League Welcomes Caron Whitaker to Our Staff
I am delighted to announce that Caron Whitaker has accepted a position as Vice President of Government Relations, starting on December 1.
Caron has a tremendous track record of effective legislative work on Capitol Hill and at the state level, most recently as campaign manager for the America Bikes coalition. In that role, Caron has developed tremendous contacts and a huge amount of respect on Capitol Hill, as well as a great relationship with state and local bicycle advocacy leaders. Caron will continue the League’s critical role representing as the voice of cyclists in Washington DC, with an extra emphasis on connecting the Federal legislation to our members, affiliates and partner groups at the state and local level.
The new transportation bill passed in June of this year really demands a greater focus on state and local campaigns to invest in bicycling, thus Caron will be working closely with the Advocacy Advance team to boost our work in that area.
