Her platform states she cares deeply about the quality of life in Vero Beach. She is interested in strategic decision making on the issues that make Vero Beach an economically viable small town with abundant natural resources. Linda’s statement about City Council is “Advocating for Vero Beach is a part of who I am, because I feel so fortunate to live in this truly unique and special place. I believe we are at a crucial point to protect the City of Vero Beach and our wonderful lifestyle. We need to balance remaining a city that supports itself while upholding the Charter and saving our city parks and public buildings. The Indian River Lagoon deserves our immediate attention and I would like the City of Vero Beach to be a leader in that effort. Height restrictions must remain in place to protect property values and Vero Beach’s identity as a desirable place to live. Long Range planning should be on the City of Vero Beach’s active To Do list.”
