Questions for Candidates and Elected Officials

Asking questions of our political candidates and elected officials can help us understand where they stand on issues. To support that aim, AGS leaders and public policy experts have developed a compendium of questions that AGS members and others can use to ascertain where candidates and elected officials stand on issues important to achieving our vision for health care and older adults. This question guide will help hold officials accountable by encouraging those who run for any office to articulate a clear, actionable vision to meet the needs of all older Americans.
