We Support Jason Roberts for US Congress

Submitted by on March 14, 2012 – 9:28 pmNo Comment

In many circles Jason Roberts is simply one of the founding members of Bike Friendly Oak Cliff, but this is only one of his many accomplishments.  It’s true that he helped put casual cycling on the map in Dallas,  Texas (and beyond), and there’s no way to measure how many people he has directly or indirectly inspired to get on their bicycle and/or make their neighborhood and city a more livable, walkable, enjoyable  place to call home. 

Where many cycling advocates can sometimes take a shrill and even antagonistic approach, Jason’s style has always been reasoned and methodical.  I’ve learned quite a bit just sitting on the sidelines and watching him work. I could go on and on about his accomplishment and selfless efforts, I’m sure others will do exactly that, but the bottom line is guys like Jason Roberts are the ones who work tirelessly to make our local and regional world a better place to live and we thank him for that.  So it is our pleasure to announce Mr Roberts is has announced his bid for United States Congress district 33.

If you spend some time reading his issues page it’s apparent Jason will be  bringing a voice of reason and compassion to Congress.  Those seem to be increasingly rare traits these days in Washington.

To keep up with his bid drop by Jason Roberts for Congress.  We encourage those who live in District 33 to study up on Mr Roberts and support his effort with your vote and your campaign contribution.  Speaking of which, have you ever wished a legitimate cyclist was in Washington?  Well now is your chance to help make your own wish come true.  Keep in mind you don’t have to live in his district to contribute to the cause, you can support his bid by making a donation here.

And be sure to attend the Jason Roberts For Congress launch party at Eno’s on Thursday (tomorrow) the 15th.  Get more details from the Facebook Event.  And to be very clear, Biking in Dallas supports Jason Roberts for Congress!

Chris started riding a bike again when he noticed the Preston Ridge Trail being constructed across the street from his house. Since then he co-founded Biking in Dallas, has gone through countless Craigslist bike projects (some better than others) and can be found pedaling around town on a Electra Ticino with a camera in tow.
