CalBike is pleased to endorse Steve Bennett for District 37 assemblymember in the November 2022 elections.
Steve Bennett’s platform reads like a bicycle advocate’s dream. He understands the importance of bicycling as a component of sustainable transportation and a socially just society. We endorsed him two years ago, and his record in the Assembly has proved that he’s a true bike champion.
Assembly District 37 stretches along the coast from Ventura to Lompoc, with Santa Barbara right in the middle. Bennett has always been a strong supporter of active transportation a region that has and will continue to see drastic changes due to our climate crisis and the transportation systems that fuel it. As a sitting member on the Ventura County Board of Supervisors, Bennett has the knowledge to put forth new bold ideas, including expanding safe and equitable bike options. For example, in a recent Ventura County Star article citing Bennett’s leadership in developing a 30-mile ‘Rails to Trails’ network across the county, he is quoted saying “The world is changing…we have to reduce carbon emissions with different approaches to our lifestyle.” We couldn’t agree more.
CalBike endorses Steve Bennett for District 37 Assembly Member. Please vote for Steve Bennett by November 8, 2020.
