30% budget cuts but shift to drug addiction and recovery
Every dollar spent in the budget is a choice. Past budget cuts had serious consequences. An aging population, more mental health and drug addiction problems, and increasing childhood poverty are straining our capacity to respond. Addiction recovery,
increasing mental health provider payments, caring for our elders and disabled and prenatal outreach are all changes I choose to make in the health budget. Moving administrative functions in-house rather than out-sourcing would cut costs by 30%.
