Congressman Schiff thanks Alhambra; APD receives grant for anti-bullying program

Congressman Adam Schiff briefly stopped by Monday evening’s Alhambra City Council meeting to thank council members and residents for the 10 years he served as district representative. Councilman Yamauchi credited him for awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to war veterans during his tenure. Due to redistricting, newly re-elected Rep. Judy Chu is now representing Alhambra in Congress.

Carmen Hernandez, director of Library Services and president of Rotary Club in Alhambra, awarded a $2,000 grant award to Police Chief Mark Yokoyama to fund anti-bullying assemblies and student empowerment in two Alhambra local elementary schools. No date has been announced for these events. 

New Mayor Dr. Steven Placido had a heated exchange with resident Lola Armendariz, who requested answers about several items on the city’s Strategic Plan. Placido wanted to defer to the department heads, who, he said, could answer the questions better than he could. Armendariz said she has not received any answers from the department heads in the past. Placido then assured her that if she does not get any response from them, she can let him know at the next meeting.

First St., Alhambra, Calif., 91801. The next meeting will be held on Monday, March 18, 2013, 5:30 pm at the Alhambra Civic Center Library.
