Bike Fort Collins has sent each candidate for Mayor and City Council of Fort Collins a questionnaire to provide them an opportunity to introduce themselves and give their position on proximate bicycle and active transportation-related issues.
Bike Fort Collins feels that it is essential that bicycling stays a priority among our newly elected City Council and Mayor as Fort Collins elections are happening soon on Tuesday, April 6. Fort Collins holds the distinction and reputation as one of the most bicycle-friendly communities nationwide.
The organization wanted the community to be informed where the candidates stand on bicycles and bicycling as a past-time, a sport, and transportation mode that is a key part of the city’s identity. All but two seats (District 2 Julie Pignataro and District 6 – Emily Gorgol) are up for election this year, including the Mayoral position.
Links to the candidates responses are as follows:
- MAYORAL CANDIDATES
- CITY COUNCIL – DISTRICT 1 CANDIDATES
- CITY COUNCIL – DISTRICT 3 CANDIDATES
- CITY COUNCIL – DISTRICT 4 CANDIDATES
- CITY COUNCIL – DISTRICT 5 CANDIDATES
503c(3) nonprofit Bike Fort Collins cannot endorse or support any specific candidate and are happy to collect, compile, and share the responses above to enable community members better to make informed decisions when filling out their ballot this year.
