Kids can’t vote, so we have to vote for them. The Children’s Agenda invites candidates in city, county, state, and federal elections to answer nonpartisan questionnaires about problems facing Monroe County’s children and youth—and the policy and funding solutions they require from our elected officials. Together with issue briefings, candidate forums, and communications with voters, we work to keep kids’ issues top-of-mind among candidates and public officials, the media, and voters alike.

County Executive and County Legislative Questionnaire Results

Outcomes in children’s health, education and well-being are broadly affected by public policies and government action and inaction.   Each election season, we ask candidates to share their positions and perspectives on these issues with The Children’s Agenda and our 4,000+ supporters in every district throughout Monroe County.    The questionnaire serves to assess and expand candidates’ knowledge of solutions to childhood poverty, increase awareness of issues surrounding children in Monroe County, and encourage candidates to develop clear action plans. Additional surveys will be posted as they are received from candidates.
