Supervisor Kathryn Barger is proud to announce she has received the endorsement of Sierra Club for her 2024 re-election campaign. This endorsement is a testament to Supervisor Barger's track-record and unwavering commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable policies that benefit the communities she represents.


"The Sierra Club is honored to endorse Supervisor Kathryn Barger for re-election as Supervisor of the Fifth District of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors. Supervisor Kathryn Barger has demonstrated her commitment to environmental stewardship in the Fifth District. She has led sustainability initiatives that preserve our ecological, biological, and natural resources with a strong focus on environmental justice” said Sierra Club. “Supervisor Barger’s policy work and track record include expanding open space, investing in parks and nature centers, and protecting our forests.  Supervisor Barger has championed investments in clean energy, public transportation, and water quality. Importantly, she supported banning new gas and oil wells and phasing out existing wells in county unincorporated areas. We value her ongoing commitment to the environment and strongly endorse Kathryn Barger for a third and final term as Fifth District Supervisor."


Sierra Club, a national organization dedicated to advocating for environmental policies and endorsing candidates who prioritize environmental issues, values Supervisor Barger's exemplary record in promoting conservation, expanding open-spaces, advancing environmentally conscious policies, and fostering responsible development.

I am honored to receive Sierra Club’s endorsement.”


The endorsement from Sierra Club highlights Supervisor Kathryn Barger's proactive stance on environmental issues and her dedication to promoting a greener and healthier community. This commitment also earned her the local support of Sandra Cattell, Sierra Club Santa Clarita Group Chair.
