Meet Lynn Deutsch, Candidate for District 2

Lynn Deutsch is pleased to announce her candidacy for the Dunwoody City Council At Large District 2 seat.   

Lynn was appointed to and currently serves on the Dunwoody Planning Commission, where she had the opportunity to listen to Dunwoody residents and to work towards building consensus.   Prior to that appointment, she had served on the board of the Dunwoody Homeowners Association, where she gained insight into the challenges and opportunities our community faces.  She served for many years on the board of her neighborhood Women’s Club and has been an active advocate for her neighborhood. 

Often associated with public education in DeKalb because of her long term involvement as a volunteer, Lynn is well known for holding officials accountable, demanding excellence and not accepting excuses. Based on her reputation for asking tough questions and seeking solutions, Governor Perdue appointed Lynn to the Master Teacher and Academic Coach Implementation committee as his parent representative. 

To thrive in the future, Lynn believes that Dunwoody must be an outstanding place to live for people in all ages and stages of their lives and simultaneously be a great place for businesses to locate.  These objectives can be met by with planning properly and improving infrastructure.

Lynn earned a master's degree in City Planning from the Georgia Institute of Technology and a graduate certificate in Gerontology from Georgia State University as well as bachelors degrees in Government and Journalism from the University of Texas at Austin. 

“I have lived in Dunwoody for over 20 years and this is where Barry and I have chosen to raise our three children.  Dunwoody is our home and I am committed to insuring that it is a great place to live, work and retire,” said Lynn.  To learn more about Lynn, visit or email her at
