Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell

County of Los Angeles Board of Supervisors

A third-generation native Angeleno, Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell is the proud daughter of career public servants and the protégé of community leaders who instilled in her a passion for service. She continued her family legacy of “firsts” when she was named the first African American to chair the powerful Senate Budget and Fiscal Review Committee in December 2016. Less than two months later, a profile in The Los Angeles Times described Mitchell as the “Legislature’s moral compass.” She proved to be just that in 2017 and 2018 when she oversaw the adoption of consecutive state budgets of nearly $200 billion each and won wide praise for directing funds to elementary and college students, the health-care systems and long-neglected programs to assist infants, the elderly, youth and working families. Previously as state Senator, She served on several committees, including being named in January as vice chair of the Joint Committee on Rules Subcommittee on Sexual Harassment Prevention and Response.
