Bonnie Walker Election Statement


Bonnie Walker
Road Committee - Commissaire

I reside in Austin, TX and like others who are seeking a position on the Sports Committees, have been involved with cycling for many years as a rider, race director and official. For the past 3 years, I have been a member of the Road Committee serving as the Local Association representative. I have been instrumental in the Texas Bicycle Racing Association (TXBRA) since its inception in late 2000, where I am currently the treasurer as well as hold the responsibility for reviewing permits, processing post-event reports, assigning officials, and representing TXBRA as USA Cycling’s Local Association Representative.  
For 2013, I am running for the Commissaire position on the Road Committee. As an official, I am recognized as a National Commissaire in road and track disciplines and am involved with events at the local, regional, and national level. As a member of the Road Committee I have been an active member participating in discussions and providing feedback as needed. I have represented the local associations in the past and feel I can represent my fellow officials going forward. The Road Committee is a team of representatives from across the country that provides guidance to USA Cycling on a variety of things as it pertains to the road aspect of cycling. This has included new rules being considered, rules that are being re-written, as well as rules that are being eliminated. In addition, I have worked closely with a select group of individuals to review and prepare various levels of certifications for Race Directors. 
I am eager to continue this type of effort as your Commissaire elected to the Road Committee. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to tell you a little bit about myself. If you decide to vote for me, I’d like to thank you in advance for your confidence and I look forward to representing you for the next three years.
