International LA County

Elected to serve on November 8th, 2016 Supervisor Janice Hahn proudly represents the interests of the 4th District – stretching from Marina del Rey to Diamond Bar and encompassing over 2 million residents – on the Board of Supervisors.

Born and raised in LA County, Janice has followed in the footsteps of her father, the legendary LA County Supervisor Kenny Hahn, throughout every step of her public service career. On the Board of Supervisors and now as Chair of the Board, she has advanced a people-first agenda and continued her lifelong dedication to lifting up working families.

Now in her third year in office, Supervisor Hahn continues to invest in public resources which benefit her constituents the most. She has invested billions of dollars into building affordable public housing, improving public parks, renovating local libraries, and more – all the while securing the funding necessary to build a series of ambitious transportation projects which will ease congestion and revolutionize the way we get around.
Supervisor Hahn has harnessed the County’s resources to fund services which help residents in crisis get back on their feet. In the past three years, she has worked tirelessly to end the homelessness crisis, provide legal representation to undocumented residents, and establish LA Found, a program which helps locate older adults living with Alzheimer’s, Autism, and dementia who have gone missing as a result of “wandering.”

Underscoring her commitment to excellent local schools, Supervisor Hahn began her career as a teacher. She then went on to serve on the Los Angeles Charter Reform Commission as well as the City Council representing the 15th District. After serving in local government, Supervisor Hahn was elected to Congress, first representing California’s old 36th District and then the 44th District after redistricting. Throughout her time in public service, Supervisor Hahn has continued her commitment to the interests of local working families. She currently lives in San Pedro and enjoys spending time with her 5 grandchildren.
