StreetsPAC to Send Out Its First Candidate Questionnaire

NYC's new safe streets political action committee is set to send out its first candidate questionnaire.

StreetsPAC has put together a 7-page doc that summarizes the committee's agenda and solicits candidate responses to questions on traffic enforcement, transit, the use of street space, and more. It's incredibly thorough, and should go a long way toward separating candidates who are serious about transportation reform from those who aren't.

Launched in April, StreetsPAC aims to make livable streets an issue in the 2013 election, with a focus on races for City Council. The PAC will be sending the questionnaire to all candidates for council, mayor, district attorney, and borough president.

We'll keep an eye out for questionnaire results and other StreetsPAC news.
