Supervisor Janice Hahn releases statement on the Election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris

Los Angeles, CA– Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn released the following statement  on the election of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as the next President and Vice President of the United States:

“The race has been called and the American people have decided: Joe Biden is the next President of the United States. 100 years after women won their right to vote, a Black woman has been elected Vice President of the United States. This is a proud day for our nation.

Now the real work begins. The Biden-Harris Administration and the new Congress have their work cut out for them addressing the ongoing pandemic and the economic fallout it has created, earning back the confidence of our allies, and repairing our wounded institutions.

For first time since Ronald Reagan, we are sending a Californian to the White House. As our state’s junior senator, Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris understands the challenges we face—whether it is the housing crisis and homelessness, or the need to expand access to mental healthcare. She is in our corner and I cannot wait to work with her and President Biden on behalf of LA County.”
