The Honorable Janice Hahn – who represents the 4th District on the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors – will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Congress of Neighborhoods, happening next Saturday, September 22nd, at LA City Hall. As a former member of the US House of Representatives and former LA City Councilmember, Supervisor Hahn has a wealth of diverse political experience, so don’t miss the chance to hear her speak at the Welcome Session kicking off the event at 8:30 am in City Council Chambers.
