2014 Candidate Survey on Children’s Issues

Our children bring us together, regardless of party & ideology. Each election, our VOTE for KIDS initiative surveys candidates on their opinions regarding issues affecting Westchester’s children and youth. WCA does not support or oppose any candidate for public office. Read what specific actions candidates for NY State Governor, NY State Senate and NY State Assembly would take to address:

  • Early childhood education
  • 16- and 17- year olds who commit crimes
  • Economic security of families living in poverty
  • The availability of early childhood home visiting programs in Westchester
