Since many of you will probably spend some part of this weekend reading your voter’s pamphlet and/or filling out your ballot, here’s a quick way to compare how the three most prominent mayoral candidates are thinking about bike safey.

As part of their election coverage, Oregon Public Broadcasting asked Ted Wheeler, Jules Bailey and Sarah Iannarone a series of questions about key issues facing our city. One of the questions was: “What should city government’s role be in ensuring bike and pedestrian safety?”

Their answers are short and sweet. And because OPB offered audio clips for each question, it’s easy for us to share them here in succession:





Ted Wheeler

Jules Bailey

Sarah Iannarone

We’re lucky to have such a great field of candidates for mayor this year. And — given the political stagnation we’ve been through for so many years — it’s exciting that all of the leading candidates this year are actually embracing bikes.

Of course you need a lot more information about these candidates to make a final decision, so make sure to re-read our in-depth interviews with each of them and our coverage of various debates and other election news over the past few months.
