I read this is a blog “She, Councilwoman Janice Hahn, showed us what an exemplary politician does when her cousin’s cush job lighthouse-sitting job is lost to the budget crisis. She, Janice Hahn, gets it restored!"

If anyone has any confirmation this is true, let the readers know.

First pink slip gets Hahn’s goat

The first pink slip in the City's layoff process was handed out earlier this week to one Kristen Heather, curator of the Point Fermin lighthouse museum.

Heather is an at-will employee and therefore has no union protection. Same as most non-Union folks.

Nonetheless, Janice Hahn is furious over Heather's pink slip and is sabre-rattling like all get-out. Hahn railed against the heinous act in City Council this past Wednesday, insisting she was shocked and stunned that Heather received her two-week notice.

We're not really sure why Hahn should be surprised. After all, Hahn voted for the 1,000 layoffs. She voted for the 4,000 layoffs, too.

Janice Hahn's office states Heather is not related to Hahn. According to our sources, Heather is related to Hahn by marriage. We will continue to investigate this aspect of the story.
