A principal in the Dewey Square Group’s Boston office, Lynda has earned a reputation as a highly-effective campaign organizer and manager with a winning record in the political, public and private sectors. With more than 25 years of experience in strategic planning and campaign management, she has developed and managed grassroots organizations for dozens of candidates and managed ballot initiatives in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Iowa, Oregon, Florida, and nationally.
Most recently Lynda served as the general consultant and campaign manager for the 2016 ballot question to oppose charter school expansion in Massachusetts, running a campaign that won a total of 333 of 351 cities and towns by a 24 point margin despite being outspent by $10 million. In 2012, Lynda served as a senior advisor for Senator Elizabeth Warren’s grassroots organization, which achieved a record win at the party convention, shattered existing voter contact efforts and delivered an historic turnout operation setting the bar for the application of new Get Out the Vote (GOTV) technology. Additionally, Lynda has managed municipal campaigns in the cities of Quincy, Springfield, Revere and Boston and several statewide ballot questions.
In 2008, Lynda served as director of Hillary Clinton’s GOTV effort in New Hampshire. She later returned to New Hampshire in the general election to direct the field organization effort for President Barack Obama and Senator Jeanne Shaheen, helping to secure solid victories for the Democratic ticket.
In 2004, Lynda managed the Massachusetts office for Senator John Kerry’s Presidential campaign and also directed Kerry’s successful get-out-the vote effort for New Hampshire. From 1998 to 2002, she served as Deputy Treasurer and Chief of Staff for the Massachusetts State Treasurer’s office.
Lynda is a graduate of Wheaton College and received her MBA from Simmons College School of Management.
