About Me

Hi everyone! My name is Jessica Brocksom and I am honors to have been elected as your 2017 Connecticut’s Kid Governor. I look forward to the year ahead and sharing great ideas and suggestions about how we can be kind to animals and prevent animal cruelty. For instance, my school recycled bottles and the money went to our local animal shelter to help a dog who needed eye surgery.

CTKG Jessica’s Platform

2017 Connecticut’s Kid Governor® Jessica Brocksom was elected on her platform of Helping Animals, Those Without A Voice. Her platform focuses on three points to give a voice to animals:

  1. Learn about and support tougher laws around animals.
  2. Promote collection drives for local pounds or shelters.
  3. Create an educational presentation to be shown in schools across Connecticut.
