Solutions that Work


“Traffic makes you late for work and keeps you away from your families. With the Gold Line, we now have alternatives for our commutes. I will continue advocating to extend the Gold Line further until it connects the Burbank and Ontario Airports.”  - Chris Holden

Chris Holden was an early advocate of the Gold Line because he knew it had the potential to transform San Gabriel Valley residents’ commutes and help bring new customers to local businesses.

Now, more riders are enjoying an alternative to sitting in traffic by catching the Gold Line at new stations located in Arcadia, Monrovia, Duarte, Irwindale, and Azusa.

Chris pushed for the state to fund $290 million for the addition of six new stations from Glendora to Montclair. This new extension will help connect the San Gabriel Valley and Inland Empire and bring shorter commutes and economic activities to more cities.

Chris also introduced a plan to extend the Gold Line further to connect the Burbank and Ontario Airports, a solution that will bring climate action and economic benefits to the region.




“The dreams of pursuing higher education continues to be out of reach for many students. That’s why I passed a law that allows students to enroll in high school and college at the same time.”  - Chris Holden

Chris Holden fought to establish the College and Career Pathways Act, which provides students with the opportunity to take college courses while they are in high school.

Community colleges and high schools are building partnerships and providing better access to college and career tech courses that may not be available in high school.

Students are taking advantage of this opportunity and jumpstarting their college careers or pursuing a certificate in career technical education.



“We can’t wait to act on climate change. I’ve been working to protect the San Gabriel Valley’s precious resources and invest in alternative technologies that balance the need for economic growth with preserving our environment.”
