About Carol Blood:
I am a Nebraska native and raised my family here in Sarpy County. My husband Joe and I have been married for 28 years and are blessed with three children, seven grandchildren, and a wonderful Corgi named Ollie. I love this community and have been an active volunteer and community advocate for decades.
I began my political career in 2008 when I was elected to the Bellevue City Council as the At-Large (city-wide) Representative. I was re-elected in 2012. I know our community is full of hardworking and deserving citizens. My efforts on the City Council have been dedicated to addressing quality of life issues that had been ignored for decades, to ensure our community remains a safe place to live and raise our families. I strive to always be accessible to my constituents.
My track record of success includes saving tens of millions in taxpayer dollars by bringing forward common sense resident-centered ideas and policies, such as the new Public Safety Building/Police Campus, leading the vacant properties initiative that resulted in new state statute to protect area taxpayers, championing the surplus property initiative to sell and place city-owned parcels on the tax rolls, and working with law enforcement to craft effective ordinances that address theft and disorderly residences.
I want to take my proven record of success and enthusiastic spirit to the Nebraska Legislature. I am not interested in special interest politics that help only a privileged few. I want to take the concerns of my constituents and apply long-range planning that benefits us all.
It’s not about the “Republican way” or the “Democrat way” – it's about the Nebraska way! I understand our priorities and will work hard to serve the residents of Legislative District 3, Sarpy County, and Nebraska. I would be honored to have your vote on November 8. Together we can continue to make Sarpy County a great place to live and raise our families.
