My name is Jason Smith, and I am incredibly excited to announce that I am once again running for the Blaine city council seat in ward 1. Two years ago I attempted to run for this seat, and I am very proud of the campaign that was built. I met many Blaine residents who are passionate about Blaine, and are prepared to work together to create positive change in our neighborhoods. We did not win the council seat in 2018, but I still believe in the messages we created. This is why I have decided to run again in 2020.
Currently, local politics and campaign work is seeing massive shifts as we are all being asked to be smart, and to be safe at home. In-person interactions are limited, but I still want to hear from everyone that wants to be heard. Please reach out to me in any way that you can, and tell me about yourself, your experiences in Blaine, and changes you want to see.
At this time my main priorities going onto the council are to be a transparent voice for all residents, to reinvest in residents and neighborhoods, and to reduce Blaine’s financial dependence on its residents. My experience as an engineer is about solving technical and business problems, I want to use these skills to give back to the community. I am not a career politician, and I have no interest in using this seat as a means to start a political career. I simply want to serve the community that I call home. I hope together we can Stand Tall as we build a brighter future for Blaine.
