Bobbie Lindsay, Council Member
Bobbie Lindsay joined the Town Council in February 2016. Prior to the Council, Bobbie served on the Shore Protection Board from 2008-2012 and on the Planning and Zoning Commission from 2013-2014.
Ms. Lindsay holds a bachelor’s degree from Cornell University. She has a long history in Palm Beach, having moved here with her family in 1961. She attended Palm Beach Public School, Rosarian Academy and Twin Lakes High School.
She had an active executive career in Seattle, Washington in the technology sector and later was a principal in one of Seattle’s downtown real estate development/investment firms, Pine Street Group.
While serving as a director and executive committee member of the Palm Beach Civic Association, she organized and was President of the Save Our Inlet Coalition, a 501c(3) dedicated to stopping the federally approved Port of Palm Beach expansion that would irreparably harm the Palm Beach Inlet and lagoon’s booming eco-tourism and recreational economy and marine environment. She resigned her Civic Association Director position, as well as her position as president of the Save Our Inlet Coalition upon taking office on the Town Council.
Bobbie remains on the boards of Florida Wildlife Federation, Sea-2-Shore Alliance (preservation of manatees, sea turtles and Right Whales) and still serves as an officer of the Save Our Inlet Coalition. She is also active in the Garden Club of Palm Beach.
She and her husband of 25 years, Douglas Buck, raised their son, John, in Palm Beach. “I have the good fortune to have a long-term view of Palm Beach and am dedicated to serving our residents, while still preserving what we all love about our town.”
