Dinner Meeting with Kathryn Barger
May 21, 2019 @ 5:45 pm - 8:00 pm
Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger looks forward to meeting with the members of the San Marino City Club in her hometown on Tuesday, May 21. She will discuss her recent trip to Washington, D.C., where she advocated for county issues including serving foster youth and expanding transportation and infrastructure projects. Barger also looks forward to sharing about initiatives she’s leading at home in the Fifth District and answering questions from attendees.
Supervisor Kathryn Barger serves the residents of Los Angeles County’s 5th Supervisorial District, the County’s largest. It spans 2,800 square miles, which includes 22 cities and 70 unincorporated communities in the San Gabriel, San Fernando, Crescenta, Santa Clarita, and Antelope Valleys.
Supervisor Barger was born and raised in the 5th District and comes from deep roots in public service in Los Angeles county. She is married to a retired sheriff’s deputy and lives in the San Gabriel Valley.
Kathryn, as she is comfortable being called, began her career in public service as a college intern in the office of long-time Supervisor Mike Antonovich, rising to become his chief deputy in 2001, where she served until her election to the Board of Supervisors in November 2016. She has been dedicated to providing effective, responsive representation to the residents of Los Angeles County.
During the course of her County career as chief policy adviser on health, mental health, social services and children’s issues, Kathryn ensured efficient and effective services and programs to significantly improve the quality of life for foster children, seniors, veterans, those with disabilities, and those with mental illness.
She has also been committed to keeping neighborhoods and communities safe. Working with state and federal leaders and our County district attorney, sheriff, and other law enforcement agencies, she has worked to implement tough laws and public safety initiatives.
Kathryn is an advocate for the environment and efforts to preserve open space, enhance parks, trails, recreational programs and facilities, as well as libraries and after-school programs to serve local communities.
Supervisor Barger has a strong sense of fiscal responsibility. She is dedicated to providing vital County services while protecting financial resources, acting as a steward of taxpayer dollars.
