• Chairman Whitbeck Applauds GOP Ticket Policy Plan to Combat Opioid Epidemic

    RPV Chairman John Whitbeck issued the following statement:

    “Every portion of the Commonwealth of Virginia has been impacted by the deeply personal, destructive affects of the opioid and mental health crisis we are now facing. This silent crisis is tearing apart families, leaving lasting emotional scars on children across Virginia and the rest of the country. It is time that our elected officials provide a clear focus on this important issue.”

    “The policy proposals include: education and prevention training for law enforcement, tackling drug trafficking, and providing support through employment and recovery meetings for addicts, as well as many other positive focused opportunities. I applaud the work of our nominees: Ed Gillespie, Jill Vogel, and John Adams on their plans to combat the opioid epidemic and enhance mental health services. Their complimentary plans are what the Commonwealth needs to combat the crisis.”
