In 2016 King County Executive Dow Constantine and Mayor's Ed Murray (Seattle), Nancy Backus (Auburn) and Denis Law (Renton) convened the Heroin and Prescription Opiate Addiction Task Force. This group was comprised of experts across multiple disciplines to recommend actions to address the opiate epidemic in King County. They focused on prevention, increasing access to treatment on demand, and reducing the number of fatal overdoses. The task force had 8 recommendations which were passed by the Board of Health in 2017. I was an alternate to the Board of Health in 2017. I did NOT vote unless a member of the Sound Cities Organization was absent. Therefore I did not vote on this issue.
I DO NOT SUPPORT SAFE INJECTION SITES AND NEVER HAVE.
This is the full report from the task force:
As a Board Member of King County Public Health, I asked Director Patty Hayes to respond to the questions of the Public Health Vans that people are noticing in Federal Way. This is her response.
