TA Sends Questionnaires to Mayoral and City Council Candidates

Yesterday, Transportation Alternatives sent out questionnaires to all City Council and mayoral candidates, asking their positions on pedestrian safety, bike lanes, transit, bike-share, and traffic justice. The first responses are set to go up on TA's website at the end of this month.

TA Deputy Director Noah Budnick told Streetsblog that the organization has already heard back from some candidates who intend to fill out the survey. "It's really reassuring to see how mainstream these issues are," Budnick said. "They're becoming election year issues."

You can download the complete questionnaires on TA's website.

TA is not sending questionnaires to public advocate or comptroller candidates. "We just had to pick, based on our resources, how many of the races we could cover," said Budnick.

Primary day is September 10, followed by a run-off on October 1, if needed. The general election is November 5.

For more on this year's slate of candidates, check out Streetsblog's 2013 election coverage, including two mayoral transportation forums, City Council candidate interviews, and TA's own interviews with mayoral contenders from 2012.
