For those who haven’t mailed in your ballots, the California primary happens tomorrow, June 3, 2014.
California Bicycle Coalition endorses Suja Lowenthal and Joe Krovoza.
Lowenthal of Long Beach (and one-time daughter-in-law to U.S. Representative Alan Lowenthal and Assembly Member Bonnie Lowenthal, who currently represents the Assembly district Suja is running for) is campaigning by bike for the 70th District Assembly seat. Lowenthal is responsible for a lot of the bike-friendly initiatives since becoming a Long Beach council member in 2006.
Krovoza, who currently serves as Mayor of Davis, is running for the 4th Assembly District. This District covers all of Lake and Napa Counties, most of Yolo County, a big chunk of Cousa County, and bits of Sonoma and Solano Counties. This founder of Davis Bicycles! describes himself as an “avid utility bicycling advocate.”
Beverly Hills Safe Streets examines candidate responses to the LA Bicycle Coalition candidate questionnaire. LACBC and Better Bike make no specific endorsements, but Better Bikes’s detailed look at the candidate answers helps make the choices clear for those who are concerned about transportation choices.
I’ve previously published my endorsements for the city of San Jose.
Are there other endorsements for candidates in California? Post in the comments if you know of any.
