Vote for Tasha Boerner Horvath for Assembly
Comprised of cities that have recently become bike-friendly leaders in San Diego County deserves to be represented by a legislator who supports bikes. That representative is Tasha Boerner Horvath, the only candidate who attended a recent public forum on bicycling and who also scored an impressive ‘A’ on our survey.
Assembly District 76 serves Camp Pendleton, Oceanside, Carlsbad, and Encinitas. Being a part of California’s prized coastal communities, biking and walking along the beach is a common sight. However, getting infrastructure more inland, away from the simple beach paths, is challenging but that is where Tasha Boerner Horvath shines. She understands that “in fact a growing number of people are choosing active transportation to solve their first mile/last mile issues, are bike commuting to work/play, or actually rely on biking or walking as their primary mode of transportation”.
Tasha also shines because she understands the serious climate change impacts on her district. As an Encinitas City Councilmember, she helped pass one of the most ambitious climate action plans in San Diego County. She is clear that if “we want to make real progress on emissions, and create a healthier and more equitable California, we need to invest appropriately in active transportation funding at least at 10%”.
The rest of Tasha’s questionnaire responses are impressive for its breadth and depth of knowledge – and her personal first-hand experience being an avid bicyclist. For these reasons, we are excited to see Tasha emerge as a prominent candidate in the AD 76 race, and we look forward to seeing her provide the leadership needed to work toward safer and more sustainable transportation alternatives for all of the district’s residents.
