Roman Vardanega has been in the county jail for five months, and his mother, Tanya Tilghman, stood on the steps of City Hall on Sunday begging that he be let there.
“If they release my son, he will die and be one of those pictures on the steps,” Tilghman told a crowd of about 150 gathered on National Fentanyl Prevention and Awareness Day. It also marked the first anniversary of Mothers Against Drug Deaths, a Bay Area coalition formed by women whose children are either on the streets or have died of drug overdoses.
