Resident forms Better Streets Burlington to advocate for walking, cycling, transit

A Burlington resident has started a Facebook page to invite residents to join the quest for better streets for walking, cycling and transit.

The group describes itself as follows:

“We are a group of local residents who support better streets for walking, cycling, and transit. We believe our streets should be safe for everyone from children to seniors. We advocate for investments in better infrastructure for walking and cycling and funding for better public transit service.”

I was inspired to seek public office because I believe, like so many of you, “I can do something about that” on the issues we face. As councilor, my role is to take a stand on what’s best for residents and go to bat for it. Pushback is inevitable from those who don’t have the community’s interests at heart. I will stand with you and for you, to achieve the best interests of our city, without caving to unacceptable compromise in the name of consensus.

    • I tend to agree……trouble is we are of a “car” generation, and that’s not going to change any time soon. That being said, I do use my bike on bike paths for shopping in my neighborhood ….when weather permits and certainly not in winter.
