2018 Connecticut's Kid Governor's® Cabinet
The Kid Governor's® Cabinet consists of the Kid Governor and the six final nominees who counsel and advise the Kid Governor throughout his or her term. The Cabinet meets periodically in the Kid Governor's Office during the Kid Governor's term in office. The Cabinet uses these meetings to discuss how they can support the Kid Governor's campaign initiatives in their own communities and raise awareness for the Kid Governor's platform across the state.

Cabinet members also contribute posts to the Kid Governor's blog -- click here to read more on Megan's blog, Stronger Than Cancer: Lifting Spirits & Changing Lives.
