Bend will be getting a new mayor come November. Current Mayor Jeff Eager has decided not to run for re-election. But he insists the intense debate over the Surface Water Improvement Project did not play a role in his decision to step down. “One of the things I was weighing that made me want to run more, was a single issue advocacy group that wants the City of Bend to give up its dual water source. I think that would be a big mistake. Hopefully, there will be people who will run and they'll make the right decision going forward.” Eager will remain mayor until November. He says he hopes to contribute to the community in other ways.
