City Council Candidate Questionnaire

November 2018

Bike Santa Cruz County promotes bicycling through advocacy, education, and community building. To allow our membership and the bicycling community at large to make informed decisions in the November election, we distributed a questionnaire to each City Council Candidate.

The Bike Santa Cruz County Board of Directors is not making candidate endorsements this year, but will publish the answers to the questionnaire to thousands of Bike Santa Cruz County members on our online “In the Lane” newsletter, our Facebook page, and our website.

The Bike Santa Cruz County Candidate Questionnaire included questions about protected bike lanes, the Rail Trail, safe routes to schools, and parking removal. To read the candidate answers, click the link below.
