Pastor Brian Stockford simply says it is. Happy to see that Blaine, the individual, is following the path he is passionate about..

In the community, residents are divided. Some of them did not want to comment or wanted to wait to see what was proposed before doing so. Others think it’s a bad idea for him to represent himself or say they only support some of his ideas.

Blaine Higgs was elected to the district four times. Therefore, he announces that he is appearing for the fifth time.

The next elections are scheduled for October 2024, but the Prime Minister can always ask for them to be held earlier.
