Commissioner Lynn Todman
Dr. Lynn Todman has lived in this community with her family since 1995, longer than any other community she has lived in, including the city she grew up in, Chicago, Illinois.
Dr. Todman earned her undergraduate degree from Wellesley College and both her Master’s in City Planning and Doctorate in Urban and Regional Planning from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Today, Dr. Todman has turned her professional focus to community health and currently holds the title of Executive Director for Population Health at Lakeland Health.
In addition to her professional experience, Commissioner Todman has also been very active in the community. Among Lynn’s many volunteer and board affiliations, she is chair of the Benton Harbor Promise Zone Foundation and past co-chair of the Benton Harbor Promise Zone Authority, an appointment made by the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Lynn also currently sits on the board at Edgewater Bank and is a past board member of Cornerstone Alliance.
“While St. Joseph is a great city, it could be even greater if it was more inclusive and open to diverse perspectives and life experiences. I believe the city’s future will depend on its ability to embrace new people, new ways of thinking, and innovative approaches to solving problems. I can help facilitate St. Joseph’s evolution toward more openness and greater inclusiveness.”
Her interest in becoming a city commissioner was spurred by her belief that St. Joseph must continue to build bridges and connections with nearby cities. Additionally, she is concerned about the downhill trend of the city’s population and wants to play a role in reversing that trend. Most importantly, Lynn has a strong commitment to community health and wellbeing and wants to drive actions that support and enhance the future health and wellbeing of our community.
