Hahn, Barger take new seats in county’s fourth, fifth districts

Janice Hahn and Kathryn Barger were each sworn in this week as the new members of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Their elections give the five-member panel a female majority and a decidedly progressive bent. Hahn and Barger replace Supervisors Don Knabe and Michael Antonovich in representing the county’s Fourth and Fifth Districts, respectively. Knabe and Antonovich termed out after a combined 56 years in office.
