Lawrence  — Ahead of the 2021 elections, LiveWell Douglas County engaged candidates who are running for city and school board positions with a questionnaire. Candidates responded to questions concerning food insecurity, physical activity, tobacco prevention and control, healthy childhood development and sexual violence prevention in our county.

Public policies set by local governments have an outsized impact on our neighbors’ health and happiness. LiveWell often partners with cities and school districts to support programming and promote thriving communities for all residents. The primary election is Tuesday, Aug. 3. 

“We encourage everyone to vote and engage in the 2021 elections that help determine the future for our communities,” said Chris Tilden, Chair of LiveWell Douglas County.

Questions were prepared by leaders and members of LiveWell’s work groups, who are dedicated to addressing issues highlighted in the survey. LiveWell does not endorse candidates for office. All candidates were provided equal opportunity to respond. All responses are word-for-word from candidates. Candidates that did not respond are not listed but will be added when they complete the questionnaire.

LiveWell Douglas County is a local coalition dedicated to promoting system, policy and environmental changes to improve the lives of residents of Douglas County. The coalition serves as a supporting organization for the Community Health Plan to improve food security and healthy built environments throughout the county. Learn more here
