Explanation:
   
F. Will you amend Sec. 19-286. Driving or parking on sidewalks prohibited, so people can ride their bicycles on the sidewalk?
Answer: No
Explanation: It is my understanding and experience that fast-moving bicycles, skateboards, and motorized vehicles (including hover boards) are dangerous to both pedestrians and bicyclists and create enmity between them. If data proves this wrong, then I am open to reconsidering. Specialized, adjacent paved paths for bicycles, including protected bike lanes, however, can help create safe-spaces for bicycle riders.

G. Do you support a city ordinance that prevents any further Development of park or green space lands for development of sports fields?
Answer: No
Explanation:  But I do support the municipal purchase of land for green space preservation.  

H. Will you either amend or repeal Sec. 22-28. Public parks hours of operation and curfew, so people can use the Howard W. Peak Greenway trails after dark?
No yes or no answer was given, so "Maybe" was given.
Explanation:  With appropriate safety measure in place, such a measure might make sense.  

VIA Questions 

I. Are you willing to look for more funding options to improve and expand VIA bus service?
Answer: Yes
Explanation:  

J. Will you support free bus rides for all residents of SA?
Answer: Yes  

K. Are you willing to bring Light Rail to a vote?
Answer: Yes
Explanation:  To achieve light rail, the people of San Antonio need to engage in a long-term discussion of its costs and benefits, and I am committed to forging that conversation.
