Bicycle Longmont has a great working relationship with our City Government. I think the most fundamental thing we do is approach every issue with a "How do we work together to make this work for everyone." plus we work our tails off to make all our partners look like rockstars in the community. We don't suck up, we just promote the hell out of the successes. An easy way is to tag everyone you're working with on a project on facebook and twitter. Most people in decision making roles still feel social media is a "black box" and somewhat magical. Which makes us the wizards of social media and they think it's cool when someone in the community hours after the success says - way-to-go Mayor!

Hello All, This is a question for those of you who's projects have a good relationship with your local government. What does that look like? How did this relationship develop? What kind of support or recognition do you receive from your city?
Thanks y'all! Ann the Santa Cruz Bike Church
