“Katy Young Yaroslavsky has the vision and experience we need to make Los Angeles healthier, safer, greener, and more equitable – and the courage to stand up to City Hall to get things done for the people.

I know Katy will bring strong representation for the 5th District constituents whom I represent.”


— Karen Bass

   Congresswoman, CA-37

“Katy Young Yaroslavsky is one of the best of our next generation of progressive leaders, and I’m excited to support her run for LA City Council. She’s smart, innovative, and fearless. She rolls up her sleeves and gets big stuff done.

As my senior policy advisor on the environment and the arts, Katy has developed and delivered huge policy wins that are already paying dividends for LA residents — cleaner water and air, new local green jobs, and healthier communities for all.

Council District 5 would be really lucky to have her there.”

Sheila Kuehl

   Los Angeles County Supervisor

“I know Katy, not only as a fighter against climate change and for our community’s quality of life but as the mother of three of my grandchildren. She left public interest law six years ago to continue her passion for public service.

She is running for the right reasons: to execute policies that protect and improve the quality of life in our city and on our planet. With strong roots in our district, Katy is smart, ethical, and principled.

Katy will stand up to the monied interests who have had far too much influence over the city’s affairs for too long — and will be an overdue breath of fresh air in City Hall. Please join me in supporting Katy for City Council.”
