It was a calm and relaxing evening, with a lot of advice being offered about what to focus on and what to avoid.  I’ll be offering my endorsement to both of them, and lobbying the Green community to pitch in to help these guys.

One encouraging sign is that I ran into Robin Green of the Beaches EDA at the Big Carrot, where I was stocking up on organic snacks for tonight’s event.  He was prancing around in full bicycle wear, those lovely black skin-tight legging things, yellow jacket and helmet in hand, and offered financial support for anyone who opposed Case Ootes, the incumbent in Ward 29 who has declared he will eliminate bike lanes in his ward as part of his election platform.

I brought my camera for the first time, and Charlie took these pictures.  If I can remember to keep bringing it, perhaps we’ll liven up the blog.
