Hi, I’m Calvin Balch and a candidate for Mayor of Blanding City. I believe in being honest, honest with the people who elect me and those who didn’t and honest with self. I believe in honor; it is a gift a person gives oneself.
I served the citizens of Blanding from 1985 until 2004 as a local banker. During that time I served on the Board of Adjustments for 9 years and as Mayor for 6 years.
I am much more conservative than liberal. I believe we as a people, individually and as a community should stay out of debt as much as possible.
The city needs to grow to maintain a good tax base and stay vibrant, but that growth needs to be controlled and with purpose.
We need to be involved in land use issues and make sure we do not lose control of the beautiful city and county in which we live.
Government should be by the people and for the people, not by the person and for the person. I am asking you to vote for me on November 5.
