Linda Weber is a mother, community leader, and businesswoman who has shattered glass ceilings in banking and technology. The eldest of six children, Linda’s parents instilled in her a commitment to service and standing up for herself and others. From circulating a petition at age 9 that required her family’s church to allow girls to be altar servers to fighting for equal pay while working at a technology company, Linda has maintained a lifelong commitment to leadership and advocacy.
Like many Americans, Linda is disturbed by the direction of the country, which is why she is running to represent and serve the people of the 7th Congressional District. She is running because she believes that protecting our environment, access to affordable health care, and a woman’s right to make her own health choices are worth fighting for.
“Protecting the water that we drink and the air that we breathe should not be negotiable.”
Linda believes that climate change is real and driven by human activity, and that it is our responsibility to address it. To this end, she fully supports taking additional action to reduce our emissions.
“I’ve been fighting this fight, and I will continue to fight this fight.”
As an executive, Linda fought for promotions and pay equity for the women and people of color who worked for her. She didn’t allow prior low salaries to dictate what the new employee’s salary should be.
“Investing in public education is an investment in all of us.”
Linda understands the financial hardships families face when children pursue higher education. Earning a college degree is, for many, a path to a better life; unfortunately, the costs of college are sky-high.
