Janice Hahn spoke about her brother keeping all of his campaign promises. She also gave an emotional tribute to her brother and about how her father would be and is proud of him.
Zine spoke about his trip to Hawaii and being able to see the Hahns (Janice and Jim) in speedos. About the "lovely" time he had with them, but not like "that". He also jabbed Greuel for not seeing Jim in speedos. He also thanked Jim for his time in office.
Padilla talked about thanking him for his leadership.
Villaraigosa recounted on a question he was asked about Hahn 4 years ago by Rick Orlov. He also told everyone in the room that he had big shoes to fill.
Hahn thanked everyone for their service and his ability to serve with them. He spoke about his father and his chance to make a difference.
Kudos to the advance team getting Randy Newman's "I Love LA" on the webcast version. I say this because Hahn's last words to his speech were "I Love LA."
Thats it from City Hall.
