Lynn served on the Oak Point City Council from 2010 to 2016 and served as Mayor Pro Tem from 2013 to 2016.
After stepping down for almost a year, Lynn decided to run for Oak Point City Council again because he missed serving the citizens by being able to vote on issues that affect the future of Oak Point's remaining open spaces, quality of life and safety of its citizens.
