Healthy Communities Wyandotte is a nonpartisan organization, and does NOT endorse candidates. We believe that community health is of the utmost importance, and encourage all our candidates and elected officials to take this under serious consideration. To that end, the HCW coalition created a health-focused survey to find out the health priorities for each candidate. These are the responses from our current 2017 Wyandotte County Mayoral, Commission, and Sheriff candidates.  

Candidate responses updated regularly so please continue to check back!
