I am John H. Linn and I am committed to serving the people of Lompoc. I moved here in 1982 so my son could grow up in a small town as my wife and I did. For 33 years I have operated many successful small businesses in Lompoc. Many of you have been our customers and been a part of our success and our lives.

Jonatha, my wife of 40 years, and I have raised our son here, moved both sets of parents here and we are committed to our community.

From 1983 to 1987, I co-chaired the Airport Days Trade Fair and was elected president of the Chamber of Commerce in 1989. I have served on the tow service advisory committee to the California Highway Patrol in Sacramento for 16 years. In 1989, I became scoutmaster of Boy Scout Troop 103 in 1989 which I continue to lead. I am especially proud of guiding
32 scouts in earning the rank of Eagle Scout. In 2008, I have co-chaired the founding of The Lompoc Valley Parks, Recreation and Pool Foundation to create community recreation programs. The foundation continues to grow with 6 program committees and two more forming.

I have a bachelor’s degree in political science from Chapman University in Orange,  California and I understand the technical aspects of government. With my 42 years of business experience, I understand budgets and the costs of doing business, researching issues and options to make fact-based decisions.

I have enjoyed being your Mayor since December 7 2010 and we have accomplished many great things for the residents of Lompoc working together.
