MoBikeFed Voter Guide: U.S. Representative District 2

The Missouri Bicycle Federation sent information to all candidates for office in Missouri this year, and invited each candidate to provide a statement of their position on bicycling and walking issues.

The statements from U.S. Representative District 2 candidates are below.

Candidates: Todd Akin (R) and Bill Haas (D)

We sent candidates a list of questions the candidate could address, including whether
the candidate supports making MO a better, safer place to walk and bicycle,
Complete Streets, our goal of doubling the amount of walking and bicycling
in Missouri, and the Tour of Missouri.

Mr. Haas responds:
Yes!
