Angela Taylor, Montgomery County

“I’m very interested in how we can resolve this opioid issue. It concerns me about the effect it is having on our community.”

Al Ralston, associate pastor of United Brethren Church in Dayton

“I’m here to see if I can be of help in the drug problem we have here. What we want to do is be part of the solution.”

Paul Kladitis, Clayton

“People need to understand right from wrong….I would like to see top leadership of the city seeking God.”

Montgomery County Sheriff Phil Plummer

“It’s a fentanyl epidemic.”

Clayton Councilman Kenny Henning

“It saddens me that so many people have to be in that comfortably numb state. (We need to) figure out why people don’t love their life.”
