Vision, Issues, & Values

Berks County’s Opioid Coalition SOS Berks

I have been the Co-Chair of Berks’ Opioid Coalition for about 3 years since its’ creation. We have branded ourselves as SOS Berks. We have been working with the Pennsylvania Opioid Overdose Reduction Technical Assistance Center through University of Pittsburgh, School of Pharmacy.

Kevin’s Position on Public Libraries in Berks

Berks County has provided a significant amount of tax dollars to support the efforts of our member libraries while other funding sources have diminished. I thank the member boards and employees for their efforts to stretch a dollar to provide this important community service.


I plan to set the record straight regarding my stance on the issue of privatizing the Berks County Jail. I AM TOTALLY AGAINST THE PRIVATIZATION OF THE COUNTY JAIL and have said so consistently from the onset.


It is clear to me that many folks in the community see a headline or news clip that states, “The Commissioners” and often assume that it’s the collective decision of the entire board regarding many decisions made about the future of the Heim.
