As a former state legislator who served three terms in the Minnesota House of Representatives and four years as District 5 county commissioner, Blaine said he brings extensive knowledge and experience to the Morrison County Boardroom and to the residents of Morrison County.

Blaine stated in a news release, โ€œIt has always been my belief that Government, on any level, is there to serve the people. As an elected official, I understand the importance of accountability and transparency in Government and will continue to bring that to the people of Morrison County. With my experience in public service, I am driven to use this knowledge to provide fiscal responsibility to the taxpayers of Morrison County. I will continue my work to develop, implement, and oversee policies that guide local government, and I pledge to provide responsive action in seeking to answer questions and meet the needs of the people of District 5 and of Morrison County.โ€

Blaine also currently serves on the board of firectors for Stearns Electric Cooperative Association. He is board president of the Gordon Rosenmeier Center of State and Local Government at Central Lakes College in Brainerd. Blaine and wife Michelle also crop farm on their family farm in Culdrum Township and are active members of Our Lady of Lourdes Church in Little Falls.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
