The fabric of Los Angeles County is woven into Janice Hahn’s DNA. The daughter of former County Supervisor Kenny Hahn, renowned for his long tenure of public service, Janice Hahn has followed in her father’s footsteps throughout every step of her career.
Currently the representative for L.A. County’s 4th District on the Board of Supervisors, Hahn has dedicated her career to a people first agenda.
Underscoring her commitment to great neighborhood schools, she previously served as a classroom teacher. From there, Hahn was elected as a Member of the Los Angeles Charter Reform Commission, and thereafter, to the L.A. City Council where she represented the 15th District. After serving in local government, she was elected to Congress, first representing California’s old 36th District in the U.S. House of Representatives, and after redistricting, she represented California’s 44th district.
On the City Council, Hahn Chaired the Trade, Commerce and Tourism Committee, earning a reputation as an expert on port and airport related issues - working on public safety, infrastructure, environmental protection, transportation issues and more. She also spearheaded innovative crime fighting strategies, bringing the community and police together to curb gang and gun violence by advancing an anti-gang strategy through early intervention, job training and after-school programs.
In Congress, Hahn served on the Small Business Committee, Homeland Security Committee, and was one of the bi-partisan founders of the Ports Opportunity, Renewal, Trade, and Security (PORTS) Caucus, which aimed to raise awareness about the critical importance of our nation’s ports. In Washington, D.C., she worked to protect veterans, create more middle class jobs, safeguard healthcare, ensure clean air and water and fund our education system.
As our representative on the County Board of Supervisors, Hahn has focused like a laser on advancing an agenda that prioritizes working families, women, children, seniors and young people all across the 4th District. In addition to her legislative work on the Board, in 2018, Hahn spearheaded a ballot measure effort that helped win seven measures throughout the 4th District and which funded hundreds of millions of dollars in school funding, public safety and water infrastructure to combat run-off of toxic pollutants while increasing environmental protections.
