Tonight! Eagle Rock! Streetsies! Huizar! Lucero!

11:36 AM PDT on May 29, 2015

Tonight! We're riding and celebrating in Eagle Rock with two of our 2014 Streetsie winners: Elected Official of the Year Jose Huizar and Journalist of the Year Nathan Lucero.

Councilmember Jose Huizar set a Streetsie record by garnering over 5,000 votes in his race against Joe Buscaino for the 2014 Streetsie award. Heck, Huizar got more votes for his Streetsie than Molina did in the City Council election. The award is well-deserved, as Huizar's Council District 14 is home to many of L.A.'s "firsts": first green buffered bike lane, first parklets, first bike corral, etc...

Nathan Lucero is the Northeast Los Angeles videographer who hosts the On My Bike in L.A. YouTube channel. He has been actively documenting bicycling issues, sometimes posting raw footage of important meetings, sometimes producing more polished Streetfilms-esque short documentaries.

We’ll be meeting at 5:30 at Organix, 1731 Colorado Blvd. for a quick photo shoot before the short ride to Eagle Rock City Hall where the Farmer’s Market will be hosting a brief award presentation at 2035 Colorado Boulevard. We’ll have a short presentation and people can feel free to hang out for as long as they want at the Farmer’s Market.

Unlike pretty much every nonprofit in the world, Streetsblog doesn’t use its awards as a pitch for a major fundraising event. However, if you want to make a donation to support our work or to celebrate the great work done by Huizar and Lucero you can do so here. Remember to designate your donation to Los Angeles.
