Does this have national potential? I turned a radio spot into a video so that we can talk about it on social media and in the bike forum. I am thinking that it is possible that we could make this a nation-wide option where you select your community and the public can easily send messages to local officials. Thoughts?

If you think this has potential and you would like to volunteer to help build this out, please let me know. I'll be posting more bike-related promos soon. Thanks!

It will need to be updated every local election.
Who determines if a municipal entity should be included? For example I know of rural townships that only have gravel roads.
Which level(s) of officials actually have any control/funding of bicycle infrastructure?

Having been involved in metropolitan area bike advocacy, it is a Herculean task just keeping up in a small area.

What I have done in the past when I need help from outside my area is google the local bicycle advocacy non-profit to get me a contact.

In my opinion the gain-to-pain index for your proposal is very low.
