Candidate questionnaire

We received the following Action Alert from the New York State Catholic Conference:
On September 13 the New York State Catholic Conference mailed a candidate questionnaire to all of the state candidates for elective office, surveying them on a variety of issues of importance to the Church. (You may view the candidate questionnaire here.)

The purpose of this project is not to endorse one candidate over another or to tell Catholics how to vote, but rather, to inform Catholic citizens as to where each candidate stands on issues of concern. We plan to broadly disseminate and publicize the results of this survey in order to promote voter awareness and understanding.

The success of this project is dependent upon the receipt of responses from the hundreds of candidates running for the State Senate, Assembly Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, and Comptroller. Please contact the candidates who seek to represent you and urge that they complete the survey and send it back to us as soon as possible.
