Four join bike-ped committee

Please extend good-luck wishes to the four new members of Miami-Dade's Bicycle-Pedestrian Advisory Committee. Appointed at the December meeting of the Metropolitan Planning Organization were:
  • Jamie Caulkins, who is working for the University of Miami Medical School creating a bike safety program under the wings of the UM WalkSafe program. He's an appointee of County Commissioner Dorrin Rolle.
  • Anne-Marie Jonckheer, from the North Miami Parks Department, appointed by Mayor Andre Pierre.
  • Matthew Toro, a university student who has served on the committee in the past. He was appointed by Coral Gables City Commissioner William Kerdyk Jr.
  • John Voss, vice president of the Oleta River Adventure Association, which runs mountain-biking activity at Oleta River State Park. He's also a past president of Everglades Bicycle Club and has been a key advocate for building mountain bike trails on Virginia Key. He was appointed by County Commissioner Audrey Edmonson.
These additions bring the group up to 17 members, which is as large as I recall it ever being. Congratulations, all of you!
