• The Delaware General Assembly

    What do candidates running this year for the Delaware General Assembly think about biking, and about making biking better?


    We thought we’d ask them.

    Bike Delaware sent out a survey to all candidates running for the Delaware General Assembly this year. We are planning on releasing the results of the survey on October 26.

    Although we sent the survey out by both mail and email, some candidates have not yet sent us their answers. Undoubtedly, some of these non-responders have not replied because they calculated that we would not like their answers and so figured that they would be better off just not saying anything at all. But we’re pretty sure that, for others, the survey has just gotten put aside in the press of other business. This is where Bike Delaware needs your help.

    Just one call or email from just a single constituent is usually enough to get a candidate to respond. So Bike Delaware just needs a few score people across Delaware to contact the candidates running in their respective districts. You can tell them that Bike Delaware sent them a survey about bicycling, and you would like them to respond. If a candidate tells you he/she hasn’t seen the survey, you can give him/her this link: http://www.bikede.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/BikeDE_GA_Survey.pdf

    They can email their answers to Bike Delaware Survey.

    At the bottom of this post is a list of the General Assembly candidates who have not yet responded to Bike Delaware’s survey, listed (for both Senators and Representative) by district. (If you’re not sure what district you live in, it’s easy to find out.) The time for candidates to respond is running out…so Bike Delaware needs your help this week! Will you contact the candidates running in your area and ask them to respond to our survey? (Be sure to identify yourself as living in their district. If you feel comfortable doing so, give them your address.)
