Walk Bike Transit is a political action committee working to ensure that candidates are aware of the importance of active transportation to healthy communities, as well as the constituency of voters to whom the issue is important.
So here is the deal: This is a once in a generation election for the city of Chicago which means we need to come out strong...
We are working to organize coffees for Aldermanic and Mayoral Candidates (i.e. meet-and-greet events) at individuals homes (and occasionally) venues throughout the city. For the aldermanic's we are doing this on a ward-by-ward basis so that candidates can speak directly to constituents (i.e. People who can vote for them); and we are trying to limit these events to constituents to increase our impact accordingly. Unless of course you would be willing to write a check, in which case we don't care where you are from :) To find out what ward you live in, you can go to our website http://walkbiketransit.org, and click on What ward do I live in?
We are trying to set these up in as many wards as possible (all 50 if we can make it happen). So if you are interested in helping organize/host a coffee in your ward then the next step would be a conversation with me. We are also in the process of organizing for the mayoral candidates, which will of course be great for everyone to be involved in.
Thanks and wishing you all safe and warm riding,
