August 28th is the deadline for all people interested in running for the Bend City Council to submit their officially completed and verified petitions.   

 

Robyn Christie, Bend City Recorder says currently there are 11 candidates vying for four positions, which makes for a very full election slate.  "It is pretty full. There are a lot of interesting political issues right now, which gets more people interested in local politics. The petition process does take a little bit of time. They need to file paperwork with my office; they need to gather 150 signatures and then have those verified by the County Clerk, and then have those back to my office by 5 p.m. on the 28th."

 

Christie says most of the candidates have been actively coming to City Council meetings, and have spoken on a variety of subjects during the "Public Comments" portion.

 

As of Tuesday afternoon; two new candidates have thrown their hats into the ring: Wade Fagan will challenge Victor Chudowsky for Position One and Sally Russell will challenge Kathie Eckman and Ron Boozell for Position Three.
