Janice Hahn is running for LA County Supervisor

February 26   |   Posted by


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.
