CLE candidates respond to questionnaire about active transportation

Find out where the Mayoral and Council Candidates stand on biking, walking and transit issues

Biking and walking are political issues. When you choose to get around by foot or by bike, you are addressing critically important issues: personal health, air quality, oil dependence, economics, infrastructure, and safety.

Each election cycle, we want to make sure that candidates understand issues that are important to constituents. In the case of street safety, 1 in 5 traffic fatalities and major injuries are pedestrians or people on bikes, improvements to our built environment may literally save their lives.

We are providing all Cleveland City Council and Mayoral Candidates an opportunity to talk directly about active transportation issues so voters can make informed decisions when casting their vote.

As part of the questionnaire we provided candidates our vision for Active Transportation in Cleveland. The vision is a concise plan of actions that Cleveland’s elected officials should follow to meet our city’s challenges around mobility generally, and active transportation—biking, walking, and public transit—specifically. It is a blueprint to transform Cleveland into a less car-dependent, healthier, and more equitable city. In our questionnaire we asked candidates what actions of the Active Transportation Vision they would make a priority and how they would implement them. You can read our Active Transportation Vision here, and see how candidates responded to this question and others below.

Please note we will add additional questionnaires responses as we receive them from candidates, so check back often.

If you are candidate or candidate representative, you can contact us if you have any questions about the questionnaire. Note that Bike Cleveland is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and does not endorse candidates.

Don’t forget Tuesday, September 12th is primary day for all Cleveland mayoral and council candidates in Cleveland. Details on voting here.
