Representative Rob Van Moellecum: Where people live and work has a huge impact on health. Exposure, for example, to air pollution or possibilities for exercise and recreation are also of great importance. As a county, it is our priority to offer our residents a healthy and safe living environment. We can’t do it alone, we really need our partners for it.
