Even by check passing standards, Tuesday’s event with Congresswoman Judy Chu and local leaders was a doozy. Pictured above (L-R) are Chu, Claremont Mayor Jed Leano and Rimmi Hundal, executive director of Tri City Mental Health discussing plans for a new 15-unit low-income housing project at the future site at 956 W. Base Line Road. The congresswoman was in town to hand over the $3 million check, a portion of which will go toward getting the project off the ground. The federal money came from a House Appropriations bill sponsored by Representative Chu.
