While we did not receive a response to our questionnaire from Tony Vazquez – outlining his stance on safe streets – Mayor Vazquez does have a solid track record on improving mobility options in Santa Monica. As a member of City Council, Vazquez joined his colleagues in unanimously supporting many important safe and sustainable streets initiatives.
Since 2012, when Vazquez was elected to the City Council, he has joined his colleagues in supporting the region’s first public bike-share program, Breeze Bike Share, which officially launched late last year. He has also voted to adopt the city’s Pedestrian Action Plan, which lays out a comprehensive vision for making Santa Monica a safer and more desirable place to walk and includes a Vision Zero goal.
We would hope that Mr. Vazquez continues to join his colleagues in supporting these initiatives and more as Santa Monica continues to lead as a sustainable streets champion.
