Oliv­e­rio a needed ad­vo­cate for the se­verely men­tally ill

The Mercury News Weekend - - OPINION - — Paul Boehm, San Jose

Pier­luigi Oliv­e­rio has a strong record of sup­port­ing the se­verely men­tally ill.

He sup­ports Laura’s Law, the law that would com­pel peo­ple with schizophre­nia and other se­vere men­tal ill­nesses to be housed in a locked fa­cil­ity that pro­vides the 21st- cen­tury ther­a­peu­tic ser­vices that places such as Agnews De­vel­op­men­tal Cen­ter lacked.

With­out Laura’s Law, peo­ple in need will con­tinue to live in the squalor of the street.

If you truly care for the se­verely men­tally ill, please vote for Pier­luigi Oliv­e­rio for the Dis­trict 4 seat on the Santa Clara County Board of Su­per­vi­sors.
