The discussion over whether Bend should elect its mayor isn't over. A citizens committee recently told the City Council it decided against changing from an appointed mayor to an elected one after further discussion. But City Councilor Jim Clinton feels its time Bend voters have a say in our leader. “I think there 253 cities in Oregon and only 19 still have appointed mayors. To me it's a carryover of small town days in Bend.” The 18 other cities are all smaller than Bend. The City Council is expected to take up the discussion again when it meets August 3rd.
