Bernie Scheffler Hearts FW

Bernie Scheffler, the owner of Panther City Bicycles, is running for Fort Worth City Council in District 9. Other than having a cool bike shop, what do I like about Bernie? Let me count the ways:

  • Promoting local, independent businesses: He wants to focus on quality, not quantity growth. He favors policies promoting, small scale, local businesses.

  • Historic preservation: He wants to protect Fort Worth's architectural heritage.

  • Bike- and pedestrian-friendly FW:Fort Worth is already a pretty bike-friendly town. Bernie wants city to work with bike- and pedestrian advocacy groups to improve Cowtown's roads for non-auto traffic.

  • Light rail: He wants to get the light-rail proposal back on track.

  • You can check out Bernie's blog to see how the campaign is going.
