Lindsey Dougherty – Candidate for Supervisor Chesterfield County, Bermuda District
Lindsey’s background is in nonprofit, local, and state fiscal management. For years, she specialized in local government financial analysis while working for Chesterfield County in the Budget and Management Department. She is intimately aware of the problems facing our district and is uniquely suited to face them head on, with new approaches that will positively impact the quality of life for everyone in Chesterfield County, Virginia.
Our current representation in the Bermuda District has left a lot to be desired; as our schools have been underfunded, traffic issues go unsolved and unabated, and development continuously outpaces our county’s investments in infrastructure.
Frankly, it’s time for a change. Lindsey wants to use her financial and professional background to improve the lives of all families in the county. She has decided to run as the next Supervisor in the Bermuda District and looks forward to connecting with you soon to bring much needed change and transparency to Chesterfield County government – in all of the areas that impact YOUR daily life.
