It is election season in Virginia! So where do the candidates stand on issues such as expanding bike and trail networks, transportation equity, and vision zero?
To find out where the candidates stand, WABA, Virginia Conservation Network, and Virginia Bicycling Federation sent a candidate questionnaire to all the registered Northern Virginia House of Delegate candidates (for strictly educational purposes only, no endorsement will be made).
Candidates who have registered as a Democrat, Republican, Independent, or 3rd party received a questionnaire. You can view the questionnaires submitted by candidates here:
The following graphs include the collective data from questionnaire questions that only required a yes/no response. This does not include data from questions that required a written response.
Also, as part of our 2021 VA General Session wrap-up, WABA hosted a virtual town hall for WABA members.
Speakers included Wyatt Gordon, Policy & Campaign Manager for Land Use & Transportation, Virginia Conservation Network; and Brantley Tyndall, President, Virginia Bicycling Federation.
During the Post-VA General Assembly town hall, our speakers reflected on the successes and lessons learned from this past session. We also discussed upcoming policies and initiatives that advocates should be pushing in upcoming general assemblies. You can view a recording of that town hall here.
