Angel Valentín

Wabash Township Trustee

I have known James Blanco since our time as students at Purdue University. Like many other folks in our community, James decided to stay here and work to continue building up our community. James is focused on the economic issues that affect our community: the need for more affordable housing, the need to continue building up our public infrastructure, and the need to build a more sustainable future for generations to come. 

James has also been a strong supporter of our community's first responders, and he stood by Wabash Township's firefighters during the department's darkest days. That's why I know that he will continue to be an asset in our City Council as he supports the city's first responders and its employees.

That's why I'm proud to support James for re-election. I know that he will continue to work with the City Council and the Mayor's Office to build a better future for our community.

Kathy Parker

West Lafayette City Councilor, District 5

James and I came on the council at the same time in 2019. He is a dedicated and comitted public servant who listens well and strives to solve the real problems that face West Lafayette. I'm proud of James for his tireless efforts and his collaboration with his colleagues to find solutions.

Mónica Casanova

Fairfield Township Trustee

I am proud to support James Blanco for West Lafayette City Council, At Large. Blanco is a progressive, Democratic candidate who fights for government transparency and better government. Blanco has served on the board for CityBus to improve access to transportation for West Lafayette residents and students, and he's committed to building a more sustainable future. James's experience as a working-class resident of our community will continue to inform his role on the council, and will ensure there is always a voice in the council looking out for all of West Lafayette's residents. That's why James Blanco has my support and endorsement for West Lafayette City Council, At Large.
