She lost races while her brother made the family proud with victory after victory. It felt like a repeat of all those times when they were kids, when her brother's report cards went up on display while hers got stuffed in a drawerI wish her luck in taking on the new mayor. Based on the none-too-subtle rhetoric snaking its way into the LA Times, etc, it seems San Pedro may be made to pay for housing the ousted former Mayor Hahn. Meaning someone, or many someones, out there should take lessons on winning graciously. Politics is politics, I suppose. But this could still be one sh*tty situation for my hometown.
Now that has changed. Janice, 53, is the only Hahn in public office. With her down-home San Pedro folksiness [Ed's note: insert withering sigh here], she sees herself as the one charged with carrying on the family name and legacy — even if it means taking on Villaraigosa during his honeymoon with the city.
Good luck, Councilwoman Hahn.
