  1. I commend anyone who recovers from addiction. Personally, I’d rather see focus turned on taking down the global criminal syndicate reponsible and profiteering from the drug trade. We know who they are – is there anyone with guts enough to take them down?

  2. Ericka has walked thru the fire, that’s just the kind of person we need in Washington!

  3. Ericka is a very impressive person. It appeared to me that she had connections with many people. I met her a couple years ago at the State House when I was participating in a Convention of States informational meeting.
