"Matt Benjamin understands the concerns of cyclists better than any other City Council candidate this year. From increasing funds for safety and enforcement to cracking down on bike theft, Matt is the right person for the job."

 - Bill Rigler, Former Chair of Transportation Advisory Board

"I am endorsing Matt Benjamin for City Council in 2021. Matt has been a consistent advocate for effective policies on a range of issues, from housing to transportation to climate to homelessness.

As a scientist who studies air quality and climate, as an advocate for low-carbon transportation (walking, biking, and transit), and as someone who has seen the inner workings of city government as a

member of the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, I support Matt's thoughtful, fact-based approach to governing. Please join me in supporting Matt in 2021!"

 - Charles Brock, Parks & Recreation Advisory Board
