DELRAY BEACH, Fla. (CBS12) — A Delray Beach attorney’s push to combat the growing opioid epidemic in the city is causing concern.
Attorney Jeffrey Lynne sent an email last week inviting the city and the residents to the Recovery Business Council’s first meeting, focusing that the group would assist in making “Delray Beach the ‘Recovery Capital once again.’”
He is not up in arms with city officials.
“Let’s make it what it once was as oppose to what it has become,” Lynne said.
He told CBS12 why he believes the move is being taken out of context.
“Rather than staying underground and being quiet about it, we were a little bit open about it, and I just rattled some people during the sensitive times so great,” Lynne said.
