REDMOND, OR -- Redmond’s City Council remains short one member, more than two months after the resignation of Anne Graham. Mayor George Endicott admits he’d initially hoped to have a new Councilor appointed by now. "The way the process technically has to work is that we must first accept the resignation by the former Councilor. So, she resigned but we had to accept it, which didn’t happen until earlier in September; so it got delayed a few weeks just because of timing."

 

Now, the process is moving forward, "I chose to open it up for two weeks to let people apply," Mayor Endicott tells KBND News, "We had nine applicants. And now, we’re going to do the interviews next week and my goal now is to have one in place the first meeting of November." He's pleased with the pool of applicants. "I’ve always said that anybody that wants to run should run for the right reasons. I want to make sure we get someone that really cares about the community overall and all the issues involved. And, don’t forget, Anne’s term would’ve been over the end of next year, so this is really going to be about a 15-month appointment."

 

Graham resigned in mid-August. At the time, she told KBND News it was due to her deteriorating relationship with the Mayor.
