Which candidates for mayor will make safe streets a top priority? Find out Monday at a mayoral candidate forum hosted in Madison Valley by Seattle Neighborhood Greenways and sponsored by a long list of safe streets groups, including Seattle Bike Blog.

On July 1st, from 7:00-8:30 PM at the MLK F.A.M.E Community Center eight of the candidates for Seattle mayor will discuss top issues facing Seattle’s streets such as safety, walking, safe routes to school, access to transit, maintenance, neighborhood business districts, greenery, and biking. Eight of the candidates for mayor have confirmed and are expected to attend.
