06/18/2008: "Take Action in Southern California"
This just in from Aurisha at the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition:
Mayors of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Cerritos, Long Beach, Manhattan Beach, Monrovia, Pomona, Redondo Beach, and San Gabriel are attending the U.S. Conference of Mayor's Annual meeting from June 20-24th and bikes are on the agenda! According to the June 10th American Bicyclist update, Mayor Chris Koos, of Normal, IL, has introduced a resolution making the case that bicycling should be integrated into our nation's transportation, climate, energy and health policy initiatives.

Let's get your mayor to be the first mayor in LA County to co-sponsor the resolution, which is currently co-sponsored by many cities, but none in LA County: John Hickenlooper, Denver, CO, John Marchione, Redmond, WA; Marty Blum, Santa Barbara, CA; R.T. Rybak, Minneapolis, MN; Jim Brainard, Carmel, IN; Al Larson, Schaumberg, IL; Ron Littlefield, Chattanooga, TN; and Joe Riley, Charleston, SC.

Take 2 minutes TODAY and urge your mayor to cosponsor the resolution! (calls preferred)
