LSN Member of the Week: Mr. Theo

Let’s give a warm Streetsblog welcome to Mr. Theo, the newest member of the Livable Streets Network. You may recognize Theo as the star of the Louisville, Kentucky transit system’s YouTube hit, "Bikes-on-Board." Sure, some LSN members will criticize him for uploading a photo of himself standing next to a vehicle that gets about 7 miles per gallon and runs on leaded fuel. But give the man some credit for supporting urban infrastructure investment; his personal web site is BigDiggity.com. If you’re looking for a transit-oriented M.C. in the River City area, Mr. Theo is available for hire.

By the way, if you are a regular commenter on Streetsblog and you haven’t yet created a member profile for yourself, you can sign up here. We’ve been working to improve some of the tools and interfaces in LSN Groups, so check it out if you haven’t visited in a while.

The question that drives the piece forward is […]
