Reporter Fred Ortega went to an MTA meeting today where it was expected that the board would fund the Gold LIne extension. In our story today, Rep. Hilda Solis, D-El Monte, says it was a sure thing and was backed by LA Mayor Antonio Villiagrosa. The funds weren’t approved and the mayor was MIA.
UPDATE: Here’s Ortega’s story. No one would say why it happened. But we are at a point where we now have to ask is it ever going to be built.
