She joins Christine Drazan for a roundtable on Measure 110 next week
SALEM, OR – This week, the Joint Committee on Addiction and Community Safety Response heard from law enforcement professionals about Oregon’s current public safety response to the drug addiction crisis. It reaffirmed that Measure 110 has severely restricted their ability to keep communities safe and has allowed for crime and open drug use to run rampant on our streets.
“Hearing directly from both law enforcement officials and public health providers while sitting on this committee in recent weeks has only reinforced that Measure 110 has failed us, and it is time to make a change,” said Representative Goodwin (R-Canyonville), who sits on the joint committee. “Oregonians believed Measure 110 would connect those suffering with addiction to sustainable treatment and that has not been the case. Meanwhile, community safety has steadily declined by tying the hands of law enforcement. We should be taking immediate action and do what is necessary – repeal Measure 110 and move forward with solutions that will make a real impact on the drug addiction crisis.”
“Next week, I will join Christine Drazan and others in Portland, ground zero of our addiction, crime, and homelessness crises, to further this conversation,” concluded Goodwin.
