I am extremely honored to endorse Mike Nerheim for re-election as Lake County State’s Attorney. He is a man of integrity and honor and has accomplished a great deal in his first four years.
As the founder of the Jordan Michael Filler Foundation, and as a father directly impacted by the Opioid Epidemic, I am incredibly impressed by Mike’s unbelievable passion in the fight against this life shattering disease. During his first term, Mike’s caring nature, tremendous leadership, dedication, and tireless work ethic, led him to create many highly successful initiatives to fight substance abuse in Lake County. I have worked directly with Mike and seen firsthand that he spends days, nights, and weekends trying to help people (and their families) with substance abuse and addiction issues.
His “A Way Out” program provides treatment to any Lake County resident suffering from addiction. The Naloxone program (naloxone is an antidote that reverses the deathly impact of an opioid overdose) he initiated for all first responders throughout Lake County already saved 118 lives and counting! This would not have happened without his leadership. The Lake County Opioid Initiative he co-founded promotes a countywide, multi-strategy effort to prevent addiction, overdose and death. I can’t imagine anyone being more compassionate, authentic, or dedicated to this incredibly important cause.
Mike works tirelessly for all of the people of Lake County and deserves another four years to help build upon his many successes thus far. I’ll be voting for Mike and I hope you will too.
