“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

Adam Schiff


“Katy Young Yaroslavsky is a leader in the fight against climate change and a champion for housing the unhoused. She has the character, integrity, and vision that the City Council desperately needs.

Katy will be my partner in getting the hard work done, and I’m proud to endorse her to serve our communities as Councilwoman.”


— Adam Schiff


“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.”


— Zev Yaroslavsky

   Los Angeles County Supervisor (ret.)

“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 am proud to endorse Katy Young Yaroslavsky for Los Angeles City Council.  I’ve worked with Katy for the last seven years on big initiatives, like Measure W where we’re making real progress in the fight for clean water and creating good-paying local green jobs.  Katy builds coalitions and solves problems, and I know she will be an effective advocate for her constituents and all Angelenos on crucial issues like homelessness, making our city and region more sustainable, and ensuring women and girls have the local health resources and protections they need to thrive.


— Hilda Solis

  Los Angeles County Supervisor


“Katy Young Yaroslavsky has the proven experience – and the courage – to fight for the people and neighborhoods of the 5th District.

I’m proud to endorse her for City Council, and I know Katy will bring strong representation for the constituents whom I represent.”


— Ben Allen

  State Senator


“As we make significant strides towards equality and justice in California, we need strong leaders on the L.A. City Council who will work for change. That’s why I support Katy Young Yaroslavsky for the 5th District

Her dedication and expertise will help us accomplish the meaningful change we need for our city.

Katy is exceptionally qualified with experience in the public, private, and non-profit sectors – and she would be only the 4th woman on the City Council out of 15 members.”

— Sydney Kamlager

   State Senator


“I’m proud to endorse Katy to represent City Council District 5, because Katy is just the type of bold, new leader – and ally – we need shaping solutions for the people of Los Angeles.

The status quo doesn’t shift willingly. And our movement to put people first requires relentless advocates like Katy organizing, building, and pushing the bounds of progress. Her compassion for people combined with her strength in standing up to powerful special interests sets her apart from other candidates.

She prioritizes housing and clean air and water as fundamental human rights and will fight for economic mobility for everyone. I look forward to working with her to achieve our shared vision of helping our communities thrive.”


— Isaac Bryan

  Assembly Member


“We need relentless advocates fighting for our communities – effective, progressive leaders who put people first and drive the change we seek. That’s why we need to elect Katy Young Yaroslavsky for Los Angeles City Council District 5.

Katy is a highly qualified policymaker, with the vision to create practical solutions to our most urgent concerns, including homelessness, housing affordability, and the climate crisis.”



— Laura Friedman

   Assembly Member


“I am proud to endorse Katy Young Yaroslavsky for Los Angeles City Council. When we worked together to create LA’s Safe Clean Water Program, I saw firsthand how Katy brings people together to tackle difficult issues and create real solutions for our local communities.

Katy’s honest, smart, and collaborative, and she will be an experienced and powerful voice in the fight against climate change. The L.A. City Council needs her steady leadership right now.”
