Barger launches re-election campaign


Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger announced the launch of her re-election campaign for 5th District supervisor – a position she has held since her initial election in 2016. She was re-elected for a second term in the March 2020 primary.

“I am launching this re-election campaign with a lot of enthusiasm and focus,” Barger said in a prepared statement. “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.”

The statement from Barger’s campaign listed endorsemen­ts from 10 labor organizati­ons and 29 current and past elected officials.

Among those was Santa Clarita Councilman Bill Miranda.

“Supervisor Kathryn Barger has been a staunch supporter of the Fifth District and particular­ly of Santa Clarita,” Miranda said in the statement released by the Barger campaign. “Her energy, passion and skill at traversing the intricacie­s of her office are outstandin­g. She is a hands-on leader who gets involved at the people’s level. She has put together a staff of hard and smart workers with compassion to handle every community member’s needs. I wholeheart­edly endorse Kathryn Barger for re-election to the L.A. County supervisor 5th District position.”

“I have developed a reputation as a no-nonsense, hard-working leader,” Barger added. “I’ve demonstrat­ed an unwavering commitment to collaborat­ion and have served as a constant advocate for 5th 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.”

Voters in the 5th District – which encompasse­s the northern portion of Los Angeles County, including the Santa Clarita Valley – will have an opportunit­y to cast their ballots in the March 2024 primary election.
