Thank you for coming out to hear from our City Council and Mayoral candidates!
You can watch the full Get There Asheville event here, featuring candidates from the 2017 general election: https://www.facebook.com/AVLonBikes/videos/1507097632716995/
Each of these two events was well attended. Thank you, Asheville! After the first forum, a candidate remarked, “This was the largest crowd at a political forum that I can remember seeing, in any election year!”
As a 501(c)(3), AoB does not endorse political candidates, but we do push for smart policies towards bikes and transit, which is why we host these educational forums each election cycle. Thank you to all who participated, and thank you to our co-sponsor, Just Economics.
Our Original 2017 Event Information:
Join us for an in-depth forum on transportation policy with Asheville’s 2017 city council candidates
Please join us for our second candidate transportation forum, Get There Asheville. During this informative and fun event, we’ll go in-depth with the general election candidates for mayor and city council on issues and challenges surrounding Asheville’s current and proposed transportation structure.
Our last forum was a great success and several experienced candidates described it as the largest turnout for a candidate forum that they had seen! When you show, we grow! During our first forum, prior to the primary, each candidate was given dedicated mic time and then we mingled. This second forum has a different format, to better explore key issues with the final candidates up for election in the general election. You can watch the archived live stream of our first forum via Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/134438019995435/videos/1299585910147301/
This is one the last chances to meet with our candidates before the general election on November 7, so don’t miss this opportunity to voice your concerns and ideas about making Asheville safer and more enjoyable for all road users.
We are LIVE at the Wedge at Foundation for the candidates forum hosted by Asheville on Bikes & Just Economics of WNC
