VA Politics
Virginia voters are evenly split in the race for governor, and overall, they are pleased with the direction of the state. The bad news, they are also seriously concerned about the future for kids. This according to a recent poll of likely voters.48-percent believe kids in the state will grow up worse off than adults today, and 60-percent thing the government is not doing enough to ensure health, education, and well-being of Virginia’s children... “Most Virginian’s don’t know where the candidates stand on these, and where current office holders stand” Steve Clermont with Every Child Matters says the coalition of groups that make up the Strong Kids, Strong Virginia campaign will press local and state candidates to address issues like crowded schools, hunger, and health care… “That’s going to be sort of the basis of our campaign and messaging, is to make these issues far more visible, and show that there’s a lot more that unites Virginians than divides them.” Clermont says, more than 284-thousand children live in poverty, more than 18-thousand are homeless, and one in six faces food insecurity.
