As someone who has witnessed first-hand how opioid consumption changed the course of life of a close friend, a young actor with a promising career, I would like to see the next mayor of NYC address the opioid crisis. After talking to friends, family members, and neighbors, I have realized that everyone knows at least a loved one who has suffered from the opioid epidemic, thus addressing this problem is imperative. I understand that solving this multi-level problem requires different layers of the government to come together. I hope that the next mayor can unite all the forces to overcome the opioid crisis.
