Ramona Convent student Andrea G. ’22 was recently appointed to the Alhambra Youth Commission by City Council Member Ross Maza. Andrea attended a City Council meeting a few weeks ago and expressed her opinion regarding the SR 710 North freeway discussion. Her testimony was to encourage that the City of Alhambra look into improving traffic signals in and around Fremont/Altantic/Valley and I-10 because she noted the three schools that are in the area (Ramona, Marguerita and Fremont) and how it is astounding that it takes over 15 minutes just to get into the community. She questioned whether closing the freeway stub between the I-10 and Valley was wise because traffic would only divert into the neighborhoods surrounding the school.
Andrea’s testimony got the attention of Mayor Andrade-Stadler who asked her if she was on the youth commission. She applied and was nominated by Ambar Gutierrez ’18 who also served as a Youth Commissioner (she recently resigned since she is away at school). Congratulations, Andrea!
