Schools that register by May 6 will automatically be entered into a random draw for a chance to win 1 of 20 bike racks for their school and schools that sign up before the registration close date of June 1 will be entered into a random draw to win a Can-Bike rodeo for their school in the 2016-17 school year. Winners will be announced during Bike to School Week.

Contest rules and regulations are available on the Healthy Kids Community Challenge website.

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.

What's your take?
