#184 Scott Walker: Non-Motorized Transportation Guru

(Airdate: September 7, 2021) Our Town host Maryanne McNellis interviews Scott Walker, a passionate advocate for non-motorized transportation. Scott’s day job is as an electrical contractor. He’s owned and run Current Electric since the early 1990s. But for the past 35 years most of his energy has been devoted to trying to wean Jefferson County from the car. Back in the 1980s he was part of the group that instigated our system of trails. Over the years he’s been on every committee and advisory board that could possibly influence transit. According to Scott, 66% of the greenhouse gas in Port Townsend comes from auto emissions. That’s deplorable in his book! He dreams of a “walkable, bike-able town” and has mapped out how to achieve it.
