We are delighted to welcome Randy LoBasso, our new communications manager, to the BCGP community. Randy started in the middle of last week and has been off to a great start tackling all things communications. He will be at the helm of this blog, manage our website and social media, and promote the Coalition’s work across the entire media spectrum.

He comes to us from the Philadelphia Weekly, where he was staff writer and a columnist/blogger for the past four and half years.  He also teaches writing at Community College of Philadelphia, which he will continue to fit into his schedule. Prior to the Weekly, he was a freelance journalist, adjunct instructor at Moore College of Art, editor-in-chief at Origivation Magazine and worked at Shorr Johnson Magus during the 2008 election cycle.

Randy holds both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in English and Writing Studies from St. Joe’s University in Philadelphia.  He is lives in Kensington with his wife, Stephanie, and a black lab mix, Digby. He can be reached at or at 215-242-9253, x311

Sarah Clark Stuart


Sarah’s foray into trail and bicycle advocacy began in 2004 when she became involved in the “Free Schuylkill River Park” campaign to preserve public access to the Schuylkill River Trail in Center City, now known as Schuylkill Banks. Since joining the Bicycle Coalition in 2006, she has been a key player in the Bicycle Coalition’s key accomplishments: the $23 million TIGER trail-building grant; naming and building out the Circuit; lobbying successfully for legislation mandating the inclusion of bike parking in new construction projects; Philadelphia’s Complete Streets policy; and coordinating research and analysis of several reports on bicycling in Philadelphia.
