Sunday Conversation with Joe Seconder
Bike-Walk Dunwoody, hence not too many posts on this blog of late. Every so often, I'm honored to have some good press coverage. Heaven knows that in my own community of Dunwoody, we have our "regulars" that adamantly oppose trails, bike lanes and the like. They repeatedly get letters to the editor published in our local free newspaper. Heck, at the last city council session I attended, a woman spoke up during public comments and called me "Her opponent". The prior council session, as I was speaking during public comments, she called out from the back of the chambers and interrupted me... Geez -- we have differing opinions and I respect that. But please don't take things so personally, Myself and many, many others would like our city to install bike lanes along the major east-west street that she lives on, Tilly Mill. She does not. And in so doing, has labeled me as her opponent.
Feel free to checkout the below 3-minute video of the woman that lives in my hometown that does not want bike lanes on her street. She starts at minute 7:28. If you play the rest, you'll hear from nine other people that would like bike lanes and appreciate our city's continued investment in safe infrastructure for people to travel on foot or by bicycle.
Anyway, on Sunday, June 13th the Atlanta Journal Constitution published a short Q&A in their Metro Section about my efforts with bicycling advocacy and Georgia Bikes entitled, "Sunday Conversation with Joe Seconder". Special thanks to reporter Ann Hardie for covering this.
