The Bend City Council is shaping up to be a very busy race this November.  Four Bend City Council Positions are up for grabs in November, and right now, there is plenty of interest. Some candidates are very familiar to the political scene and others are dipping their toes in for the first time.

 

In Position 1 currently held by Tom Greene, who is vying for a Deschutes County Commissioner post, Victor Chudowsky is the only candidate.

 

Position 2, currently held by Mayor Jeff Eager, Charles Baer, Edward McCoy, Edward “Ed” Barbeau and Doug Knight are all vying for the seat.

 

Position 3 currently held by Kathie Eckman, has Eckman back in the race with Ron Boozell challenging.

 

Position 4, which is Jim Clinton's seat; sees Clinton hoping to be re-elected and Mike Roberts challenging him.

 

Justin Finestone with the City says anyone else interested in running for a city council seat has until August 28th to file completed petitions.
