On Feb. 9, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger announced the launch of her re-election campaign for Fifth District Supervisor – a top local government leadership position she has held since her initial election in 2016.
By News Desk
Barger enters the Supervisorial race with strong backing from numerous labor organizations and dozens of Fifth District city mayors and council members.
I am launching this re-election campaign with a lot of enthusiasm and focus. I have worked hard to keep public safety, homelessness, and investing in local businesses front and center through my policy motions and strong collaborations with stakeholders from a variety of public and private sectors. I am proud of my work and progress on challenging the status quo on homelessness, funding more law enforcement patrols to fight crime, and expanding care for our communities – but there is more to be done. My bid for a third and final term reflects my commitment to keeping up the fight to bring the change L.A. County residents demand and need.
I have developed a reputation as a no-nonsense, hard-working leader. I’ve demonstrated an unwavering commitment to collaboration and have served as a constant advocate for Fifth District municipalities and workers. The endorsements my campaign has received to date are a testament to my track record. I believe this show of support is just the beginning of what will be resolute backing from cities, labor, and community leaders.
Barger was re-elected for a second term in an outright victory in the March 2020 primary.
The election will take place March 5, 2024.
