Where NY mayoral candidates stand regarding bicycling

This just in from Noah Budnick, Deputy Director of Transportation Alternatives.  I’m just going to cut and paste it because I can add no value other than to re-publish it.

Wait.  Before I get there, this blog endorses di Blasio for mayor, as the candidate who speaks the most pleasing words in favor of bicycling in New York City.

Dear [me/you],

Loud and clear, your message hit candidates’ ears: You bike.  You walk.  You vote.

And boy did those candidates respond.

You and 4,000 New Yorkers demanded an on-the-record response from New York City’s candidates for mayor and City Council.  Check out the candidates’ responses before tomorrow’s Primary Election with
Transporation Alternatives’ Voter FAQ. On this page, you’ll also find everything you need to know to be ready to vote.

Tomorrow is your chance to vote in New York City’s most important election in more than a decade — it’s even more important than the General Election.

After tomorrow, most City Council elections are practically over. There are 51 New York City Council seats up for election. In two-thirds of the races, only Democrats are running. The remaining third of contests are expected to see clear winners after the Primary Election tomorrow, dictating the General Election outcome as well. Do you know everything you need to vote tomorrow?

Check out how the candidates for mayor and City Council responded to questions about bicycling and walking.  Learn if you’re registered to vote.  Find your polling place.  And find out how to register to vote. Everything you need is right here.

See you at the polls tomorrow!
