We will post the responses that we get from all of the individuals that received our email asking for their support of our proposed resolution addressing the “supply” side of the drug problem impacting all of the residents of Lake County.
Here is the response from our Lake County Recorder, Ms. Becky Lynch. We thank her for her prompt reply, support, and kind words.

…Here you go
I’m very willing to show support for the items you have presented and hope that the Board of Commissioners will hear and consider your proposal for a resolution. Here are some extra notes and thoughts (in red) and keep up the good work!
“It would be greatly appreciated if you could reply to this email, and let us know either way if you support, or do not support the three initiatives that we believe will go a long way in solving the “supply side” part of our drug problem in Lake County.”
In RE the three points;
- Ensure that all legal measures are taken to prevent pharmaceutical companies and doctors from dispensing and over prescribing addictive pain killing and psychotropic drugs, except for those in chronic pain,–
Question: How can Lake County prevent this? It is something which is determined on a case by case basis. There is wholly imbalance as evidenced by the deaths due to overdose. I support ‘all legal measures are taken’ as they pertain to the process of equal justice under the law for all.
- Prevent the trafficking of illegal drugs by building a physical barrier on the Southern border between Mexico and the United States,–
NO QUESTION. Walls work.
3. Recommend that all Lake County law enforcement agencies support the drug enforcement efforts of all federal agencies including the Drug Enforcement Agency and the Department of Homeland Security.–
This, I believe is already being followed.
Thanks for all your efforts and hard work!
