To the Editor,

In this heated election year that is so heavily focused on the economy and personal attacks, I ask everyone to take a minute to ask the candidates about their platforms for our youngest citizens, our children.

As a new mom my viewpoint of the world has completely changed. It’s all about my son and how he will be impacted by my actions and those of my community.

By age four 90 percent of my son’s brain will be developed and shaped by his experiences with me and in the community. As our children become tomorrow’s citizens, workers and parents we will all benefit from policies and actions that promote their positive growth and development.

The goal of any efforts for our youngest citizens should be to level the playing field so that ‘every child’ reaches the kindergarten door healthy, supported and ready to succeed.
Any candidate that can tell me our youngest citizens are among their top priorities will have my vote and thanks because making a difference for even one child benefits all of us.
