The Public Life Foundation is sponsoring a community-wide survey to identify the most important priorities of local citizens when it comes to education and child care. The short survey, available through Sept. 21, will allow every resident to provide direct input on the issues in the Greater Owensboro region that they believe would benefit from greater public attention. 

The survey is being operated by Polco, a nationally recognized public engagement organization. 

To participate, residents should click here. They can respond online or download the Polco app for Android or iOS. Once they have answered the questions, residents will be asked to provide their ZIP code to confirm where they live. 

“We want to take the pulse of Greater Owensboro,” said Dave Boeyink, chair of the Public Life Foundation of Owensboro (PLFO) board. “What local issues are high on the public’s agenda?” 

Boeyink noted that PLFO is particularly interested in where early childhood education stands on the community’s list of priorities.

Residents can choose to provide an email address to Polco, which will allow PLFO to easily contact them with future questions. This service is free to all residents. 

Responses will remain anonymous, and personal information will be securely stored by Polco. Polco is committed to a strict privacy policy — they only share anonymous, combined results. Participants’ individual data and votes are never shared.
