After noticeably beefing up the number of press releases sent from her Los Angeles City Council office this past year, Janice Hahn finally announced her official bid for to be California's Lieutenant Governor, an elected government position the public probably knows the least about. Her first press release announces her campaign team (copied below in full), which includes John Shallman, who consulted on the nasty and losing battle for Chris Essel in the recent Council District 2 race, and the young and hard nosed Michael Trujillo (he just had a birthday!), a former anonymous-then-outed blogger at Mayor Sam's Sister City.
