Common Sense Leadership    ★    Grow Blaine Economically Stronger

Hi, I’m Barbara Sturdivant, a resident of Blaine for over 15 years. I am running for Blaine City Council, Ward 3, Position 6 providing leadership guided by the people’s voice for common sense to support a safe and economically prosperous community.


As a grandmother of 14, Blaine could use more family-focused activities. The July 4 celebration here in Blaine is a great example. This event showcases the best of Blaine and its values, while focusing on families with a unique day of fun. As a member of Blaine City Council, I hope to provide leadership guided by common sense, that will support a safe and prosperous community.

Barb's Family


Dear friends and neighbors,

Our country is so divided currently, and I am struggling with what I can do to not let that happen. This has moved me to do something positive for the community I love and call home. I am passionate to bring an independent, common-sense perspective and voice to city council with leadership to grow Blaine economically stronger.

Being the grandmother to 14 amazing grandchildren I owe it to them to affect the direction our country and local governments are going in. My goal and passion are to leave them and the families in the Blaine community a legacy to enjoy the same opportunities I have had. It’s so important for our children to live in a safe and friendly environment that ensures equal opportunities to all now and in the future.

My belief is that the most effective, responsible and responsive government is the government closest to the people. Therefore, I have chosen to run for office at the City Council level, closest to the community I love to live in, making an effective change for a positive and prosperous future in the Blaine community.

Together, with your support, lets grow Blaine economically stronger maintaining the heritage and small-town charm of our beautiful community we all call home, the City of Blaine!
