The City of Bend has a new mayor. City Council voted Wednesday night to appoint Jeff Eager for the City's highest office. Eager says the budget is his biggest worry: “There are some significant challenges facing Bend and the City of Bend in the next couple of years. Our City budget hurts because people in Bend hurt right now, and until we get to a position where people are better off financially and economically, our City budget is not going to be any better, we've gotta turn this thing around.” Jodie Barram was appointed by the Council to serve as Mayor Pro-Tem, and she will serve as Mayor in Eager's absence. Eager says he favors amending the City Charter to change the way Bend elect's it's mayor. He would like to see voters choose the mayor but that is a decision that will have to be made by voters.
