Plan for A Better Future


Dear Lexingtonians, we did it! 

If this remarkable result on March 6th's election has not broken our town's record in the number of votes for a write-in candidate, it must have broken the speed of achieving it. We did this in less than 72 hours. 

A heartfelt THANK YOU to :

What's next?

Even though I didn't get elected, together, we have raised awareness and spurred meaningful discussions on the proposed significant zoning changes. I will continue to serve as a Town Meeting member (Precinct 8) and listen to you.

Dear Lexington friends and neighbors,

The election results on March 6th will have a profound impact on our town’s future. Lexington is facing unprecedented challenges to build better and smarter. Like many residents, I believe that it is time for change in the Planning Board. I hope you will consider writing me in on Monday's election ballot. 

Since 2016 I have participated in numerous Planning Board meetings and have been involved in the process of completing the Town’s Comprehensive Plan. I also analyzed the data driven by some of our key zoning bylaws, and fully understand the Board’s critical role in shaping our town. 

If elected, I will strive for transparency, data-driven and fact-based communication, and greater collaboration with the community and town staff. I believe that only by working together can we reach the Comprehensive Plan goals to become greener, healthier, and more affordable. 

And remember, when you write in and vote for me, you will have voted for the army of talents I have been working closely with in the past years of volunteering, including many of you. Planning for our town's future takes a village.

Lastly, please also consider joining me in voting for Robert Creech for his experience on the Planning Board, his balanced, thoughtful approach and long-term vision for Lexington.

Your voice is important. We all know the challenges for a write-in candidate, which is why I am asking for your help and support to share with friends, neighbors, and social media groups. Monday's election will be when every vote counts. 

With respect and gratitude,

Lin Jensen
