Breaking News: Maura Healey will be coming to Worcester Tonight, according to her website:
Looking to discuss the impact of substance use on families, and provide support for grandparents and other kinship caregivers raising children, Attorney General Maura Healey has joined with the Commission on the Status of Grandparents Raising Grandchildren in holding eight town halls throughout the state this fall.
With the rapid rise in opioid use and opioid-related deaths in recent years, there has been a dramatic increase in the number of grandparent and kinship caregivers stepping up to raise children who have been impacted by this crisis. Between 2010 and 2015, the number of children cared for by relatives in Massachusetts has increased by more than 50 percent.
During these town halls, the Commission and the AG’s Office will hear from grandparents and other caregivers about how substance use has impacted their lives and the children they are raising, and learn about the issues that are important to them. The AG’s Office and the Commission will also provide resources for treatment and family support services, and share information about the work the offices are doing to combat the opioid epidemic.
Fall 2016 town halls will be held on the following dates:
There you have it. Maura Healey is gonna be in the hood from 6-8 PM tonight to discuss the opiate epidemic. This Turtleboy can’t make it down there at this time, but if you want to ask her about why she is supporting Moses Dixon, despite this:
Then we’d really appreciate if you recorded it and sent it to us. Even just a brief little, “Any comment about your support for Moses Dixon now that it’s public knowledge that he was charged with assault and battery on a woman?” Does she know about this yet? Is she going to try to pretend like it never happened? Who knows. Maybe if she finds out she’ll have no choice but to distance herself from him. Either way, she needs to answer the question and she’s coming to Worcester tonight. Now is your chance to hold her accountable. If you ask her on video and send it to us you get a free Turtleboy Sports hooded sweatshirt.
We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.
