I am proud to announce Bikeside’s endorsement of Marcy Winograd for Congress. Marcy is going up against Jane Harman for the democratic nomination in the Westside’s 36th Congressional District on June 8th. Marcy, the challenger, has been fighting an uphill battle against the entrenched pro-war, conservative “Blue Dog Democrat” Harman. Marcy’s central message, that we must move away from a war economy to a green economy, should resonate with all cyclists.
On April 7th Bikesiders from around the city met with Marcy Winograd, candidate for Congress in California’s 36th District, in the intimate lounge at Bikerowave. We discussed the issues, Marcy led the group in reading the Cyclists’ Bill of Rights, and endorsed it. Finally – the group voted to endorse Marcy, and Marcy became the first candidate for federal office endorsed by Bikeside.
I intend to do my best to ensure that a Bikeside endorsement is a meaningful endorsement, so that’s why I ask you to volunteer, if you’re able, for Winograd’s campaign. You can phone bank, or precinct walk, or you can help Bikeside by volunteering to help us make as much noise and generate as much support as possible for Marcy’s candidacy. Or you can follow Marcy on Twitter, or join her Facebook fan page. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested.
