U.S. Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Burbank) was sworn in for his 12th term on Jan. 7 serving California’s new 30th Congressional District, which now includes Hancock Park, Larchmont Village, Miracle Mile and Park La Brea.
The new 30th District, with boundaries created through redistricting, also includes nearly all of Schiff’s former district, including the communities of West Hollywood, Hollywood, East Hollywood, the Hollywood Hills, Griffith Park, Los Feliz, Echo Park, Silver Lake, Atwater Village, Burbank, Glendale and Pasadena.
“It is a tremendous honor to begin 2023 as the representative for California’s new 30th Congressional District. To my longtime constituents of the former 28th District, I am grateful for your continued confidence, and look forward to building on the progress we have made together. To my new constituents, I cannot wait to get to know you and your families better, and to work on your behalf to make our communities healthier, safer and more prosperous for all,” Schiff said. “We ushered in a new year and a new Congress, where many changes are coming – but my commitment to improving the lives of all Californians and Americans remains the same. We must fight for an economy that works for everyone. We must continue lowering costs for working families and tamping down inflation. We must sustain our fight to defend people’s fundamental freedoms – from reproductive rights to voting rights to the right to live free from fear of hate crimes and gun violence. We must continue aggressively pursuing bold, historic climate action. We must take action on housing and homelessness. And we must continue protecting the democratic institutions and systems that make all such progress possible.”
Cindy Chvatal-Keane, president of the Hancock Park Homeowners Association, said she is encouraged about the new representation and is looking forward to meeting with Schiff and his staff in the near future.
“I think it is a really positive thing,” Chvatal-Keane said. “People already know him in this neighborhood. I think he has been very active and engaging with constituents in his district, not to mention his efforts in keeping democracy in place in our country.”
Schiff said he is also optimistic as he begins his new term in the 118th Congress.
“The list of priorities is long – but nothing motivates me more than the trust and determination of my constituents,” Schiff said. “Your perseverance, in the face of the many challenges we face together, gives me confidence that we can achieve meaningful, lasting solutions, and I enter this new chapter with nothing but gratitude and resolve.”
