Crossposted from the Washington Family Leave Coalition:
With the campaign season gearing up, candidates are beginning to hold their first town hall meetings and community forums. Both prospective candidates and incumbents alike are out in the community, eager to bolster their campaign platforms by answering questions from constituents.
In response, the Washington Family Leave Coalition developed its Candidate Questionnaire — a guide for organizations and individuals wishing to discuss work-family public policy issues with municipal, state legislative and national candidates for elective office in Washington State.
For discussions with candidates for national office, please see these fact sheets on the federal Healthy Families Act and Federal Funding for State Paid Family Leave Programs to learn more about these important pieces of pending federal legislation.
