Timely Information

Thursday, April 27, 2017

Dear Neighbors,

No, this is not Monday and time for my usual weekly update but I have some timely information that I thought you may be interested in.

Measles Outbreak

You may have heard about the recent Measles’ outbreaks in the news.  The Minnesota Department of Health is currently investigating these cases in Hennepin County children.  You can read more information from the Minnesota Department of Human Services outlining symptoms, prevention, etc. here.

For more information on measles and for updates as the investigation continues, please visit the Minnesota Department of Health website at

National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day

Minnesotans can dispose of unwanted prescription medicine anonymously and for free this Saturday at dozens of sites around the state. To find a site near you click on Dose of Reality webpage on the Minnesota Attorney General’s website.

If I can provide any assistance, please feel free to reach out to my office at 651-296-9889 or you can certainly email me at

Thank you,
