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.
“...the demands of the UNIDAD coalition [a]re extremely reasonable. They're asking for only 124 units of affordable housing, less than 10% of the total new units the Reef is constructing. The other demands are SO reasonable. I hope they get what they want and set a decent (but not excellent) standard for development in historic low-income neighborhoods of color.”
