Guest 3. Lynda Hopkins is one of two final candidates, both women, on the ballot for the 5th District Supervisor of Sonoma County. This will be the first time that the County Supervisors will have a majority of women on the Board. Lynda is the owner with her husband of Foggy River Farm in the Russian River Valley supplying locally-grown organic produce. Lynda has her Masters Degree in Stanford’s Earth Systems Program in coastal ecosystems and land use policy. She is a policy advocate on behalf of small family farms. Lynda is the mother of two children. She discusses what sets her apart from the other candidate, who was interviewed last week on Women’ Spaces with the same questions.
Both candidates were asked a surpise question on the regulation of the medical cannabis industry in the county.
