Former Bend Planning Commissioner Sally Russell has thrown her hat into the ring to run for Bend City Council Position Number 3.
Currently, Kathie Eckman holds that seat and will run for reelection.
Russell says she's always been interested in city issues and she says now just seems to be the right time.
"I've always been interested in doing what I could to bring my talents to this city to hopefully, make it a better place. I just finished work on the Galveston Rebuttalization plan last spring. My girls are a little older and I was thinking that it was time to something with a little more substance."
Russell says while she's not ready to comment on the hot topics, like the Surface Water Improvement Project (SWIP), she's going to start preparing for any debates or community forums that may happen.
