2017 Election

 

The Massachusetts Vision Zero Coalition has given all official candidates in Boston, Cambridge, Somerville, Springfield, and Lynn the opportunity to respond to questions about walking, biking and transit in their communities. 

The questionnaires completed by candidates are linked below, organized by municipality and race. We have not edited the responses and only adjusted the formatting where necessary for online presentation. We created a glossary for some of the terms used in the questionnaire. 

Note that the Vision Zero Coalition is largely comprised of 501(c)3 non-profit organizations and does not endorse candidates.

Election Day 2017 is Tuesday, November 7! Boston has a preliminary election on Tuesday, September 26.
