Your Vote Can Create a Brighter Future for Ohio Children
This year’s election is critically important as Ohioans will vote for candidates in Congress, state legislature, Ohio Supreme Court, county commissioners, county and city judges, city council, prosecutors, school boards, and more. Elected officials at every level of government will be responsible for making public policy decisions that will greatly impact the everyday lives of Ohio’s children and their future success. Together, we can elevate the importance of early childhood education and healthy development strategies as candidates are continuing to evolve their public policy agendas.
With federal, state, and local operating budgets looming in the near future, families and the early childhood infrastructure are at risk of losing even more due to budget cuts resulting from decreased revenues. The stakes are high and this is why we are rallying together early childhood advocates to get out and vote for young children. We must elect leaders who understand the crucial role our early childhood infrastructure plays in supporting the health, safety, and education of our most vulnerable.
Recovery from the pandemic will not be easy, but if we work together, we can build a brighter, more sustainable, and more equitable infrastructure.
