Just one year ago this month, Californians made a landmark decision to elect Arnold Schwarzenegger as our governor in the historic recall election. Since then, California has recaptured optimism and pride in our state and our future. More than 120,000 new jobs have been created in California, with 41,700 of them in the San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire. Under the leadership of Gov. Schwarzenegger, California has gotten its fiscal house into shape with a responsible budget without raising taxes.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich today called for a review of expenditures made by the Metro Gold Line Foothill Extension Construction Authority -- the latest volley after three high-profile officials, including South Pasadena Councilman Michael Cacciotti, left the authority board earlier this year following conflict-of-interest accusations. The motion to the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority -- co-authored by fellow board directors Glendale City Councilman Ara Najarian and county Supervisor Don Knabe -- also calls for an independent review of the Exposition Metro Line Construction and Alameda Corridor-East Construction authorities.

Robert Chacon La Canada Flintridge officials are happy that a state commission withdrew its support of a report about the Long Beach (710) Freeway connection to the Foothill (210) Freeway. The move will indefinitely delay the project, which the city had opposed because officials feared it would bring more traffic through the area on the 210. The California Transportation Commission on Wednesday withdrew its support for an environmental report that emphasized the need for the proposed 4.5-mile extension to connect the freeways in Pasadena.
