State Senator Kevin De Leon's Mount Washington Staff

Natalie Seaman

Kevin De Leon represents Mount Washington along with a diverse swath of LA Country including Hollywood, Downtown LA, Pico-Union, parts of Pasadena, etc. He has been a presence here at many local events and his staff folks are often also in the ‘hood.  Recently I caught up with Kevin and asked him, who, among his staff, is assigned to Mount Washington?

The answer was: Jorge Nunez ( and Alana Yanez ( Both Jorge and Alana are Highland Park residents, have been with Kevin for over five years, and are knowledgeable about getting things done for constituents. I guess Kevin thinks that it takes more than one person to handle Mount Washington, which is a good assessment in my mind!
