If you’re like pretty much everyone else, you have a particular concern, pet peeve or preferred mode when it comes to transportation. When I’m out in the public, I hear a lot of people say we need better and more sidewalks. Others tell me they would like more bike lanes or bicycle education. Still others say our transit system could use a few improvements here or there.

Well, whatever is on your transportation wish list, your chance to tell our elected officials in Olympia is coming up next week. Futurewise is hosting ‘Transportation Advocacy Day (from Spokane)’ next week to let people speak with their legislator via Skype about their concerns.

Futurewise is a statewide public interest group working to promote healthy communities and cities while protecting farmland, forests and shorelines.

As Futurewise says, we can’t just expect state legislators to do the right thing. You have to make it clear, we need real funding options. For more information, or to sign up to participate in Transportation Advocacy Day, click here.
