WalkBikeBerks maintains the policy that we'll post accurate information so that readers can make their own educated decisions to support walking and biking.
But..today there is a circulating rumor too good to keep to myself:
Will President-elect Obama select Congressman Earl Blumenauer or Congressman James L. Oberstar as his new Secretary of Transportation? Some say yes.
Who are they?
Learn more about Rep Blumenauer's Congressional Bike Caucus here: http://blumenauer.house.gov/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=280&Itemid=162
"Rep. James L. Oberstar (D-Minn.) is a bicycle fanatic who rides his various bikes about 2,300 miles a year." Find more here: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2007/07/09/AR2007070901533.html
See where I caught the buzz: Blumenauer as Secretary of Transportation? - Cyclelicious#links: "Rep. Jim Oberstar"
What to do while we wait? Call our Congressional leaders and ask them what they have done for Transportation Policy to include walking and biking for better access and mobility. You can find their contact information here: http://directory.usayfoundation.org/PA.html.
Why isn't Pennsylvania leading the nation (and the world) in better transportation? These are questions we need to ask our elected officials.
