Bike Fort Collins and the Overland Mountain Bike Association sent bike-related questionnaires to all of the 2021 Fort Collins mayoral and city council candidates.  These individuals will have enormous influence with regards to cycling infrastructure on our city roads and paths and in our parks, and natural areas. The city election takes place on April 6th.

Bike Fort Collins Q&A

Elections are right around the corner (April 6) and as a city that holds the distinction and enjoys the reputation as one of the most bicycle friendly communities in the country, we feel its important that bicycling stays a priority among our newly elected City Council. With all but two seats (District 2 – Julie Pignataro and District 6 – Emily Gorgol) up for election this year , we wanted you, as bicycle enthusiasts and supporters to know where the candidates stand on the past-time, the sport, and the transportation mode of bicycling — that is so important to us and our future, as well as such a part of our city’s identity.

Bike Fort Collins sent each of the candidates listed below a short questionnaire intended to give them an opportunity to introduce themselves and provide their position on proximate bicycle and active transportation-related issues. While, as a 501c(3), BFC cannot endorse nor support a specific candidate, we are happy to compile and share their responses to better enable you to make more informed decisions when filling out your ballot this year.

All candidates are listed below alphabetically by Mayor or or Council District. Simply click on their name to view/read their questionnaire responses. Not sure of the boundaries each Council District represents? View a District Map here.
