Ramona freshman Andrea Gutierrez was recently appointed to the Alhambra Youth Commission by Alhambra Vice Mayor Ross Maza. Andrea attended a City Council meeting and expressed her opinion regarding the SR 710 North freeway discussion. Her testimony was meant to encourage the City of Alhambra to look into improving traffic signals in and around Fremont. Atlantic, and Valley and the I-10 because she noted the three schools that are in the area (Ramona, Marguerita, and Fremont) and how it is astounding that it takes over 15 minutes just to get into the community.
She questioned whether closing the freeway stub between the I-10 and Valley was wise because traffic would only divert into the neighborhoods surrounding the school. Her testimony got the attention of Mayor Andrade-Stadler who asked her if she was on the youth commission. She applied and was nominated by Ramona alumna Ambar Gutierrez, who also served as a Youth Commissioner (she recently resigned since she is away at school). Her school community looks forward to seeing her further develop as a leader with her new responsibilities.
