Jennifer Plombon, a former Semiahmoo Residents Association board member and retired nurse, is challenging councilmember Eric Davidson for the Ward 3 Position 6 seat on Blaine City Council.
In a statement, Plombon said she wanted to be engaged with all Ward 3 residents as she hopes to enhance small businesses, the environment and tourism.
“I’d like to see more emphasis on environmental issues and how they relate to keeping Blaine a vibrant city,” Plombon said in a phone interview. “I think it’s very important we keep our water and our harbor clean because that’s one of the main reasons people come here.”
Plombon said in a statement she would also like to help businesses open safely for indoor dining and reduce waste from take-out and unnecessary bags.
Plombon said she decided to run for council now because her position ended on Semiahmoo’s residential association and she wants to invest her time in having more influence in the world.
Plombon has also served on Semiahmoo’s architectural standards committee and has volunteered at wildlife rehabilitation centers for more than 20 years. She is also a founding member and current board member of Hedgehog Welfare Society, a national nonprofit dedicated to hedgehog rescue and education. Plombon holds a bachelor’s degree in nursing and forestry from the University of Washington.
“It would be an honor to serve this community on council.” Plombon said in a statement. “I have the time and energy to really dig into the issues and come up with great solutions together.”
