Lynne Lekakis was appointed Deputy Majority Leader of the Legislature in April 2018. She is vice-chair of the Personnel Committee, and a member of the Health, Conservation & Improvement and Mass Transit committees, and serves as co-Chair of the Albany County Legislative Modernization Task Force.

She is a partner in the consulting firm Kane & Lekakis, applying her organizing, facilitation, and program management skills to nonprofits and businesses in the Capital Region since 2002. Kane & Lekakis has worked with Equinox, United Way, Women’s Bar Association, Neighborhood Resource Center, and many others.

Lynne currently serves as the facilities coordinator at Upper Hudson Planned Parenthood. This spring, she completed four terms as a board president of the Honest Weight Food Co-op, leading the organization through several governance changes and the move to its one-year-old facility. During her service, the co-op increased sales from $2 million to $24 million in a difficult economic period – proving that shared ownership and decision-making, coupled with a strong triple bottom line focus- people, planet, and profit- can work. While under contract with the co-op, she raised over $1.1M in loans for the construction project.
