Big news for Los Angeles is that Rep. Janice Hahn declared last week that she will run for the 4th District seat on the LA County Board of Supervisors. Supervisor Don Knabe will be term-limited out at the end of next year, and there will most likely be a primary in June of 2016. Rep. Hahn has many years of public service experience for the people of Los Angeles, and will be a formidable candidate because she is so well known in the community.

Election time has come around again fast - local elections in California including several in Los Angeles will be held on March 3rd. We will be choosing City Council, school board and community college district board members, and in some ways this election is even more important than the elections we just went through in November. These local officials will determine what Los Angeles' future looks like, and how day-to-day living will change in our city going forward.
