Tuesday, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger announced she has raised $715,000 for her 2024 re-election campaign for Fifth District County Supervisor — outpacing all other candidates.

The announcement comes at the mid-year reporting deadline.

“I truly appreciate the support I have received across the board from our Fifth District community,” said Supervisor Barger. “Many of my supporters do not regularly give to political campaigns, which makes reaching this amount at this time all the more special. I am very grateful that so many of our neighbors have invested in our campaign.”

Supervisor Barger has raised $650,000 of her funds from within Los Angeles County. A majority of her support was from individual donors, not special interests or political action committees. She also currently has the most cash on hand of any candidate, with $650,000.

“I have committed my three-decade-long county career to working with all stakeholders including business, labor, Republicans and Democrats alike. The support I have received reflects that commitment,” said Supervisor Barger. “People are tired of partisan politics and just want common sense solutions. I have consistently put people and solutions over party — and I’m proud of that.”

Supervisor Barger has been endorsed by mayors and bi-partisan elected leaders from across the Fifth District as well as business and labor leaders and dozens of other community groups. A full list of endorsements can be viewed here.

The next finance reporting deadline is December 31, 2023.
