Humane PA, Pennsylvania’s Political Voice for Animals, is committed to passing stronger anti-cruelty laws in Pennsylvania and the way we approach this important task is to is to make sure that we elect humane leaders. The Humane PA 2014 Candidate Survey, which helps us determine which candidates will receive Humane PA’s support has just been posted and is ready for candidates to take!
Humane PA 2014 Candidate Survey
*Please note this survey is for candidates only.
Humane PA will be issuing endorsements for the General Election in November. Before we endorse candidates, we give them the opportunity to let us know where they stand on animal cruelty so we can measure their responses and commitment to stand strong for the humane treatment of animals against their opponent(s). Our endorsement process is not taken lightly and we spend a great deal of time reviewing and evaluating an incumbent candidate’s voting record and leadership on animal bills. We also ask every candidate – both incumbents and first time office seekers – to complete our survey as the survey responses are critical in determining which candidates will receive our endorsement. Our survey queries candidates on key pieces of pending animal legislation, both the bills that are easily supported as well as those that may face opposition. We also ask candidates to tell us about themselves, the role of animals in their lives and their feelings about how animals should be treated. Past responses have been quite illuminating! All responses are kept strictly confidential, and allow us to evaluate the level of commitment a candidate has to helping protect Pennsylvania’s animals from cruel treatment. If you want your candidate to be considered for an endorsement please send them this announcement to get a jump on our endorsement process!
In a recent statewide poll, 86 percent of Pennsylvania voters polled support their legislators efforts to ensure humane treatment of animals. Our aim is to make sure that Pennsylvania voters who care about the treatment of animals know which candidates will support a humane agenda and deserve their vote at the polls!
* Candidates who took the survey before the Primary Election do not need to retake the survey unless your answers have changed.
