From Portland Afoot
Lynn Lehrbach is, as of October 2010, a member of the TriMet board of directors. A Teamster, he often serves as a voice for organized labor on the board.
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."
