Bicycling and walking are political issues. Giving people the real option to get around by foot or by bicycle is addressing critically important issues: personal health, air quality, oil dependence, economics, infrastructure, and safety.
Each election cycle, we want to make sure that voters understand issues that are important to them. In the case of street safety, where Essex is currently number one in pedestrian fatalities, we need improvements. We need to know what will candidates do to complete the streets of our towns.
