Candidate Questionnaire

As an organization dedicated to ensuring that all individuals of Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland, and Putnam counties have access to the full range of sexual and reproductive health care services, PPHP Action Fund deeply appreciates the importance of the democratic process in creating strong and inclusive policies that uphold our rights and enhance access to primary and preventive health care services. 

The 2023 PPHPAF Candidate Questionnaire consists of questions related to issues affecting Planned Parenthood’s ability to serve the individuals and families of Westchester, Suffolk, Rockland, and Putnam counties. PPHP Action Fund is collecting responses from candidates running for the following offices: 

  • County Executive 

  • County Legislator 

  • Town Supervisor * 

  • Mayor * 

*Note: These races will only be considered in areas that have PPHP Health Centers. Please view the list of PPHP health centers here

Questionnaire responses, which will not be published, will be used to inform PPHPAF's candidate ratings, alongside candidate interviews, voting and leadership records (if applicable), and public comments. The rating scale is intended to educate New Yorkers about candidates' positions on sexual and reproductive health and rights. Candidate ratings will be posted on the PPHP Action Fund website and shared with supporters. 

Candidates should submit responses by Friday, July 14. PPHP Action Fund will accept questionnaires and release candidate ratings on a rolling basis.
