The California Bicycle Coalition issued their endorsements this week in the state's Assembly and Senate races.
The advocacy organization asked each candidate how much they support bicycling. How much do they ride? Do they support more funding for bicycle infrastructure? Do they support a "complete streets" requirement that all road maintenance take bicycle safety into account? Do they oppose using greenhouse gas funding for more roads?
Based on their answers to the survey and the results of outreach to their own members across the state, CalBike chose to endorse nine candidates:
AD 37 – Monique Limon - Trustee, Santa Barbara USD
AD 40 – Abigail Medina - Trustee, San Bernardino USD
AD 43 – Laura Friedman - Councilmember, Glendale
AD 65 – Sharon Quirk-Silva - Former Mayor of Fullerton and Assemblymember
AD 66 – Al Muratsuchi - Former Assemblymember, Torrance, CA
AD 78 – Todd Gloria - Councilmember, San Diego
SD 9 – Nancy Skinner - Former Member, State Assembly
SD 25 – Katherine Perez-Estolano - Member, High-Speed Rail Board/Businesswoman, San Gabriel Valley
