CalBike enthusiastically endorses Kipp Mueller to lead Senate District 21.
His strong environmental vision will help California provide more clean mobility options to its citizens. To do this, Mueller hopes to expand the role of the Air Resources Board in transportation decisions. This may seem like an esoteric and obscure state policy change, but transportation advocates believe this type of administrative change is much needed and will lead to big changes in Senate District 21 and all of California.
SD 21 encompasses much of Los Angeles County, plus San Bernardino county’s high desert area. Stretching from Santa Clarita to Victorville, with Palmdale in between, this area has seen tremendous population growth in the last 25 years. Despite the increasing density, residents often have only one option to get around: car.
The infrastructure in this district favors car travel at the expense of cyclist safety. Mueller understands that significantly increasing Active Transportation Program funding to create alternatives to cars is important to his constituents. In response to our questionnaire, he noted that he also wants to develop and expand electric bike and shared mobility programs across the state.
The rest of Mueller’s questionnaire responses were equally impressive for their breadth and depth of knowledge. For these reasons, CalBike is excited to support Kipp Mueller in the Senate District 21 race. We look forward to his leadership to help us make safer and more sustainable transportation alternatives available to all Californians.
