Issues

Campaign themes

2014

In a biography submitted to Ballotpedia, Lindblad highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "Public policy needs to ‘listen the science’ to build a sustainable economy made of relocalized (meaning to make local again) manufacturing clean energy industries and creating conditions so that small businesses can thrive. I will not stop fighting until every person in our District who needs a job can get one."

Education

  • Excerpt: "To restore California’s former preeminence: Fully funded tuition free public education par excellence bar none from pre-k through 16 for all. Zero-tolerance for bloated administration. Forgive student debt - that has skyrocketed six-fold over the past 30 years. Restore the historic spending rate of five to one on education over prisons "

Quality of Life

  • Excerpt: "With healthier outcomes with more parks, lowered impact development, light rail, mitigated sediment management with mechanical conveyance to above reservoir, Los Angeles River and Sunland-Tujungsa watershed revitalization, net-zero energy building, transit-oriented development, mixed use, pedestrian-friendly communities."
