With the democratic primary election just days away, on May 20, the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance has released a report on where the democratic gubernatorial candidates stand on issues related to arts and culture. The Cultural Alliance submitted seven questions to each of the democratic candidates about how they would approach these issues should they be elected governor.
The issues covered in the survey include the inclusion of the arts as a core subject in the education system, ways to create dedicated funding streams for arts and culture, the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts grant program, and more.
Three of the candidates responded, Rob McCord, Allyson Schwartz and Tom Wolf. However, the Cultural Alliance did not receive answers from Katie McGinty by the time they went to print. View each of their responses:
The questions were not submitted to Governor Tom Corbett, because as incumbent he will not have a challenger in the primary election. For information on how Corbett’s proposed 2015 budget could affect arts & culture, see this report by the Philadelphia Culture Alliance.
