Deschutes County voters elected Dallas Brown to be the newest member to the Bend Parks and Recreation Board. Brown has run for City Council and County Commission before, but this time he admits its nice to be on the winning side. “I was really happy with the results. It's nice to know that I have that kind of support in the community. I'm looking forward to working on the Parks and Rec Board and helping citizens here realize their vision for parks.” The Parks and Rec Board is a volunteer position and it meets twice a month. Brown says after last Novembers’ defeat for County Commissioner, he wasn't inclined to run again for public office, but supporters encouraged him to continue to be involved in the community.
