Fall 2011 Candidate Surveys

Tue, 09/13/2011 (All day)

VoteArts for LA is surveying candidates in 36 school board elections and the City of Los Angeles Council District 15 prior to the November 8th local elections.  All candidates have been contacted and encouraged to complete a brief survey.  Results will be posted at ArtsforLA.org/fall2011surveys as they are submitted.  Candidate surveys provide an opportunity for candidates to articulate their awareness and support of arts & culture and arts education. 

Twice a year, Arts for LA surveys candidates for election in Arts for All school districts and Arts Advocacy Team cities.  Results of the surveys are posted on ArtsforLA.org and disseminated to Arts for LA's 20,000 email subscribers.  In the last round of surveys in March 2011, Arts for LA received a record number of candidate responses, which can be viewed at ArtsforLA.org/march2011surveys.

Early responders to the Fall 2011 Surveys include candidates for Hacienda-LA Puente School Board and for the City of Los Angeles Council District 15 election. 

If you notice that a specific candidate has not completed the survey and you are interested in his or her responses, we encourage you to contact the candidate and urge him or her to complete the survey. All candidates' contact information is accessible via the Los Angeles County Registrar and Recorder's office.  Click here to find & contact candidates in your district.
