Email to Susan Bonamici, U.S. Representative from Oregon

The Surgeon General has identified addiction as a primary public health challenge. In the past 10 years @ Laura’s Pledge we have secured 315 Sobriety pledges from courageous teens. Joseph Califano Jr’s 3 decades plus of CASA work through Columbia University suggest that these youngsters will avoid the addictive path which consumes 10% or over 40 million Americans. 1079 Recovery champions celebrate 18,800 clean & sober years on our Sobriety Anniversary webpage. What are you currently doing at the national level to reverse the addiction public health crisis? Smoking, drinking & drug abuse cause annual medical complications resulting in the preventable deaths of over 100,000 Americans. How may I work with your office to be a more effective addiction prevention and recovery champion in Portland Oregon?

Please review our website & please respond.

Sincerely, Brad Mersereau
