Lynne believes we must resolve the County's economic problems in a way that does not cut sheriffs, firefighters and other personnel that protect our communities. We cannot resolve our problems by eliminating public benefits, closing parks and hospitals. The state must find a way to replace the local revenues that they cut by eliminating the car tax. They had an agreement with the Counties and Cities regarding this revenue stream. They need to keep their agreement.
As a small business owner in Burbank for over 20 years, Lynne Plambeck understands the need to promote jobs and support our local economic base. Lynne Plambeck will work hard to promote smart development that will bring jobs closer to where people live, rather than being forced drive two, three, even four hours a day to and from work.
Just elected for her third term to the Newhall County Water District, Lynne Plambeck has experience in public service and a record of both protecting residents' interests and the environment. Lynne Plambeck has fought to prevent existing residents' water supply from being diverted to the new 21,000 home development in Newhall Ranch, which could have caused water rates to skyrocket and reduced the security of supply for existing residents in the event of a drought. Lynne believes better water planning and accurate water supply reporting MUST occur in Los Angeles County before we reach crisis level.
Protecting our children's health is a top priority for Lynne Plambeck. As Supervisor, Lynne Plambeck will make sure the county maintains health services for children, and will stop gravel pits, landfills and mines from opening near homes, causing tremendous air pollution and increasing the risk of asthma for our kids.
As long time Board Member and Current President of Santa Clarita Organization for Planning the Environment (SCOPE) and the Chair of the Sierra Club Santa Clara River Campaign, Lynne Plambeck has taken a leading role in protecting the quality of life of residents in northern LA County. She supports watershed protection to enhance recreational values and protect water supply and water quality of our County rivers and streams.
Lynne Plambeck pulled together community support for saving the "Old Glory" oak tree in Pico Canyon, and stopping the two biggest "mini city" projects that will destroy hundreds of thousands of acres of open space and bring local freeways to a grinding halt: Newhall Ranch and Tejon Ranch.
Lynne Plambeck has also fought to keep the Angeles National Forest open to the public by organizing to end the "Adventure Pass" fees imposed by the U.S. Forest Service, which has unfairly forced residents in the foothills to pay for the privilege of visiting the mountains they chose to live near.
Lynne Plambeck will protect the quality of life of ALL residents,
from Claremont to Santa Clarita, Lancaster, and everywhere in between.
Lynne Plambeck will come to YOUR community, rather than making residents
drive 20, 50, even 100 miles just to meet their supervisor.

- Protecting county health care services
- Supporting fire fighters and public safety services
- Protecting the environment
- Opposing new landfills, gravel pits and mines near homes
- Preventing sprawl and overdevelopment
- Stopping Newhall Ranch!
- Providing better public transit
The incumbent, Supervisor Mike Antonovich, has promoted developers'
interests time and time again, while ignoring and even attacking residents'
opposition to projects that harm their quality of life. The devastating
impact of the recent wildfires shows what happens when planning takes a
back seat to patronage. He has also taken a leading role in pushing through
drastic cutbacks to county health care services and increasing the cost
of passes for transit users by nearly 25% this year!
WE DESERVE BETTER LEADERSHIP!!!
