An architect by education and profession, Jack Lindblad is running to win California's 18th Senate District seat in 2014, having vied for the 39th Assembly District seat in 2012, following back-to-back contests and one-on-one rematch with the incumbent, earning 21.6% of the vote in 2010 (tripling the 2008 showing), tops for alternative parties.
Lindblad is poised to place in the top two positions in the June Top-Two election.
Lindblad was the only Green candidate on the ballot for California Legislative office in 2008 and won among the highest showings for third parties, and lives in the San Fernando Valley.
He anchors his award-winning sustainable urban design and architecture practice with a healthcare facility emphasis in the San Fernando Valley.
His work is recognized for excellence and innovation. Lindblad campaigns on a Green-values platform for more parks, for a carbon-neutral, relocalized, 100% renewable energy, steady state economy basing development on bio-regional determinism, not developers.
Lindblad will advance the green 10 Key Values' moral imperatives in California's Legislature to balance the budget, effect prison reform, manage multiple collapses, mitigate and adapt to ecological collapse's worst catastrophes.
A member of Economic Alliance of the San Fernando Valley Livable Communities Council and various Neighborhood Councils, he has supported community grass-root efforts, helped form neighborhood councils, co-author a sustainable community plan to revitalize the Panorama City commercial area, advocating District-wide multimodal rapid transit, stopping gentrification, living wage, revitalizing the Tujunga-Pacoima Watershed, assisting in the 'No on B' win to provide unfettered solar power to stakeholders and assisting in the successful effort keeping the foothill and upper watershed communities in one city council district.
