From Portland Afoot
Lynn Lehrbach was a one-term member of the TriMet board of directors, serving from 2008 to 2012. A professional reporesentative of the Joint Council of Teamsters 37, he often served as a voice for organized labor on the board.
Lehrbach succeeded former Multnomah County sheriff Bernie Giusto in the position representing east Multnomah County. Lehrbach was succeeded in 2012 by Travis Stovall after Gov. John Kitzhaber decided not to renominate him for the position.
 Political beliefs
 Skeptic of rail projects
Lehrbach regularly expresses worry that TriMet's construction projects come at the expense of transit service.
In 2010, he expressed skepticism that TriMet had lined up enough money to construct the Portland-Milwaukie light rail project, which he said he supports. In June 2010, he cast the sole vote for a moratorium on buying land for the project.
"We've become rail builders," Lehrbach said at an October 2010 board briefing. "I'm worried that we're losing track of service. ... That's our main mission."
 Supporter of free transit for seniors
Lehrbach said in June 2011 that he supports free transit access for TriMet honored citizens, including seniors and people with disabilities.
Lehrbach said he opposed all fare hikes on "people in the twilight of their life" and "people in the shadows of their life, which are people with disabilities."
