bernie scheffler, owner of panther city bicycles, is running for city council district 9 on a platform that includes a bicyle- and pedestrian-friendly fort worth. with some of the major changes coming to cowtown (including the reconstruction of the lancaster and 7th street bridges to downtown), this is certainly an important time to have these issues on the council's radar. district 9 encompasses the area generally referred to as "fort worth south." if you live there and want to help, fall by the bike shop -- bernie still needs some signatures on his petition to get on the ballot may 12th. political engagement gives you the oppo to do more than just bitch when things don't go your way, so for gawd's sake, register 'n' vote!
