The Vote for Kids campaign surveyed candidates running for election in the New York State Senate and the New York State Assembly to answer questions about issues affecting Westchester’s children and youth.
The initiative by the independent, nonpartisan organization Westchester Children’s Association (WCA) aims to elevate Westchester’s children and youth to the top of the public agenda among candidates, elected officials, media and the general public during the upcoming elections.
This is a non-partisan effort; WCA does not support or oppose any candidate for public office. They understand that voters do and should make decisions based on a variety of qualifications that go beyond responses to any one questionnaire.
With children representing 24 percent of the country’s population and 100 percent of its future, WCA said it’s essential to make sure that candidates address significant issues that affect the state’s and the nation’s children. Vote for Kids provides tools to help who are a child advocate, parent, caretaker or community member, keep children’s issues at the forefront of this election cycle.
