If you haven't yet joined or made your year-end tax-deductible donation to Bike Walk CT, now's the time!
We know transportation is going to be a big focus of Connecticut lawmakers in 2015, and the buzz is already starting. Governor Malloy is widely quoted today as saying "Ultimately, the people of Connecticut, acting through their legislature, need to decide whether they want to continue talking about transportation and the problems associated with it . . . or whether we actually want to do something about it."
Bike Walk Connecticut "actually wants to do something about it." Do you?
Making Connecticut a better place to bike and walk is good for the economy, good the environment, good for our health, and a great way to get younger people to move here and stay here. With your financial support, we can really make a difference.
