About Me

Hello! I'm James Blanco, and I'm proud to serve you on the West Lafayette City Council as an at-large member. I'm a graduate of Purdue University and work full-time as an auto mechanic. I can tell you about many of the struggles working people face because I've faced them myself.

My path here was not straightforward. I've worked retail, manufacturing, and automotive. Working in all these industries has connected me with many wonderful people and their experiences, and I'm proud to bring that understanding to the city council. I'm proud to be a unique voice to advocate for you.

During my time on the city council, we've faced many challenges, some of which we've never faced before, including a global pandemic and a historic housing shortage. I'm working everyday to help address these issues and so much more. And that's why I ask for your support for my reelection in the upcoming May 2nd primary.

Join us on the journey to move West Lafayette forward!
