LOS ANGELES – Ron Galperin today launched his bid for L.A County Supervisor, a seat that will be vacant in 2022 when his two terms as Los Angeles Controller concludes.
“L.A. is at a turning point,” Galperin said. “Our region has always been the home of creativity, innovation and dreams. As we begin to emerge from more than a year of COVID-19, we face enormous challenges, but also have great opportunities that must be tackled with guts and vision. It takes leadership and a willingness to fight to deliver a more equitable Los Angeles.”
Galperin continued: “Next year, L.A. will be electing new leadership that will chart the course for years to come. We must do more to combat homelessness, poverty, mental illness and inequity while strengthening our economy and expanding opportunity. The future depends on innovative, accountable and energetic leadership. That’s what I want to bring to L.A. County.”
Elected as Controller of the County’s largest city in 2013 and again in 2017, Galperin serves as the elected watchdog for taxpayers, ensuring that public dollars are spent transparently, efficiently and effectively while also overseeing the City’s finances and reducing government fraud and waste. During his eight years as Controller, he has transformed the Controller’s role and improved public services by using data transparency, technology, audits and reports, dashboards, maps and more — to better meet people’s needs.
Galperin is known for being unafraid to challenge the status quo — addressing clear shortcomings in homeless housing and services, planning, public safety, infrastructure and more by holding public officials accountable and working to be an agent for innovation and change in local government.
