Mayor Miro Weinberger Statement in Response to Apparent Drug Overdoses

“Today’s tragic news of two overdose deaths in Burlington underscores the need to maintain our focus on opiate addiction. This is a statewide challenge, and the news today in our City further highlights the importance of continued increases in treatment options and public health approaches to addiction and drug abuse, as well as robust enforcement and prosecution of those who traffic narcotics in our neighborhoods.”
