Vote for Gayle McLaughlin for Lieutenant Governor
McLaughlin’s platform reads like a bicycle advocates’ dream. She gets the importance of bicycling as a component of sustainable transportation and a more socially just society, and has a track record as the Mayor of Richmond to back up her claims. With McLaughlin as Lieutenant Governor, we’ll have an ally who will have our back no matter how bold our demands.
Gayle clearly sees that one of the most important actions the state needs to do is that “we need to get more people walking and bicycling as a means of foot and pedal transportation”. To get there, Gayle firmly believes it must be backed by proper funding and in her view believes active transportation needs to be at least 20% of the state’s transportation budget.
The rest of Gayle’s questionnaire responses are equally as impressive for its breadth and depth of knowledge. For these reasons, we are excited to see Gayle emerge as a prominent candidate in the Lt. Governor 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 state’s residents.
