While Mayor Ryan holds the distinction for the longest serving member on the Blaine City Council, Councilmember Dick Swanson holds the record for longest serving in the role of councilmember. Swanson will retire at the end of his term this year after first being elected in 1994. Swanson was instrumental in adding an additional lane to Interstate 35W, a project now under construction after years of work. Another proud accomplishment for Swanson was the creation of Blaine’s first dog park. The dog park at Aquatore Park has been renamed by the city council as Swanson Dog Park. Congratulations Councilmember Swanson and thank you for your service to the people of Blaine.
A farewell celebration is planned for Monday, December 21. Learn more about the Blaine Farewell Celebration.
