State representatives hold event on stopping drug abuse

WAPAKONETA — State representatives Tony Burkley and Jim Buchy gathered today for a discussion about how to help adults addicted to drugs and how to keep children from starting to use drugs.

Many companies have jobs that need filled, said Burkley, but have a difficult time finding people to hire for two reasons: those applying don’t have the necessary skills or those applying fail the drug test.

“West Central Ohio is the best place to live in the world,” Buchy said, which he believes is because of the large amount of nuclear families and the school districts. Buchy encouraged people to succeed here and to help future generations succeed as well.
