Congresswoman Hilda Solis sent out a mailer, which was “prepared, published and mailed at taxpayer expense,” detailing the money that she has secured for communities in the SGV. Here’s how its broken down:
South El Monte: Secured $47,000 to teach at-risk youth computer and other skills through Project Amiaga’s Transistional Life Skills for At-Risk Youth Project.
-Secured $73,000 to upgrade computer techonology in the Valle Lindo School District.
Rosemead: Secured $98,700 for graffiti and vandalism responses.
Irwindale: Secured $225,600 for updated communications equipment for the police department.
-Secured $28,200 for the city to expand after school activities and weekend youth programs.
Baldwin Park: Secured $400,000 to replace older transit buses with clean enery buses.
West Covina: Secured $517,000 to update its emergency communications system.
Azusa: Secured $477,000 to provide dental services at the Azusa Health Center
-Secured $150,000 to renovate the National Guard Armory.
She also lists regional projects:
-$3 million for the San Gabriel Basin Restoration Fund
-$235,000 for the Court Appointed Special Advocates Volunteer Program
-$282,000 for the Tune Up Tune In program at Rio Hondo College and ELAC
She also says that she is a “strong supporter of federal assistance for Foothill Tranist, the Alameda Corridor-East and extension of Metro Gold Liune through Azusa, Irwindale and Duarte.” But since no money is listed, I am assuming she didn’t help secure any funding for those projects.
