The Cascade Bicycle Club has just come out with their endorsements for the August 21, 2007 Washington State Primary. They are a nonprofit, nonpartisan group that defines their mission to be “creating more livable communities by promoting health & recreation through bicycle activities, advocacy, & education.”

On their primary endorsement page they note that their involvement in election politics is for “one vitally important reason – policies that effect bicycling begin and end with our elected representatives.”

Besides evaluating the candidates on specific issues they also evaluate a candidate’s past votes, talk to local activists and, when necessary, interview them face to face.
Critical votes for incumbents spanned a range of issues impacting bicycling, including: child safety, bicycle lanes and trails, transportation funding, land-use and sprawl.”


The endorsements cover both King and Snohomish Counties in Washington State.
