She said she intends to support the America Fast Forward initiative, which seeks to create jobs without affecting the federal deficit through loans and bonds for transportation and infrastructure investments.

While focusing on job creation, Hahn wants to pay attention to opportunities to go green through the utilization of technology and the growth of jobs in the clean-energy industry.

“I think we’re the perfect place to begin expanding that industry,” she said.

Hahn also plans to tackle veterans’ issues during her time in Congress, including unemployment and homelessness. “While I’m pushing for us to end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, I want to focus on what happens when our veterans come home,” she said.

With these issues on her mind, Hahn said she is ready to get started, despite recently finishing an election that she described as “the most difficult, hard fought victory I have ever had.”

“It battle-tested me in ways that I hadn’t been yet,” she said.
