Wake County Commissioner candidates that support Light Rail and bike/pedestrian commuter infrastructure.

Wake County Commissioner candidates that support Light Rail and bike/pedestrian commuter infrastructure.

Here is a list of candidates that I have compiled who support investing in public transportation via Triangle Transit's Wake County Light Rail corridor http://ourtransitfuture.com/projects/wake/ that will connect Wake County to the approved Durham and Orange County Light Rail systems. I have also included whether or not they support investing in bicycle commuting infrastructure via real bike lanes or greenways. If anyone has any input on these other candidates, please let me know. I am working on contacting them directly to get their position.
