Bike advcocate wins city council seat

CPA Gary Wysocky of Santa Rosa won a seat on the Santa Rosa, CA city council this week. Wysocky is a founding board member of the Sonoma County Bike Coalition and ran on a platform of reducing car traffic by promoting “alternative” transportation.

Among his endorsements are those from world class cyclist Levi Leipheimer and Bike Monkey Magazine publisher Carlos Perez.

Santa Rosa Press-Democrat: “SR council race brings political shift.”

Hat tip to Murph. Do you know of other local elections where cyclists running on transportation issues did well?
