Heather Hutt serves as the Councilwoman for the Tenth District. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Hutt is the first woman in history and the first black woman to be appointed as a voting member for the district.
A public servant for over 30+ years, Hutt has dedicated her life to activism, public service, and her community. She recently served as the first Black U.S. Senate State Director in California’s history, and in her capacity serving Senator Kamala D. Harris, Hutt was the principal representative among constituents and elected leaders throughout California. In that role, she advocated for women by bringing together healthcare professionals to discuss implicit bias in health care, especially for women and women of color as well as advocating for DACA recipients and fighting against the Trump Administration’s assault on immigrants. Hutt was the first African American woman to serve as a Council District chief of staff since 1973.
As the Councilwoman, my priority will always be to serve. In these next few months, we aim to continue to provide services and resources to residents. We will be doubling down on our investments to house our unhoused neighbors, building parks that are equitable, safe and accessible, and making our constituents proud to call this district their home - because this district is our home too.
