Bike Walk Helena: Making Helena a more pedestrian and bike friendly community

Helena Municipal Candidates’ Responses to Bike Walk Helena Survey

On November 7th, Helena will select a mayor and two City Council Commissioners. We are fortunate in this year’s slate of candidates; each seems energetic, engaged, and capable. The Helena Independent Record and Helena’s have published candidate overviews, outlining candidates’ positions on a variety of local issues. The candidates touched only lightly on non-motorized transportation issues.

Bike Walk Helena doesn’t endorse candidates, but we think voters may be interested in knowing how each candidate views the importance of being able to bicycle, walk, and take the bus. We asked each of Helena’s eight mayoral and commission candidates three questions:

1. Do you habitually walk around town, ride your bike, or use Capital Transit?
2. Do you use Helena’s Centennial Trail?
3. Please comment on Helena’s Complete Streets Resolution.

Please vote. Bike Walk Helena thanks each candidate for their thoughtful responses, and for their willingness to serve Helena.

We are partnered with the Friends of Centennial Trail (FOCT).

Put it on your calendars: The 2018 Bike Expo is on April 28th at the fairgrounds with setup on the 27th.

Safety is everyone’s concern- cyclist, pedestrians, and motorists all need to know and follow the rules of the road.
