In this week's episode, Damien and Kris kick off the new(ish) year by talking about the best ways to get involved and an update on plans for the Gold Line Foothill Extension's next phase.
First, Damien talks with Dorothy Wong, a long-time bike advocate who now serves as a Council Member in Altadena. Wong has been active with groups locally (such as C.I.C.L.E.) and statewide (she served as a board member for Calbike). In this interview, she discusses how advocacy prepared her for her campaign and her position and urges people to get and stay involved in local government.
In our second interview Kris talks to Joe Linton who catches us up on the status of the Gold Line Foothill Extension. A lot's been happening since the Construction Authority changed plans at the end of last year, but Metro gave the Authority's plans a thumbs up at their Board Meeting last week.
