Local Mayors Sign Letter To POTUS And Congress

A half-dozen Western Massachusetts  mayors are asking President Trump to repeal and replace a law from last  year that they say has hamstrung the Drug Enforcement Administration  from dealing with the opioid crisis.  

Specifically, the letter sent to  the president and Congress on Wednesday calls for the re-establishment  of the DEA's enforcement authority to allow it to deal with illegal  corporate drug activity, and the appointment of a drug czar.  

Twenty-seven mayors from the commonwealth attached their signature to  the letter, including Richard Cohen of Agawam,  William Martin of  Greenfield, Richard Alcombright of North Adams, Linda Tyelr of  Pittsfield, Domenic Sarno of Springfield, and William Reichelt of West  Springfield.
