Streetsblog TV: Senator Gil Cedillo after Last Night’s CD1 Forum

10:47 AM PST on February 11, 2013

Yesterday afternoon, Occidental College and the Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition hosted a forum for the three candidates on the ballot vying to replace Ed Reyes in Council District 1. The debate was quite a bit more spirited than the CD 11 debate held two weeks ago, and Streetsblog L.A. caught up with the candidates afterwards. You can watch the entire forum at Streetsblog TV

Senator Cedillo was the first candidate we interviewed last night, and he was happy to discuss the "Downtown Rebound." The Rebound was a hot topic during the forum, with his opponents portraying the changes in Downtown as benefitting developers more than the citizens of CD 1. Here, we give Cedillo to talk about the impacts that the Rebound has had on the transportation and Smart Growth climate in the Downtown.

Also during the forum, Cedillo talked about the impact of seeing some of the best practices in transportation and planning in the great cities of the world. We asked him about a trip he took to the Nethherlands, but he went on to talk about experiences in Mexico City and other world-class cities.
