Children's members advocate for action

ca120414aChildren’s Administration members delivered about 1,000 petition cards to Gov. Jay Inslee’s office today (Thursday, Dec. 4).

The message was clear: Budget cuts, reduced staff and reduction in services have put vulnerable children and families at risk. Support for additional staff, reduce caseload sizes, more resources to help place foster children and recruit more foster parents.

The delegation from around the state presented the cards in a meeting today with top Inslee aide Andi Smith. The members earlier visited their respective legislators’ offices with similar petition cards. It was part of a special pre-session Lobby Day during the state House of Representatives’ December “committee weekend.”
