John Blom for Vancouver City Council, Position 1
I’m running for Vancouver City Council because THIS IS HOME. As a long time resident, community volunteer, and business owner, I take a great deal of pride in Vancouver and the opportunities our city offers. I want to ensure current and future generations have these same great opportunities.
As a city we need to realize their dreams here by creating a stable economy, robust infrastructure, safe and thriving community, with strong public safety, abundant parks and open spaces, and housing opportunities.
We have much work to do managing the uncertainties of COVID. I’ve watched so many of our local businesses close down last year. I know exactly how difficult it can be to navigate various restrictions, understand the ever-changing government programs, and take care of employees. It is certainly not “business as usual” right now.
As a County Councilor, I represented a large number of Vancouver citizens. I know the people of Vancouver and have been working hard for the last four years on making sure our voice is heard at the county and state levels. I look forward to doing that on the City Council.
