Ray Judah honored as bike/walk champion

BikeWalkLee Press Release 8/18/10

BikeWalkLee (BWL), a local community coalition advocating for better bicycle and pedestrian facilities in Lee county, has selected Lee County Commissioner Ray Judah to receive its first award. Judah will be recognized as a "Champion for Complete Streets" as part of today's ceremony to spotlight improvements to the Sanibel Causeway tollbooth and approach to facilitate bicycle access to the causeway and Sanibel Island.

Judah, the District 3 commissioner since 1988, was singled out for being a tireless champion for bicycle and pedestrian issues in Lee County. According to Dan Moser, a member of the BWL steering committee, "Ray has fought to ensure that biking, walking and mass transit has had a place at the transportation table -- and that has helped ensure that bikers, walkers and those who rely on public transportation have had a place to enjoy on our roadways."
