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?

    "I wasn't aware of the rules." ??? There are actually adults who don't know it's illegal to ride against traffic?
