StreetsPAC Is Sending Out Its Mayoral Candidate Questionnaire

StreetsPAC has released its mayoral candidate questionnaire.

The 10-page questionnaire is characteristically thorough. Among other topics, any candidate who submits a complete response will be on the record concerning safe streets policies, expanding the city’s bike lane network, road pricing, parking reform, car-free parks, transit expansion, bike-share and, yes, the Prospect Park West bike lane.

StreetsPAC has not yet decided whether it will endorse a candidate for mayor, according to founding member Glenn McAnanama. “Our endorsements will be based on the questionnaire responses and, if possible, interviews with selected candidates,” McAnanama said, via email.

McAnanama says StreetsPAC is still considering endorsements for City Council races and citywide offices. The group has released two rounds of council endorsements so far.

StreetsPAC will be sending the mayoral questionnaire to “as many [candidates] as we can get emails for,” McAnanama said.

    Finally. I’ve been waiting for a straightforward breakdown on liveable streets policy by the mayoral candidates. Now that Wiener probably blew his chance (Good riddens), most likely Christine Quinn will be mayor unless De Blasio can pick up the pace.

    I was disheartened to read that De Blasio does not support Congestion Pricing which I feel is necessary in NYC. Quinn, who I believe remains silent on the issue due to the election previously supported it.

    Quinn also seems pro-development. Hoping to reduce transit commute times and add a significant number of “affordable” units, I feel she will warm up to the liveable streets movement post election.
