Yes, it’s election day! I’ve been so busy that I completely missed the early voting window myself, so I’ll be in line with everybody else tomorrow. Well, probably not in line, the municipal primaries aren’t exactly the biggest draw…
Here’s a table with the endorsements of several local groups; you get to pick three council members and one mayor. Have fun!

To replace my earlier pick of Azar (who didn’t make the cut) I’ve given the nod to Stephens. I feel like he’s a strong proponent of improving infrastructure for cyclists and pedestrians.
And now for a brief program note: you’ve probably noticed that I’ve been scarce lately. This isn’t for lack of desire to keep posting or anything! I’ve been incredibly busy with other projects. A lot of that is wrapping up and I do hope to even out my posting schedule a bit going forward.
