Former Bend City Councilor Oran Teater was honored as Citizen of the Year at last nights' Sage Awards at the Riverhouse. Teater, says he was taken by surprise at the announcement. He says he’s followed a simple philosophy all his life: "My philosophy is, there's a little quote, and it's 'giving back to the community is the rent you pay to live here'. And I think everybody has a responsibility to do that. I don't think it has to be in dollars, it can be in time and talent. And it can be from being a Boy Scout leader to coaching Little League to serving on a variety of committees, but I think everybody should help." Teater, who finished out his term on the Bend City Council in January, now chair of the OSU Cascades; is on the Juniper Ridge Management Board and serves on the Governors’ Council of Economic Advisors. Teater says he wants to slow down a bit, but will always remain active in local projects. 1110 KBND congratulates Oran Teater as the Citizen of the Year.
