As a California Coastal Commissioner, Sara Aminzadeh already has experience championing what a fossil-free economy can look like. Despite the fact that such a stance will inevitably create friction among a variety of special interests, she is up for the absolutely necessary fight simply because she knows we have no time to waste. Aminzadeh understands that our carbon-based economy absolutely needs to change, especially in our transportation sector, which is responsible for a large part of emissions.
Assembly District 12 represents Marin County. Centered on the main transportation corridor of Highway 101 and its surrounding arterials, it is almost exclusively designed for fast car movement. Despite the domination of cars, this part of the state has some of the most scenic routes for cyclists, however not always as safe as most of us want. Aminzadeh is ready to support policies that make streets more walkable and bikeable. In response to our questionnaire, she said, “accelerating our transition away from fossil fuels and toward renewable energy is the reason I am running for Assembly.” Her environmental policies directly align with her transportation agenda as she stated that “it is critical as we transition away from fossil fuels and prioritize more walkable, breathable, and livable communities.”
The rest of her questionnaire responses are equally as impressive for their breadth and depth of knowledge. For these reasons, we are excited to see Sara Aminzadeh emerge as the winner in the Assembly District 12 race. We look forward to seeing her provide the leadership needed to work toward safer and more sustainable transportation alternatives for all Californians.
CalBike is pleased to endorse Sara Aminzadeh for Assembly District 12. Please vote for Sara Aminzadeh by November 8th, 2022.
