LACBC: Call Your Mayor To Support Bike Resolution

I_voted.JPG

Following the lead of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. Conference of Mayors will consider a resolution making the case that bicycling should be integrated into our nation’s
transportation, climate, energy and health policy initiatives.  They will vote on the resolution at a conference that begins this Friday and ends on Tuesday, June 24.

The LACBC joins the League of American Bicyclists in encouraging cyclists to call their mayors and tell them you want this resolution passed.  The LACBC helpfully supplies the number, 213-978-0600, and email address, mayor@lacity.org, for Mayor Villaraigosa’s office.

Of course, Villaraigosa isn’t the only local mayor attending the conference, just scanning the list of attendees I see mayor’s for Long Beach, Manhattan Beach and San Gabriel will all be present.  Every Mayor has an equal vote at the conference, so make sure to let  your mayor know that biking is important to you in the next couple of days.
