Season’s greetings and happy New Year, Blaine and Birch Bay residents!

The Blaine/Birch Bay area is near to my home and my heart. Many times I visualize places like the Blaine marina and Birch Bay Drive with so many picnic spots, pretty green areas, breathless views and company. I can’t think of a more wonderful place to see a sunset.

The great food and the Fourth of July parade and fireworks always remind me how close a community can be.

It is an incredible jumping-off point for crossing the border and especially for looking forward to coming back to the U.S. It even makes the waiting lines at the border worth it. 

The small shops, family restaurants and chocolates at The C Shop in summer are fun and yummy. But I also love it all year round. It always makes me feel like I am part of a family because everyone is so hospitable.

I had to say all that because you always share your warmth and openness and you deserve nothing less from your elected officials. 

I will do my best to never let you down. And I hope you will always feel comfortable contacting me regarding any issues. You can email me at bbrenner@co.whatcom.wa.us or call me at 360/384-2762.
