Walk, Bike, Bus, Drive…However You Do It, Go Vote

Tomorrow, go vote. I don’t care how you get there, take a private jet if you have to, but please go vote. I say this because if you’re reading this, you’re an extraordinary person with excellent judgment. Really? Yes, of course you are. You chose to read this blog didn’t you?

Borrowed from 1 World, 2 Wheels

Despite a request before the primaries, MyWHaT has not yet reached a maturity level to publicly endorse a slate of candidates. Of course I have opinions, but to tell you the truth I haven’t made up mind on a few of the candidates and issues. I’m the illusive golden goose for candidates because I’m what pollsters call a “likely voter” and yet, the day before the election, I’m undecided. 

I will say, for issues that directly impact public space and issues related to all things MyWHaT, the race for Governor, 104th State Representative, and Grand Traverse County Commissioner are significant. There are distinct differences among these candidates on the subject. None of them are crazy enough to claim that a plan for bikable cities is a U.N. plot to take over the world, but differences remain (Colorado governor race).

Locally, we also have 4 ballot proposals of significance: 2 key proposals regarding Traverse City Light and Power’s operation, a County Road millage and a millage for the operation of the TC Senior center.

If you’re interested in a discussion about these races and ballot proposals, send me an email, give me a call, or buy me a beer. I certainly have ideas and typically I’m not shy about sharing them. Or, if you are confident and want to make a plug for a candidate, please leave a comment to this post. I just ask that we keep the comments positive, respectful and we avoid challenging other people’s opinions on this subject. No need to burst bubbles at this point.

If you have resources to share, please share the key ones here. People are looking for information and don’t assume everyone is seeing what you’re seeing.

As they say in Chi-town, vote early, vote often.

    And don’t forget to vote this week for Frazz as our next daily comic strip to appear in the Traverse City Record Eagle. The author is a Michigan resident, active cyclist, and often writes about recreational and utilitarian cycling. The strips are intelligently written and often advocate for people to choose to ride bicycles instead of automobiles.
