2013 Mayoral Primary Voter Guide

Head Shot Composite from Loyola Marymount University

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.
