James Blair is 28 years old. Born in La Mirada, CA. He moved to Washington in 1999 and has called Western Washington home ever since. In 2007 his son, Brendon, was born. In August 2015, James married his childhood friend, Melissa. The two have built a life together here in Washington, their first home was in Tacoma. They moved to Yelm in April 2016 and fell in love with the city. They have found their permanent home, and look forward to many more years of being a part of this community. James believes in family first. Our community in Yelm is like a family, and he will always put the best interests of that family first.
James has a background in manufacturing and transportation. Working in manufacturing taught him to appreciate the hard work that goes into building a finished product. While working in the transportation business, there is a very important lesson James learned. To respect the trust given to you to transport other's property to its destination damage-free. Working in these fields has taught him the values necessary to make a great Councilman. To have respect for the legislative process in order to uphold the best interests of the city, and to be responsible with tax revenues. He will prioritize necessary Government functions and stand up against wasteful spending. Government's primary role is to protect Life, Liberty, and Property. He will work to focus Government on those responsibilities.
What's Important To James
Public Safety is one of the essential roles of Government. Currently, our police department is understaffed and underfunded. The fact that there is ever a time when only one police officer is on duty is a danger to both the public and the officer. This is unacceptable. James will be a strong advocate for the Police Department and work for proper funding and staffing.
Join the Cause
James' interest in politics has come from witnessing the constant abuses of power in Government today. For far too long, Government has run rapant and unchecked. Individual's rights have slowly been eroded over the years. He has decided to be one to stand up against these actions. However, we can only do this with YOUR help.
