Nury Martinez

Tomorrow at 2 pm, the Streetsblog Summer Series continues with an exclusive interview with CD 6 City Council candidate Nury Martinez 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. Our interview with Montañez was broadcast yesterday and is archived at SoCal Streetstube and Streetsblog LITE.

As always, if you have any questions for Martinez 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.

We look forward to an exciting conversation.

And for those of you living in CD 6, just a reminder to get in your absentee ballots by tomorrow night or vote on Tuesday.
