Dave Clark Announces Candidacy for Anoka County Commissioner

Following 20 years of service to the City of Blaine, former council member runs for Anoka County Commissioner of District #6​

Blaine, MN – On Wednesday, May 25, 2022, former city council member and Blaine resident Dave Clark filed to run for one of the seven Anoka County Board of Commissioners seats. He is running to represent the residents of District 6, which spans from Spring Lake Park to most of Blaine, where he has lived for over 30 years.

“I am running to ensure Anoka County continues to be a great place to live, raise a family, and run a business,” said candidate Dave Clark. 


Dave’s top priority as Anoka County Commissioner will be to continue to work with federal, state, county, and local officials to improve the safety and traffic flow on highway 65. As a Councilmember in Blaine, he was part of a Council that eliminated uncontrolled intersections to improve safety; extended our frontage roads to give residents more options for travel within the city without having to use Highway 65; and built new overpasses at 121st, 125th (Main Street), and 129th which were major improvements to both safety and traffic flow. 


Dave is known as a fiscal conservative and has been an advocate for property rights, small business, and law enforcement. He has supported many projects that have contributed to the quality of life in Blaine, such as the Lakes Beach, the 2002 Open Space Referendum, the Blaine Wetlands Sanctuary, the addition for the Four Seasons Curling Arena, and numerous new retail businesses and restaurants. 


“I am honored to receive endorsement from retiring County Commissioner Robyn West and to continue the work she has done. Our community has grown over the years, and I am confident my experience and constituent-centered perspective has prepared me to continue to change the face of Anoka County for the better. I respectfully ask for your vote this election season.”


Dave graduated from Totino Grace High School, earned his BS from Mankato State University, and received his MBA from the University of St. Thomas’ Opus College of Business. Dave and his wife moved to Blaine 1991 where they raised their four children who all attended public schools and graduated from Blaine High School. Dave has been active with his kids’ activities, including coaching youth baseball, youth hockey, and being a “Dance Dad.”
