New Field Representative for Westchester/Playa: Hannah Levien


From Councilmember Bonin

As you probably know, last month Matt Tecle, my field representative for your community, left my staff to work in the field of homelessness services. I was terribly sorry that he left, but I am excited for him, and I am thrilled he will be working to help solve the biggest crisis facing our city and our neighborhoods.

And I am very excited to announce his replacement: Hannah Levien.

Hannah, who once served as my field representative for West LA, Mar Vista and Del Rey, left my team about a year ago to work on the legislative team of my colleague, Paul Krekorian. She returns to District 11 as my deputy district director and as my field representative for Westchester, Playa del Rey, Playa Vista and Ladera.

I am thrilled to have Hannah back on the team. She is smart, energetic, and experienced, and she is determined to provide great service to the amazing neighborhoods of the 11th District. And with so many amazing community leaders like you for her to partner with, I expect great things. Please feel free to reach out to Hannah directly (she is cc'd on this email) to follow up on projects/requests from Matt, or schedule a 1:1 meeting or for any other city-related or district issues. 

Thanks! I hope you are well and taking good care during this public health crisis. I look forward to seeing you (in real life and not on Zoom!) sometime soon.

-Mike
