In August Common Cause Pennsylvania developed and distributed a gubernatorial candidate questionnaire that assessed key government reform issues currently confronting Pennsylvania state government.  Over the ensuing weeks CCPA made numerous follow-up efforts to the candidates to ensure that each had received the questionnaire and would be responding.  The following are the responses received by our end-of-September deadline.  If additional responses are received they will be posted here.

A summary of the gubernatorial candidates’ responses to our questionnaire can be found below. To see the complete answers of any of the candidates, click on the candidate's name.
