We’d like to congratulate Judy Chu for becoming the Congresswoman for California’s 32nd Congressional District. She won the July 14 special election to fill the seat vacated by U.S. Labor Secretary Hilda Solis. Dr. Chu always has been a staunch supporter of the Gold Line Foothill Extension – not just for the benefit of the San Gabriel Valley but for the entire Los Angeles County region. She joins Congress members Adam Schiff of the 29th District, David Dreier of the 26th District, and Grace Napolitano of the 38th District as our voices for the San Gabriel Valley in Congress. This quartet has been vocal and active in supporting the extension, and they will continue to fight for the entire line until it reaches Ontario Airport.
“I will fight hard for the San Gabriel Valley’s fair share of infrastructure dollars, bringing federal dollars to projects like the Gold Line Foothill Extension from Pasadena to Montclair and the 10/605 freeway interchange upgrade.
Fully funding these crucial, ready-to-go projects will not only immediately generate hundreds of badly needed jobs and provide a jolt to the local economy, but they will also address the long-standing transportation issues of the Valley, saving residents and businesses the untold millions of dollars in productivity lost on our region’s gridlocked freeways.”
“The pollution is getting worse and more people are moving to these areas. We need to alleviate the traffic congestion + we cannot pave our way out of it. Public transportation expansion is the way of the future.”
“I’m all for public transportation, not just in my area, but all through the greater L.A. area. Private autos are set to become a thing of the past as resources become scarce. This line, and others like it, cannot be built quickly enough!”
