Live from San Pedro, it’s Saturday Morning

Catch Hahn’s Swearing-in and Hopefully Not a Hog-Wild Mass of Motorcycles

Councilwoman Holds Community Ceremony in Wilmington

Councilwoman Janice Hahn will hold a ceremonial swearing-in event today (June 27) at 10:30 a.m. at the Banning Residence Museum, 401 E. M St. in Wilmington. City Attorney-elect Carmen “Nuch” Trutanich will introduce the councilwoman and her brother, James Hahn, will administer the oath of office. Free hot dogs and soft drinks will be served. (Here’s the invitation).

Hahn’s formal swearing-in takes place Wednesday at City Hall in downtown L.A., where she will take the oath in a citywide ceremony with the mayor, city attorney, city controller and city council members from odd-numbered districts.

On Alert for Bikers, Reportedly Not Coming to Coastal San Pedro

The alarm bells rang this week when word circulated that the motorcycle club that brought thousands of bikers to San Pedro for a non-permitted event last summer was holding a picnic Saturday.

According to the Daily Breeze, the club is not planning to hold its event in San Pedro. City officials say that no permits have been issued for a large-scale gathering. The club’s website does not post anything about a Saturday event.

Nonetheless, Councilwoman Janice Hahn’s office asked the police to add extra patrols to cite motorcyclists whose bikes exceed lawful noise levels and potentially disperse an unpermitted assembly.

Hi there:


In addition, LAPD, would it be possible for you to monitor the motorcycle noise levels and issue citations as fit appropriate? Please feel free to contact me with any questions. Thank you for your attention to this matter.


I've seen the crowd. Maybe a traffic guy/gal with the white gloves to keep the flow of traffic moving through the four way stop...?? The week-end traffic will be bad enough with the summer weather and your making the suggestion of spending tons of money and snarling traffic worse with a monitoring device...? The weather will be cool when compared to pissed off local motorists....keep the traffic moving and the crowd will roar out of town just like they roared into town.. Is your boss termed out because your idea to ease congestion on a hot kalifornia week-end sure seems like it.. Lucky me already have plans that will get me out of Pedro at about 4:33am Saturday morning an return...........???
