Fischer for City Council

As November 6 approaches, many people will be fixated on the mid-term elections. But the rubber meets the road at the local level, too. That’s why I encourage Petaluma residents to get to know D’Lynda Fischer, who is running for City Council.

Like most communities, Petaluma faces many challenges—lack of affordable housing, traffic congestion, inadequate community services, to name a few—and D’Lynda is eager to help make a difference.

With a background as a planner and a public servant, she offers a fresh, yet experienced, voice. During her long career as an urban planner in Southern California, she represented her community on the Planning Commission, as well as clients before many city boards and councils. She currently is a board member of the United States Green Building Council, Redwood chapter, which provides her a platform to influence how our community grows.

Having lived in Petaluma for four years, D’Lynda is relatively new to town. But when she arrived, she didn’t waste any time getting involved in our community. In the past few years, I’ve worked as a volunteer with D’Lynda in three different organizations—Daily Acts, the Bionutrient Food Association, and 350.org. From first-hand experience, I can tell you this about her: She is passionate about our community, she has an insatiable desire to learn, she will work hard for you, and she will follow through on the commitments she makes. 

But don’t take my word for it. You can find D’Lynda every Tuesday at the Petaluma East-Side Farmer’s Market at 320 N. McDowell Blvd, from 10 am to 1:30 pm. Share your concerns, hear her perspectives, have a conversation. And then give serious thought about who you want to represent you. I hope you’ll give D’Lynda your support.
