Los Angeles, CA—Today, Supervisor Janice Hahn took part in her first full Metro board meeting as a member of the Board of Directors.  Supervisor Hahn will be a powerful voice in the implementation of major transportation policy and efforts to better connect Los Angeles County residents.

As a Los Angeles County Supervisor, Hahn has a seat on the 14 member board where she will serve on three committees: the Finance, Budget and Audit Committee, the Construction Committee, and the newly created Ad Hoc Congestion Pricing, Highway and Roads Committee.

Supervisor Hahn starts her work on the Metro Board with several priorities, her first being to expedite Measure M transit projects in the Fourth District like the West Santa Ana Branch, the alignment of the Gold Line and the Green Line connection to the Torrance Transit Center.   She also plans to continue the work she started in Congress connecting local youth with jobs and job training in the transportation industry, as well as new efforts to cut emissions and green our county’s extensive transit system.
