A prominent Bend orthopedic surgeon is considering a run for public office. Dr. Knute Bueher recently formed a Political Action Committee to investigate a run for Secretary of State in 2012. Dr. Buehler has never run for public office before, but feels he has the background for this job. “Secretary of State is an executive position. I have run the center, which is a fairly large facility that employs more people than the Secretary of State's Office, so I feel comfortable in that role. I think the Secretary of State's Office has underperformed for the last 12 years. There’s a lot of auditing, but not a lot of accountability.” Dr. Buehler plans to make a decision in October or November on whether to run. If he decides, he would be seeking the Republican nomination for Secretary of State in the may 2012 Primary.
