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

    They have 1 week left to tell us!

    Here’s one of the coolest things about this survey:  just one call or email from just a single constituent can be enough to get a candidate to respond. If a candidate tells you he/she hasn’t seen the survey, you can give him/her this link:

    They can email their answers to survey@bikede.org.

    Quite a few candidates are unopposed this year, and so we may have to work a little harder than normal to get their attention.  But even those folks will respond to their own constituents!

    Questions?  Don’t know the candidates running to represent you?  Email survey@bikede.org.
