Vote for Bicycle Friendly Candidates

The Nevada Bicycle Coalition supports Bicycle Friendly Candidates for elected office. The Coalition has received excellent responses to our 10 point questionnaire from several candidates in local City of Reno elections and have scored and ranked them. The campaigns for Mayor, Council-member and City Attorney are very important to create the policy and vision for improving the bicycle network in Reno, Sparks and Washoe County as the RTC Board of Commissioners is selected and represented by these officials.
Thus we are pleased to announce the Nevada Bicycle Coalition is supporting the following candidates:

Brett Kandt--Reno City Attorney

Elisa Cafferata--Ward 2 Council-member

DeLores Aiazzi--Mayor
