Our Candidates / Texas / Sandra Blankenship

Sandra Blankenship

Running for Killeen City Council Member, District 3
Texas
Election: May 4, 2019

Sandra is a military spouse, a retired nurse, and a Killeen resident of 24 years. She was born to parents who worked their family farm, and her father worked in law enforcement. Growing up poor meant they grew their own food and had little to spare. Very early in life, she understood the importance of hard work, perseverance, and family.

Like many people living in District 3, she moved there as a military spouse in 1995 and has since been proud to call Killeen home. Sandra is a graduate of Central Texas College and built her career as a nurse. After retiring from nursing in pediatric home health, she became active in our community, working as an advocate for women and underrepresented members of her community.
