Christi Hogin, the City of Malibu’s longtime City Attorney, was recently elected President of the League of California Cities Attorneys’ Department. The League of California Cities is an “association of California city officials who work together to enhance their knowledge and skills, exchange information, and combine resources so that they may influence policy decisions that affect cities,” according to the organization’s website.
The league, which currently includes 433 municipalities, was originally founded in 1898.
“We need to congratulate our City Attorney Christi Hogin on her election as president,” Mayor John Sibert said at the Oct. 14 City Council meeting, launching into a list of accolades Hogin has earned over her career.
“On behalf of the City Council, we would like to congratulate Christi Hogin on her election as President of the League of California Cities Attorneys’ Department for the year 2015-16,” Sibert said.
“Let me say something I never get to say,” Hogin, City Attorney for Lomita, Malibu and Palos Verdes Estates, told council. “This city is my first love.
“I have so much respect for this community’s courage, its courage of its own convictions, its willingness to come out as a leader for local control, to stand its ground, to cherish the things that are beautiful about the earth and about each other.”
