Focusing on identifying, educating, preventing, and controlling the use and impact of dangerous substances in our community, ChooseNotToUse works primarily with youth. We want Scott County to continue to be a livable, healthy, and safe community, and that means we are committed to reducing the financial and health impact on users, law enforcement, schools, government agencies, and families.
“As Scott County Attorney, I see firsthand the effects that illegal drug use has on law enforcement, government agencies, our communities and our citizens,” said County Attorney Ron Hocevar. “It is the goal of ChooseNotToUse to educate and inform our youth about the dangers of illegal drug use and the negative impact it has on those that use. We all make choices in life and our hope is that you will choose not to use.”
The new website is Choosenottouse.org. ChooseNotToUse is funded solely through donations and by itsonly fundraiser -- Tee It Up for the Task Force -- which will be held on September 9, 2016 at Stonebrooke Golf Course in Shakopee. If you would like to donate or receive further information about our fundraiser, please contact Kathy Welter at (952) 239-6885 or via e-mail at [email protected].
The ChooseNotToUse partnership is co-chaired by Ron Hocevar, Scott County Attorney; Kevin Studnicka, Scott County Sheriff; Barbara Marschall, Scott County Commissioner; and Kathy Welter, Crime and Drug Prevention Coordinator.
