I would like to express my appreciation to our local Representative, Joel Krautter, who helped me in my work as a youth advocate against the new epidemic of nicotine addiction, vaping. Thankfully Rep. Krautter has supported anti-vaping legislation, and also hand-delivered my letters to our Federal Senators and House Representative about the need for legislation to raise the tobacco age to 21, which passed last fall. Especially now, as vaping has been linked to higher coronavirus infection rates, I am glad that not all politicians are under the influence of big tobacco.
