City Manager Dave Kiff, Councilwoman Nancy Gardner and Public Works Director Steve Badum were there to reinforce the city’s commitment.
Johnson is new in the position; he comes from Long Beach, a city with a reputation for bike safety. The Chief, in his invitation email, described a cyclist fatality that occurred his second week on the job. Tonight he expressed his dedication to working with the many cycling advocates in attendance.
