Background:

Multiple issues that impact families in our county, such as inadequate and unaffordable housing, shortage of licensed child care, and gaps between wages and expenses, will be addressed by each of the four candidates running for Tuolumne County Supervisor in the November election. 

They will share their perspectives on how, as a community, we can work together to address the challenges many local families have in attaining and maintaining self-sufficiency.  The value that children and families bring to the local economy and social fabric will also be discussed, including the importance of investing in young children for the long term benefit of all citizens.
