Adele Andrade-Stadler was elected to the Alhambra City Council in November 2018 and re-elected in 2022, now serving as Mayor. An Alhambra resident for over 30 years, Adele previously served on the Alhambra Unified School District's Board of Education for 14 years, where she advocated for facilities improvements, dual college enrollment, and language programs, among other issues.
Recognizing the importance of multi-modal mobility for students, families, and residents of all ages to get where they need to go, Mayor Andrade-Stadler has supported safer streets for all. Within her district, she has encouraged City staff to pilot new traffic calming approaches such as speed tables, neighborhood traffic circles, and speed humps to realize Safer Routes to School. Along Poplar Ave, an east-west corridor with a well-documented history of vehicle collisions, she supported implementing the City's first safer streets demonstration project, which included high-visibility crosswalks and dedicated bike lanes. The Mayor has staunchly supported developing the City's first Active Transportation Plan.
Over the past few years, Mayor Andrade-Stadler also supported the City's first Zero Waste policy (a local "Skip the Stuff" ordinance limiting the use of single-use plastic utensils in take-out food delivery); the City's first Open Streets events ("Mission-to-Mission"); and the City's first Climate Action Plan – currently in development.
Mayor Stadler is also active on the regional level. As a director within the Southern California Association of Governments, she plays a vital role in the region's transportation and housing committees. She chairs the Los Angeles County Department of Social Services Commission, holds the executive director position at Voices of Immigrant Students of Alhambra (VISA), and supports the Alhambra High School Dream Resource Center. In these roles, she regularly emphasizes the importance of fostering city-school partnerships to build exceptional communities.
Adele’s work is supported by her husband Joe and daughter Ramona.
