Holden Appointed to Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy Board

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy has helped to preserve some 69,000 acres of wilderness and urban parkland.

Assemblymember Chris Holden (D-Pasadena) has been appointed to the Governing Board of the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, Assembly Speaker John Perez has announced.

"The Conservancy has helped preserve urban parks and wilderness access throughout Southern California and especially in the foothills region of the 41st Assembly District," Holden stated in a press release.

"I look forward to working in partnership with local governments and private landowners to protect and preserve the natural treasures of the San Gabriel foothills."

Holden represents the 41st Assembly District, which includes Monrovia, South Pasadena, Altadena, Pasadena, Sierra Madre, San Dimas, La Verne, Claremont, Upland and Alta Loma (part of Rancho Cucamonga).

The Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy was established by the State Legislature in 1980. Since that time, it has helped to preserve over 69,000 acres of parkland in both wilderness and urban settings.

I have so much respect for this man and the work he has done already in his short tenure. I am so glad Mike Coil recommended him so strongly. Great choice!
