"Among the candidates, Lynda Hopkins presents the best opportunity to move past the acrimonious political battles of yesteryear toward new and creative ways of addressing the prevailing needs of today. These needs include creating affordable housing, fixing roads, adapting to a changing climate and providing sound fiscal management for a county with a $1.5 billion budget and lingering — and potentially staggering — pension problems."
"…I am placing my confidence in Lynda Hopkins.
Why? Many reasons…
…I want to TRUST her to have MY best interests in her heart. The best interests of my family, friends, community and environment. I feel SAFE with the value system of Lynda Hopkins. She has been kind, open-minded, generous with her time, and totally NOT like a traditional politician.
Lynda’s campaign is inclusive - not divisive. Her Town Halls informative as well as totally open to hearing what WE have to say. Her Coffee Chats show how comfortable she is with being vulnerable with meeting us on our turf. …
… She had a very professional presentation on seeking common ground where both sides could live together in peace. She went item by item, all laid out in rational thinking with no emotion...just the facts. She presented the path to peace, which they eventually achieved.
It's time...to put our home in the capable hands of mature, young person who has cooperation and consensus as her motivation. Who works towards her goals with energy and a deep sense of purpose. AND...she is KIND.
I TRUST MY HOME to Lynda Hopkins whose values reflect my own."

I am running for West County Supervisor because I believe we need a new voice in local government. We need new approaches to solving old problems; we need to work together on community-based solutions; we need to increase governmental transparency and engagement.
My goal is to listen to as many residents as possible about issues important to you and our Fifth District community.
I'm passionate about representing all of the people in the District, and believe strongly that everyone deserves to be heard.
