United Way of Pennsylvania Monday released the results of its gubernatorial candidate survey, which sought answers to where candidates stand on certain issues.
Incumbent Gov. Tom Wolf and Republican candidates Laura Ellsworth and Scott Wagner submitted responses. Republican candidate Paul Mango declined to respond, according to the nonprofit.
The survey looked at what candidates think of access to pre-k and child care, the state budget process, workforce development, access to health care and human services information.
“United Way hopes Pennsylvanians will use this information to learn more about the candidates as they prepare to head to the polls for the May (15) primary,” stated Kristen Rotz, president of United Way of Pennsylvania. “There are many factors that voters should consider as they evaluate the candidates. Among these are the issues United Way considers to be foundational to the vibrancy of our local communities and opportunity for all: education, health, financial stability and the viability of the nonprofit sector.”
The full survey results and full responses from each of the participating candidates is available on the nonprofit’s website at www.uwp.org, under the “advocacy” menu. The responses are sorted both by issue and by candidate.
