The group Young Involved Philadelphia will is hosting a candidate convention tonight at 6pm—and we see no better time for you to ask candidates for City Council how they feel about improving bike and pedestrian infrastructure. After all, City Council has given themselves final say over new bike lanes and it would help us all to know whether or not those running for office want to keep that control, or hand it back to the mayor.
And in case you don’t know what a candidate convention is, Young Involved Philadelphia sums it up as,
a great opportunity for young Philadelphians to meet with, speak with, and learn more about the candidates running for council. All of the declared City Council candidates have been invited to to engage and hear from their current/prospective constituents (That’s you!).
