InfoJanice Kay Hahn

Janice Hahn was elected as Councilwoman of the 15th District of the City of Los Angeles in June of 2001. The 15th District encompasses the communities of Harbor City, Harbor Gateway, San Pedro, Watts and Wilmington.

Councilwoman Hahn serves as the Chair of the Committee on Education & Neighborhoods where she works closely with the newly created citywide network of neighborhood councils to ensure that community stakeholders have a say in local issues. The Councilwoman also serves as Vice Chair of the Commerce, Energy & Natural Resources Committee, overseeing the Port of Los Angeles, LAX and the Department of Water & Power; as Vice Chair of the Board of Referred Powers; and as a member of the Audits & Government Efficiency Committee

From 1997-99, Councilwoman Hahn served the 15th District as its elected representative on the Charter Reform Commission. Included in the new Charter are many elements championed by Councilwoman Hahn, including neighborhood councils, Area Planning Commissions, regular mandatory financial audits of all City departments and permanent local representation on the Harbor and Airport Commissions.

Councilwoman Hahn strongly believes that the best way to keep our children out of gangs is through early prevention, not intervention. To that end, the Councilwoman has focused on providing children with after-school programs and alternatives to gangs. She has been instrumental in getting the Gang Alternatives Program, which works to keep children as young as the 4th grade out of gangs, implemented throughout the 15th District, most recently in Watts. Since taking office, the Councilwoman has also worked to improve City services in our neighborhoods and to ensure public safety and quality of life for all that live, work and play in the 15th District.

She has received numerous awards which include the Bold Vision Award from the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce, the Public Service Award from the African American Chamber of Commerce, the Recognition Award from the Harbor Area Gang Alternative Program and enshrinement on the Promenade of Prominence in Watts.

Councilwoman Janice Hahn is the daughter of the late Los Angeles County Supervisor Kenneth Hahn and the sister of current Los Angeles Mayor James Hahn. She is a lifelong resident of Los Angeles and lives in San Pedro. She has two sons Danny, 22, and Mark, 19; and a daughter Katy, 25, who is married to John Yates. John and Katy recently gave the Councilwoman a granddaughter, McKenna Elise, who was born in June.
