Supervisor Kathryn Barger proudly serves the residents of Los Angeles County’s 5th Supervisorial District — the county’s largest — spanning 2,800 square miles, which includes 22 cities and 70 unincorporated communities in the San Gabriel, San Fernando, Crescenta, Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys.
Kathryn was born and raised in the 5th District and comes from a family with 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.
Dedicated to providing effective, responsive representation to the residents of Los Angeles County, Kathryn began her career in public service as a college intern in the office of Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich and rose to become his chief deputy in 2001, where she served until her election to the Board of Supervisors in November 2016.
During the course of her county career as chief policy advisor 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.
Committed to keeping our neighborhoods and communities safe, she has worked with state and federal leaders and our county district attorney, sheriff, and other law enforcement agencies to implement tough laws and vital public safety initiatives.
She 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.
With a strong sense of fiscal responsibility, Kathryn is dedicated to providing vital county services while protecting financial resources as a responsible steward of taxpayer dollars.
