Rep. Janice Hahn knows about getting a professional sports team to relocate from one city to another. Her late father, Kenneth Hahn, a longtime member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, helped talk Walter O’Malley into bringing the Dodgers from Brooklyn to L.A.

Which is why she was one of the people chosen to speak Friday at a news conference that officially announced the plan for the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders to build an NFL stadium in Carson.

“All they wanted was a new stadium,” Hahn (D-Los Angeles) said of the Dodgers back in the 1950s. “This is the same situation.”

She added to much applause: “We want the Chargers to know. We want the Raiders to know. If you can’t work it out with your respective cities, we will welcome you with open arms in Carson.”
