SGV Connect 117: Alhambra Councilmember Adele Andrade-Stadler and Artist Steve Farley

SGV Connect podcast interviews Alhambra City Councilmember Adele Andrade-Stadler and Pomona Gold Line Station Artist Steve Farley

This week's SGV Connect features a pair of interviewees working to improve the lives of residents of the San Gabriel Valley.

First, SBLA talks with Alhambra Councilmember Adele Andrade-Stadler. Andrade-Stadler is the winner of this year's Elected Official of the Year award given by ActiveSGV at their Noche de las Luminarias. Read more about her award and her relationship with ActiveSGV at their ActiveBlog

At the end of the interview, Andrade-Stadler discusses the upcoming Sustainability Plan for Alhambra that should be released for public review later this month. Read a transcript of the interview, here.

The second interview is with Steve Farley. While Farley is a long-time Streetsblog reader (he drops a reference to Aaron Naperstek who founded Streetsblog in 2006) and a former State Senator in Arizona, it's his art that the interview focuses on. Farley is the artist creating the public art that will grace the under construction A (Gold) Line Station in Pomona. Read a transcript of the interview, here.
