Meet Linda Deos
Candidate for Yolo County Supervisor
I am a Davis resident and attorney specializing in consumer protection law; bankruptcy, student loans, and debt collection defense.
As a Consumer Protection Attorney, I have successfully sued big banks for mortgage fraud and defended employees who have endured sexual harassment and discrimination. Through my work I know all too well that too many people in our community are just one missed paycheck away from disaster.
I volunteer for the Coalition of Concerned Legal Professionals’ Know Your Law Clinics, and am a court appointed volunteer mediator for ADA disability access cases for the Eastern District of California.
As a former member of the Yolo County Health Council, I learned first-hand the physical and mental health challenges of people in our communities and believe it is critical that we expand and improve access to healthcare, including long-term and mental health care, for all who need it.
I am proud to serve on the Davis Utilities Commission, the Cannabis Business Tax Citizens’ Advisory Committee, and the Board of Directors for the Yolo Basin Foundation. I previously served on the Yolo County Health Council.
In 1985, I was a delegate to the United Nations Conference for Women in Nairobi, Kenya, and participated in a number of panels discussing lesbian rights in developing countries.
Being a member of the LGBT community means I know what it’s like to have to hide a portion of myself to be recognized or be safe in a particular environment, and to fight for a seat at the table . I will always fight to ensure all voices are heard and valued.
I live in Davis with my wife, Eva, our dog, Dobby, and cat, Marco Polo.
