Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger to Deliver “State of the County” Address Today

Los Angeles County District 5 Supervisor Kathryn Barger, who represents Pasadena on the County Board of Supervisors, is set to deliver her annual “State of the County” address at a luncheon Wednesday hosted by the Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce. 

During her address, Supervisor Barger is expected to discuss a range of important local topics, focusing on her efforts to increase public safety, address homelessness, and improve the County’s mental health services infrastructure and jails. 

The speech will likely provide insights into her work and priorities as the supervisor of the Fifth District.

In addition to highlighting her views and initiatives, Supervisor Barger will also recognize the achievements of local Santa Clarita Valley students who won a fentanyl awareness video contest. These students will be honored for their contributions towards raising awareness about the dangers of fentanyl, a potent opioid. As part of this recognition, Supervisor Barger will present a $50,000 check to the William S. Hart Education Foundation in support of fentanyl education and outreach.

Following the conclusion of her address, Supervisor Barger will participate in a question-and-answer session, providing attendees with an opportunity to engage directly with her and gain further insights into the topics discussed.

The event is set to take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Hyatt Regency Valencia located at 24500 Town Center Drive in Valencia. It is sold out.
