Safer streets for biking is a political issue. When you choose to get around by bike, you are addressing critically important issues: personal health, air quality, oil dependence, economics, infrastructure, and safety. Making the choice easy and safe for people to use a bicycle for basic transportation or recreation is often up to our elected officials and their commitment to dedicate the funding and resources needed to make our streets safe for everyone whether they are 8 years old or 80.
This year, we wanted to clearly show the candidates that these issues are not only utterly important for the lives, safety and health of our citizens, but that they are also hugely popular. To do this we issued a candidate questionnaire to educate Cleveland City Council candidates on the issues important to biking and for the community to know where they stand on the issues. Below are the responses of candidates who completed the questionnaire to date, check back for updates on candidates who have not yet responded.
