Some of her priorities for Sonoma County and the Fifth District focus on:

  • Engaging with the community to create more affordable/workforce housing and better address homelessness and mental health services. (Check out Lynda's Affordable Housing Policies and Plans.)
  • Investing in our roads and community infrastructure.
  • Protecting our environment, the coastline and our agricultural/open space areas.
  • Conserving our water resources and improving the health of the Russian River and other local waterways.
  • Strengthening our schools and the quality of our education system.
  • Creating jobs and sustaining our locally-owned small businesses.
  • Increasing transparency and providing a new approach to solving old and ongoing problems.
