“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever does” - Margaret Mead
Election season is upon us. Elections for a variety of muncipal offices across Connecticut will take place on Tuesday, November 5. While the big money and media attention that go along with presidential, congressional, and gubernatorial elections is not at play this year, the offices that are up for grabs are the very ones that will--or won't--make your town safer, better place to bike and walk.
This is the perfect time for grassroots activists like you to get involved ask important questions of the candidates and make sure that making a bikeable, walkable community is a real priority for whomever you vote for.
Step 1: Find out who's on the ballot, and for which office at the Secretary of the State website.
Step 2: Find out what the candidates have been saying about their positions on different topics and aspirations. Check your local newspaper. Check your local online news outlets, like Patch.
Step 3: Get engaged. Pick and choose as you like, but do something!
Send us your bike walk related news and time permitting, we'll do our best to post it.
