Check out this article at Streetsblog:  Will Westchester Replace Richard Brodsky With a Better Voice for Transit?, by Noah Kazis.  It's a very well-written discussion of the new Westchester potential Westchester representatives.

This is SO important! Not only for the future of Westchester, but for NYC as a whole.  Westchester representatives have consistently vetoed legislation that will charge cars for any of their infrastructure: be it via bridge tolls, paying for parking, or Congestion Pricing.  

Some of the reps have good ideas:  expanding the bike paths to include east-west, offering Transit passes to high school students.  These may be much more challenging to enact that the existing trend of pro-car legislation, but we at least need supportive officials in office.  

We have to VOTE!!! Pay attention to this election..
