Common Sense Leadership    ★    Grow Blaine Economically Stronger

Hi, I am Barbara Sturdivant, a resident of Blaine for over 15 years. I am running for Blaine City Council. I intend to provide leadership guided by the people’s voice, listen to common sense, establish a safe community, and promote economic prosperity.


As a grandmother of 14 beautiful children, I understand the needs of a family. Blaine is a charming city accommodating many families, and as a leader of our community, I will preserve, advocate, and embrace family values. As a member of Blaine City Council, I will be committed to providing leadership guided by the people’s voice, listening to common sense, establishing a safe community, and promoting economic prosperity.

Barb's Family


My dear friends and neighbors, in our current political environment, I am motivated to serve the community I love and call home. As a leader within the Blaine City Council, I intend to contribute a new and promising perspective.

Being the grandmother of 14 amazing grandchildren, I understand the great responsibility of our leaders to preserve and improve our community for the benefit of younger generations. I am devoted to providing our youth with opportunity and success.

The most effective, responsible, and responsive government is the government closest to the people. As a leader within the Blaine City Council, I intend to thoughtfully listen to and respect the requests of Blaine community members.

With your support, we are capable of collaborating to strengthen the Blaine economy, maintain thehistoric nature of our city, and preserve the charm of our special community; I am committed to serving our beautiful home, the City of Blaine!
