Meet Your New Advocate

The Active Transportation Alliance infomed us today they have hired Lina Hoffman as the new North Suburban Coodinator. Carolyn Helmke, Senior Transportation Planner at Active Trans said that thanks to the help of North Suburban Complete Streets in raising awareness and funds, even in these uncertain economic times, Active Trans wanted to increase their advocacy work in our area. Carolyn went on to say "Lina Hoffman lives in Skokie and is excited to help mobilize north suburban communities to walk, bike and use transit more often. She has experience working with government and non-government organizations and was a student trustee at Oakton Community College from 2002-2004. She is currently finishing up her bachelors degree at DePaul majoring in International Studies and plans to pursue a graduate degree next. She is very interested in the way that cultural values help shape communities and sees a culture of transit emerging that she will help promote."

One of Lina Hoffman's first duties will be to meet our group and hear our priorities at our next meeting, 7:00-9:00PM, Tuesday March 10 at Alberto's Cycles in Highland Park. For more information on the meeting or our group please contact us at cyclingadvocacy@gmail.com.
