About Katy Tang

Katy Tang previously served as Supervisor Carmen Chu’s Legislative Aide for over five years, drafting legislation to create Neighborhood Commercial Districts for District 4 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, Tang 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 4 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 and protect businesses. 

Supervisor Tang is lifelong District 4 resident.
