Ready to Move Midland Forward

20190812_20I5663.jpg

A native Midlander, Lori Blong knows what it takes to deliver results and move Midland forward.  A wife, mother and local small business owner, Lori’s passion for Midland shines through on the city council where she worked to lead Midland through the COVID pandemic while improving essential city services.  

Now, with the support and encouragement of former mayors and hundreds of local individuals, Lori is ready to lead as our next Mayor, using our God-given resources to create a high quality of life built on the foundation of strong fiscal responsibility, workforce development, public safety, and customer service at City Hall.  Lori’s goal is simple –ensure that every Midland family can grow and prosper.

In addition to her service on the Midland City Council, Lori is council liaison for Midland EDC, past President of Habitat for Humanity, a member of Congressman Pfluger’s Energy Task Force, and a Permian Basin Petroleum Association (PBPA) Board Member. 

A former schoolteacher, Lori and her husband, Jared, now own and operate Octane Energy. They have three children and are members of Stonegate Fellowship Church.
