Why Linda Weber?

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.
