Hahn launches website

Jimmy Hahn with dadJimHahn.org is the last of the mayoral campaign websites to get started. It's got the usual bio and endorsements (he leads with the labor unions and puts Eli Broad well down the list) but no blog. There's also a slide show of photos and some pictures from the mayor's past, including his stint as the Dodgers' first honorary bat boy. The 1958 image (right), which won't help the mayor make people forget his nickname Jimmy, shows from the left Gov. Pat Brown, father Kenny Hahn, Dodgers owner Walter O'Malley and I believe Hahn's uncle Gordon, a city councilman at the time.
