It could happen, if we elect Mike McGinn. As noted here earlier, McGinn is a dedicated cyclist who understands bike issues and culture. For much of the campaign he’s been considered a long shot, but a new KING TV poll puts him third, with 15 percent of voters and growing. More than ever, Mike needs cyclists’ help to put him into the November general election.
Over at SeattleLikesBikes, Michael Snyder has posted a nice synopsis on what we can do to help McGinn build on his final surge. Here’s the pitch — please give it some thought and do what you can!
To our Fellow Bikers,
We have a historic election in front of us. Right now we decide how we want this year’s Mayors race to look. Mike McGinn is a bike advocate, a biker commuter himself, and has successfully fought for bikers.
This primary election is important. Getting Mike through to the general election means we will have a bike advocate fighting for us, fighting for safe streets, and for better transit options.
We’re asking you to dig deep and please donate to the McGinn for Mayor campaign.
