The Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition (LACBC) and Streetsblog Los Angeles are both 501c(3) non-profit organizations and cannot endorse candidates. However, that doesn’t mean we can’t interview, survey or otherwise cover the Mayoral field.
LACBC mailed surveys to all the candidates. Streetsblog interviewed each of the five major candidates on camera. Questions were provided by Streetsblog, LACBC, the Bus Riders Union, Los Angeles Walks, Southern California Transit Advocates and Occidental College’s UEPI. All of the links that you need to read and hear what the candidates said can be found after the jump.
“Arriving in Downtown Santa Monica felt like a dream, almost. Huge crowds! The space looks great. I saw the snaking long line waiting to board and figured I'd try out the Breeze bikeshare to get on at a different station. Despite the number of steps to set up an account, it was straightforward to use. I biked to the 17th/SMC station, locked the bike up, and boarded the train back for Downtown.”
