Bend La Pine Schools Superintendent Ron Wilkinson hopes that Saturday's tragic event and other recent shootings don't discourage people from serving in public office. "It certainly makes you stop and think, you know, what am I exposing myself to? But I think the servant spirit that most people who run for office have probably prevails in those situations. I hope it doesn't eliminate really strong candidates for positions in the future." Ron Wilkinson was a guest on the KBND’s "Your Town" Monday. He is hoping that in this tight budget environment lawmakers won't short schools the money they need.
