THE MAIN ISSUES
1. Declare war on drug dealers and pushers.

sentences for their crimes.
c. Those that are drug dependent, create programs that help them overcome their
d. Create and maintain programs for those that are incarcerated.
2. Create, if possible, a Multi-Jurisdictional Task Force (partner) with Pennsylvania and Delaware
to deal with the dealers and pushers of drugs before coming to Cecil County.
3. Educate Parents and Teachers of the signs to be aware of for those young adults that may be
entering the drug world.
