Notable Quotes From The Candidates For CD2
Stephen Box, representing the Sierra Club, devoted most of the day Sunday to interviewing CD2 candidates who are seeking the Sierra Club endorsement. He has kept the community updated during the course of these interviews, with quotes from the candidates through his Facebook page.
Here we present a sampling:
"The City suffers from a lack of leadership. Politicians lead by sticking their finger in the air rather than doing the right thing." Tamar Galatzan
"Imagine if the paths and trails actually connected and went where we need to go. Imagine a plan for access and connectivity." Tamar Galatzan"The City of LA creates its own rules, doesn't play well with others and doesn't work with its partners" Mary Benson
"I've read the Cyclists' Bill of Rights. I absolutely endorse it. I'll work with the cycling community to implement the CBR"
"From the little issues to the big picture, LA's officials aren't listening. We're public servants, I will serve and I will listen." Tamar Galatzan
"I believe in multidisciplinary problem solving that involves the community. I'll form a 'TeamworkCD2' team to make CD2 work." Tamar Galatzan
"Good decisions involve information gathering, public input and buy-in. It doesn't need to be a straw poll but it needs to inclusive." Paul Krekorian
"Of all of my accomplishments, I'm most proud of the staff that I have assembled." Paul Krekorian
"Riding a bike in LA will work when cyclists are given the same respect in design, continuity and access as other modes." Mary Benson
"I not only want to get people out of cars, I want to get those cars off the street. We must mandate off-street parking!" Mary Benson
"I'm the right candidate for the time, I'm strong in finance, planning, coalition building and community advocacy. I'm the leader." Chris Essel
