Beginning Tonight: Three Mayoral Candidates Talk the Bike, Ride and Walk

Fletcher, Alvarez and Faulconer each spend one night addressing livable streets and communities in San Diego

Beginning today, October 7, 2013, our mayoral candidates tell us where they stand on livable streets and communities in their campaign for Mayor of San Diego. Nathan Fletcher, David Alvarez and Kevin Faulconer have each reserved one evening at various local spots to address the growing momentum for walkable, bikeable neighborhoods.
WHEN: Each candidate will speak on their own designated day:
·   6 p.m. on Monday, October 7: Nathan Fletcher at Mission Brewery (1441 L Street)
·   6 p.m. on Wednesday, October 9: David Alvarez at Mission Brewery
·   4 p.m. on Thursday, October 31: Kevin Faulconer at Wine Pub (2907 Shelter Island Drive #108)
In the past year, San Diegans have shown repeatedly that they want a city structure that makes neighborhoods walk and bike friendly. With the unanimous passing of DECO Bike Share (to implement throughout San Diego in 2014), the city’s first ever CicloSDias, a series of Bike Local Sundays, $200 million passed for SANDAG’s bicycle projects and the largest bicycle friendly Business Improvement District in the nation, all eyes are on what San Diego does next to continue being a leader in open streets and livable neighborhoods.
The event is free and open to all community members.
