Meet Hahn City Hall East

New, 13 comments

City Hall's adjunct building across Main St. has officially been renamed James K. Hahn City Hall East for the former mayor, former city attorney, and current superior court judge. The City Council unanimously passed the resolution today, with Councilmember Paul Koretz saying that "Without a doubt, [Hahn] is the most important mayor ever in the history of the great city of Los Angeles" because of his efforts to stop Valley secession in 2002. Mayor Villaraigosa, who ousted Hahn from the office in 2005, will not have to sign off on the resolution. [City Maven, image via]
