FaithActs for Education is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Bridgeport, Connecticut. We are people of faith building power to get our children the education they deserve.

    Connecticut's Governor, State Senators, and State Representatives control how much state funding Bridgeport receives for education. Our 2018 Voter Guide will focus on candidates running for those offices.

    The goal of this 2018 Voter Guide will be to inform our community about each candidate's background, goals, and education platform. FaithActs will send a questionnaire to each candidate for Governor, State Senator, and State Representative who will appear on a ballot for Bridgeport voters. Candidates who do not respond will be noted.

    Bridgeport voters will also elect candidates to the following offices this year: Lieutenant Governor, U.S. Senators, Representatives in Congress, Registrar of Voters, Secretary of the State, Attorney General, Treasurer, Comptroller. Since Bridgeport receives approximately 70% of its education funding from the state and only 7% federal sources, our 2018 Voter Guide will not focus on federal races.

    FaithActs for Education does not endorse any candidate or party. Candidates' views will be provided for educational purposes only. If you have any questions, please contact us: vote@faithactsedu.org.
