2023 Kid Governor’s Cabinet

The Kid Governor’s Cabinet is led by 2023 Connecticut’s Kid Governor Elisavet “Ellie” Mendez and includes the six final candidates from the 2022 Statewide Election. The Cabinet meets monthly to advise CTKG Ellie, discuss how they can support CTKG Ellie’s campaign platform in their own communities, and collaborate with each other as they accomplish their own three-point platforms.
