Barger Issues Statement on Passing of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein

Today, Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger released the following statement about the passing of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein:

“Dianne Feinstein was a powerhouse if I ever met one. Her depth of knowledge was incomparable, she understood the complexities of every issue. 

I had the honor of receiving her endorsement when I first ran for L.A. County Fifth District Supervisor in 2016.

Our paths initially crossed when our county’s Department of Health Services was on the brink of collapsing. She was instrumental in working with the Clinton Administration to obtain a waiver for Los Angeles County so that we could direct dollars from our public hospitals to outpatient care. That was a game changer – not only for our county, but for the healthcare industry in general.

She will be greatly missed. Senator Feinstein was always a class act.”
