Napolitano says, “I am passionate about my community and doing the right thing for the right reasons.” Napolitano said that if elected she would concentrate on “combating the heroin and opioid epidemic that is ravaging our youth and our community.” Napolitano said, “We need to be very aggressive and proactive in prevention, first, and we will accomplish that through education starting in our elementary schools and continuing up to the high school level.” Napolitano continued, “We also need to have treatment facilities and resources available when someone is serious about recovery.” Napolitano said, “I also want to talk about the corruption that’s going on countywide and my commitment to a transparent government that consists of public servants rather than self-serving politicians.”
