Streetsblog Summer Series Interviews Cindy Montañez

Tomorrow at 11 am, the Streetsblog Summer Series continues with an exclusive interview with CD 6 City Council candidate Cindy Montañez that we will broadcast live on our YouTube page, SoCal StreetsTube. After Council Member Tony Cardenas was elected to Congress, a vacancy appeared in his old Council District. The election will be held next week.

The primary for the open seat was held the same day as the Mayoral election and other Council Districts, with Montañez and Nury Martinez emerging from the pack. We have reached out to both campaigns and if we hear from Martinez for an interview time, we’ll let you know.

As always, if you have any questions for Montañez you can leave them in the comments section or tweet with hashtag #sblasummer. We’ll be talking about transportation issues in the East San Fernando Valley including the lack of sidewalks in some area and the East San Fernando Valley Transit Corridor Project.

As always, the final broadcast will be archived online and posted here on Streetsblog. We look forward to an exciting conversation.
