Friends and Neighbors, 

I’m honored to serve as your Councilwoman for Los Angeles’ Fifth City Council District. As someone who has lived in this community nearly my entire life, I understand the unique challenges we face and the opportunities that lie ahead. 

L.A.’s problems are urgent – homelessness, poverty, climate change, racial injustice, and a struggling economy all require immediate action. But we can only make progress by working together, building coalitions, and engaging with our community in an authentic and inclusive way. I am committed to doing this hard work and making sure that everyone's voice is heard. 

Throughout all of our work, transparency is at the center. I believe that open and honest communication is essential for building trust and achieving real results. That's why I will always be transparent about my decisions and actions as your Councilwoman, and I welcome your feedback and input. 

Thank you for entrusting me with the responsibility of representing our district. Together, we can create a more sustainable, equitable, and livable Los Angeles. 

Katy (signature)

Katy Yaroslavsky,    
Councilmember District 5
