City Council Candidates 2017: Leirion Gaylor Baird

Yes, I support Lincoln’s Complete Streets initiative. We always need to consider carefully the cost effectiveness of any projects, including Complete Streets, but I believe it is important to provide for more opportunities for walking, biking, and taking the bus in addition to providing great streets for cars. Not everybody can drive a car, but they still need to be able to get to jobs, school, doctors, and grocery stores. Plus, these alternative forms of transportation offer our community the added benefit of making a positive impact on our air quality, traffic congestion, and the health of our citizens.
