It’s time for the citizens of Bend to elect their Mayor instead of having the City Council do it. That's the opinion of former Councilor Oran Teater. “There is a variety of reasons. Our mayor only serves a two year term. You need to develop relationships with other mayors in the region. With state elected officials, your own Congressional group. By the time you get all this done, you've been in office a year, or year-and-a-half; six months later you're out of office.” Teater would like to see an elected mayor serve a four year term. He feels allowing the general public to elect the mayor gives citizens a chance to hear the leadership platform of a prospective mayor. Currently, the City Council selects a mayor from within their ranks and they'll do that during tonight's 7 o'clock meeting. If the Council decides to change the process, it would only take a simple majority vote of the people to amend the City Charter .
