photo_tony_williamsTony Williams did not respond directly to our Mayoral Candidate Questionnaire.  But, he did make this statement to Brian Hickey’s interview on Newsworks Ask the mayoral candidates: How will you implement the ‘Vision Zero’ initiative?”

Improving mobility is about connecting neighbors and neighborhoods. My vision of One Philadelphia is a city of distinctive, yet connected, neighborhoods that have the same access to great schools, thriving businesses, and clean, safe streets.

Over the last four years, pedestrian deaths have increased by 16 percent, from North Philadelphia to Northeast Philadelphia.

I embrace Vision Zero, and as mayor I will convene a Vision Zero Task Force to improve policy coordination across city government, and develop a plan to reduce traffic-related fatalities and injuries by 50 percent by 2020.
