Meet Westside Candidate for Congress, Marcy Winograd Wednesday at Bikerowave

Sometimes a worthy event slips through the cracks and I see something that needs highlighting after the "Week in Livable Streets Events" is published.  Tomorrow, at the Bikerowave, 12255 Venice Blvd, Marcy Winograd, Democratic Candidate for Congress, will be the on-hand to talk bikes, politics and policy with volunteers for the Bikerowave, Bikeside, and any members of the general public that want to hear Winograd speak or just like a robust discussion of bikes.

Winograd has a pretty progressive platform and if you read between the lines you can find some pieces of transportation policies such as opposition to offshore drilling, wanting a green "new deal" for job creation, and encourage more federal dollars for mass transit expansion.
