It was with deep sadness I learned of the passing of a transit friend, Linda Somilleda. Linda had been with Foothill Transit in West Covina, Calif., for 17 years and was an instrumental part of the leadership team.
According to Director of Marketing and Communications Felicia Friesema, Linda played a huge role in shaping Foothill Transit's brand and image and more recently, taking on challenges in operations and customer service. She was a Leadership APTA (American Public Transportation Association) graduate and believed strongly in APTA's goals and in the importance of Marketing and Communications.
She will be deeply missed by her peers and our thoughts are with her Foothill Transit family, her husband Nick, and her daughter Natalie during this difficult time.
