My Vision for Bloomington:


Bloomington deserves a mayor who will listen, learn, and lead - in that order. I pledge to bring true leadership that gets things done, change the culture of City Hall, and put people before politics.

    Amanda is the change we need and the voice we deserve. She will work for all citizens of Bloomington. Her energy, enthusiasm and leadership know no bounds.
    Kim Alexander, Bloomington Township Trustee
  • Susie Johnson - President, Monroe County Plan Commission
    For Amanda Barge, "back to the basics" is more than slick campaign talk. She will emphasize effective partnerships with all utility companies to prioritize the good, solid repair work our city needs. When Amanda puts forward a budget, you know that sidewalk and street repair will be at the forefront.
    Susie Johnson - President, Monroe County Plan Commission
  • Kate Wiltz, County Councilor
    Amanda embodies exactly what local politics needs right now: honesty, dependability, and inclusion. Amanda’s commitment to local people and businesses is refreshing and will go a long way toward restoring our community’s faith in local leadership and decision making. Amanda’s hard-won seat at the table has elevated marginalized voices, opened doors, and has shown that compassionate leadership gets results. Bloomington deserves that leadership and Amanda Barge as its mayor.
    Kate Wiltz, County Councilor
  • Eric Spoonmore, County Councilor
    Amanda Barge is a strong, compassionate leader with a proven track record for delivering successful outcomes in our community.  When faced with a challenge, she does her homework, builds consensus, and takes bold action. As Monroe County Commissioner, Amanda has successfully brought greater transparency to government, and she has received national recognition as a leading advocate for embracing harm reduction strategies in the fight against addiction. Amanda’s transparent and compassionate leadership style is exactly what we need to move Bloomington forward.
    Eric Spoonmore, County Councilor
  • Charlotte Zietlow, Former City Councilor and Former County Commissioner
