relocation of the MLK Jr. Health Center to Wyandanch Rising, providing the community with a better, modern space for healthcare. The County also faces challenges providing care to minority communities in need, especially when it comes to opioids and drug addiction. I would make minority health a priority and work with advocates to reach underserved communities.
