Coaltion meets to discuss officer nominations

GEORGETOWN – The Coalition for a Drug Free Brown County held their monthly meeting at the Educational Services Center on Hamer Road in Georgetown. Nomination and terms of service were on the agenda for the organization.

The Coalition nominated Sue McKinley to serve as president, Dallas Barber to serve as vice-president, and Becky Cropper to serve as secretary. The president and vice-president will serve one year terms while the secretary will serve a two year term.

Voting for officers will take place during the next scheduled meeting on April 4 at 6 pm at the Educational Services Center. Nominations are still open for anyone who was not in attendance during the March meeting. They are asked to contact Deborah Otten or Deana Vietze.

The meeting schedule has one announced change. The May meeting has been moved to the second Monday of the month to accommodate the Opiate Conference in Columbus during the week. Otten and Vietze encouraged anyone interested in attending to visit their website to find out more information.

Only one committee reported back to the Coalition. The supply reduction committee gave their report for the month. Lake Waynoka Chief of Police Gordon Ellis returned news from the Chief of Police meeting on ways to reduce supplies of drugs for Brown County. He and the other Chiefs came up with eight measures for reducing supply for drugs in Brown County. Those included drug interdiction along highways and other roadways by use of canines, making sure officers know where and what departments have canine units available at any given time, development cooperation with neighboring drug task forces, train drug recognition experts, identify high volume areas, add additional drug drop boxes and publicize them, educate local doctors on the dangers of prescribed medications, and continue to resist efforts to legalize marijuana as it is a gateway drug.

On a much lighter note, the Coalition has announced their contest for a logo to each of the county schools in grades 7-12. The Coalition decided that the top three from each school would be entered into the contest for the Art Fair sponsored by the Brown County Educational Services during the last week of April.

The next Coalition meeting is scheduled for April 4 at the Brown County Educational Services Building on Hamer Road in Georgetown at 6 p.m. Prior to the Coalition meeting the youth coalition will also meet on April 4 but at 5 p.m. in the Educational Services Center.

Sue McKinley and Becky Cropper received nominations from the Coalition for a Drug Free Brown County to serve the offices of President (McKinley) and Secretary (Cropper). Voting will take place at the next scheduled meeting on April 4 at the Educational Services Center on Hamer Road in Georgtown.
