#DamienTalksSGV 16 : Mayor Sam Pedroza and Bike SGV’s Jose Jimenez

This week, #DamienTalks with Claremont Mayor and Foothill Transit Board Member Sam Pedroza and Bike SGV Education Director Jose Jimenez.

The conversation with Mayor Pedroza is pretty wide- ranging, but covers three major areas: the expansion of Livable Streets in Claremont, the flexibility of Foothill Transit as it seeks to maximize the value of its service and this fall's transportation sales tax ballot measure, Measure M.

Much of the discussion of Claremont focuses on a complete streets plan for Claremont's portion of the iconic Route 66. Doug Lewis wrote an in-depth story on the plan for Streetsblog earlier this summer. That story can be found, here.

You can give feedback to Mayor Padroza on his Twitter, @CouncilmanSam.

Next, we talk with Jose Jimenez, the education director for Bike SGV. Jimenez provides an update on the Bike Education Center in El Monte and some of the classes it's offering this fall and winter. For more on the Education Center, visit Bike SGV's website.

#DamienTalks is supported by Foothill Transit, offering car-free travel throughout the San Gabriel Valley with connections to the new Gold Line Stations across the Foothills and Commuter Express lines traveling into the heart of Downtown L.A.
