Nov. 2016 Candidate Summary

About Our Endorsement Process

All official candidates certified by the SF Department of Elections were contacted and given the opportunity to answer our Candidate Questionnaire. The completed Candidate Questionnaires from candidates are linked below, along with a handy Candidate Scorecard comparing the responses organized by race. Only those candidates that returned the completed Candidate Questionnaire are eligible for endorsement.

Once you have reviewed all of the candidate’s responses, be sure to VOTE in our member vote to let us know who you think we should endorse. Please cast your vote before Friday, August 26th at 11:59PM. The results from the member vote will go on to influence the board’s final decision on which races and candidates to endorse. The final SF Bicycle Coalition slate will be announced in early September.
