If, indeed, children are our future, as so many like to say, what might that future look like, given the many challenges our children face: declining resources for education, intervention when they are victimized by predators, and nutrition programs, neighborhoods that are unsafe and so much more.  With an election just a few weeks away, the public policy debate appears to be ignoring this critically important but voiceless constituency.

In this week’s show, host Alan Jennings discusses the 2012 election with guests Tom Carroll, vice chair of the Northampton County Republican Committee, and Walt Garvin, chair of the Northampton County Democratic Committee.
