was appointed by San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee to serve on the Board of Supervisors as the District 4 representative in February 2013, and then elected in November 2013.
As District 4 Supervisor, Katy has worked on a number of issues to improve the quality of life for residents. She spearheaded the first ever district-wide strategic planning effort, called the Sunset District Blueprint, to identify short-term and long-term initiatives to improve the neighborhood; introduced legislation unanimously adopted by the Board of Supervisors to provide our city with additional enforcement tools over massage establishments serving as potential fronts for human trafficking; launched the city’s first Front Yard Ambassador Program to assist residents with front yard landscaping installations and to divert 30,000 gallons of rainwater from the city’s sewer system in the first phase of the program; and initiated efforts with the Planning Department to identify land use opportunity sites with the Sunset District to address the city’s housing challenges.
Katy is a member of the San Francisco Collaborative Against Human Trafficking, where she works with city agencies and partners to end human trafficking through education, outreach, advocacy, and supporting human trafficking survivors. She also works closely with the Ocean Beach Master Plan steering committee, where she has been engaging with city agencies and partners to implement recommendations for a more sustainable future on San Francisco’s Pacific Coast.
Katy previously served as Supervisor Carmen Chu’s Legislative Aide for over five years, drafting legislation to create neighborhood commercial districts for District Four business corridors, increasing protections for victims of domestic violence, streamlining complex City contracting processes, facilitating prompt payment to City contractors, and instituting increased penalties for crimes committed in and around public transit.
As Legislative Aide, Katy served as an adviser on policy issues before the Board of Supervisors, analyzed legislation, served as lead staff in developing the City’s first two-year budget that balanced a $6.8 billion annual City budget and closed budget shortfalls of $380 million, and worked with District Four neighbors and businesses to implement community improvement projects, including the completion of a pilot Storefront Improvement Project on Noriega and Taraval streets that improved 15 neighborhood businesses and created a model for small businesses citywide. Katy also spearheaded efforts to assist small businesses in complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act requirements, helping to create access for all San Franciscans while also protecting businesses.
Katy also served in Mayor Gavin Newsom’s administration in the Office of Public Policy & Finance where she led neighborhood involvement efforts in the development of the City’s first Community Justice Center, in addition to her work assisting with development of the City’s budget.
