Changes to the Metro Board of Directors

Kathryn Barger, who was elected to replace Michael D. Antonovich as Los Angeles County Supervisor for the Fifth District, has joined the Metro Board, as has Janice Hahn, former member of the U.S. House of Representatives, who has replaced Don Knabe as Supervisor of the Fourth District. All five members of the Board of Supervisors sit on the 13-member Metro Board. Both Antonovich and Knabe were prohibited from running again for Supervisor due to term limits.

Long Beach Mayor Robert Garcia has also been elected to the Metro Board, replacing Diane DuBois of Lakewood.

And existing Board Member Ara Najarian, a Glendale City Council Member, has been re-elected to serve another four-year term on the Metro Board. He has served on the Board since 2006.

“As we continue our work on delivering the Measure M projects, we look forward to the additional ideas and experiences the new board members will bring to the process,” said Metro Board Chair and Duarte City Council Member John Fasana. “It’s an important time and the Measure M projects are poised to change our region for the better. We welcome the input of our new colleagues.”

The 13-member Metro Board of Directors consisted of elected officials and their appointees from Los Angeles County. The Board makes many of the final decisions for the agency and serves as a way for the agency to be accountable to the public. The full list of Board Members is here along with contact information.

The full Board meets once each month. Board Members also sit on committees that first consider items going to the full Board. Here are the committee assignments going forward:
