Sarah Kate Levy Launches Her Campaign for

Los Angeles City Council District 4

Hollywood Based Writer, Community Advocate, and Mother
Raises More than $83,000 Since September


Los Angeles, CA — Sarah Kate Levy is officially launching her campaign for Los Angeles City Council District 4, her campaign announced today. A writer, mother, and former member of the Hollywoodland Homeowners Association, Levy believes that many of the promises made to her community have been left unfulfilled. She’s running to work on the issues that affect the daily lives of those in the 4th District.

“City hall has a different set of priorities than solving the problems affecting our neighborhoods,” said Levy. “I will be an independent voice who will focus on the issues that matter to our residents and bring much-needed accountability and transparency to our city government.”

Levy moved to Los Angeles when she was 22 years old to become a writer, when it was possible to rent an apartment for $300 a month, and still support yourself as a low-paid assistant at a television network. Today, that opportunity is no longer possible for others.

“When I came to Los Angeles, it was a city where any dream was possible, at any income level. Now, we have too many families who live one crisis away from rock bottom. We can’t afford to wait any longer for affordable housing. We need investment in our streets, and we need to promote clean transit by creating protected bike lanes, bus lanes, and pedestrian-friendly sidewalks. We need to ensure everyone feels safe in their neighborhood, protected from crime, discrimination, and violence.”

Levy opened her committee in September and has since raised $83,552.00 from 291 donors, 94 of whom reside in Council District 4. She’s assembled an experienced campaign team, including Doug Herman and Danielle Cendejas of The Strategy Group, and David Binder Research.

Levy is a published author and the voice behind the parenting blog ChecklistMommy. She co-wrote the movie No Way Jose and is a member of the Writers Guild of America, West. Dedicated to advancing women’s rights, Levy serves as the President of the National Women’s Political Caucus, LA Metro, and volunteers with the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Project. She also serves on the board of The Library Foundation of Los Angeles.

Levy is a homeowner in Hollywood where she lives with her husband and their four children.
