Message from the Mayor,


As a Clinton County native, Blanchester has been a place I’ve called home. As a resident of the Village for nearly 60 years, I have many memories of an active business district with a variety of businesses from Grocery, Hardware and Jewelry stores, Drug stores, 5&10, Clothing stores and diners.

Blanchester was a town that had something for everyone. We had festival and parades with a myriad of attractions for all ages. Blanchester was known as “a small town with a big heart”. The people were neighborly to one another, helping when needed. They took pride in their homes and business, keeping them well-maintained, free from trash and clutter and even applied a fresh coat of paint from time to time.

Now some would say those were the good old days. Well, I believe Blanchester can be as good as it once was if not better. I became a Council member, and now your Mayor, because I want to see our town flourish. I believed Blanchester should be a place where no one is treated any better than anyone else. Everyone should be treated fair regardless of who they are or who they know.

I wanted to see our property owners take pride in their homes and businesses once again. Blanchester has the potential for growth. We can be more than a village; We can be a place where people can come to live and work together. Blanchester can be a community where residents can feel safe; a place to own a home, raise a family, a community with a good school system focused on education first, with a strong police force and low crime and drug presence.

I believe in our community and our residents, we need to work together and build a better community where we can see growth, not decline. I believe in what Blanchester can be and that’s why I’ve lived here all these years. You’ve heard it said, “No man is an island” or, “There’s no ‘I’ in ‘team’”.


I need your help; Council and I can’t do it alone and neither can you. I want to challenge you to be a part of the TEAM, where Together Everyone Achieves More.


May God bless our community.




John M. Carman
