The Bend City Council tonight will again debate whether the city should switch to electing its mayor, like most large cities in the state. City Councilor Jim Clinton feels strongly we should change. But a committee selected to look into the matter, recommended we continue to appoint the position. Councilor Clinton says that's not what he's hearing from residents: “Yeah, I’ve heard feedback and its why wouldn't you want an elected mayor? But realizing that they've never gotten to vote for mayor. The main reaction I get is why wouldn't you do that since most cities do it pretty much.” Bend is only one of 19 cities in Oregon that doesn't elect its mayor.
