FABB 2007 Board of Supervisors Candidate Survey

FABB recently sent a questionnaire to all candidates for Fairfax County Board of Supervisors. 15 of 21 candidates responded, most expressed qualified or strong support for making bike lanes and wider shoulders a part of the transportation infrastructure in Fairfax County.

The focus of the survey was to gauge each candidate's commitment to the use of bicycles as a viable transportation alternative. An increasing number of cities and communities across the U.S. are finding that, given safe conditions and convenience, more commuters will choose biking as a transportation option.

We are very encouraged by the candidate responses. There was overwhelming support among the candidates for explicit funding for on-road bike facilities such as bike lanes and paved shoulders, and for Fairfax County becoming a Bicycle-Friendly Community.

You can view the results on the FABB website.
