Locals Hold Republican Leadership Positions

Locals now hold both major Republican leadership roles in the Oregon Legislature. Prineville Representative Vikki Breese-Iverson is the new caucus leader in the House, replacing Representative Christine Drazan, who stepped down on Tuesday. This comes just after Bend Representative Tim Knopp took over as the Senate’s GOP leader in October.

Careless smoking near an oxygen tank is likely the cause of a fire that killed a Prineville woman Saturday night. Crook County Fire and Rescue arrived at a mobile home in the Juniper Canyon neighborhood just before 10 p.m. Two men who lived on the property had already put out the fire with garden hoses, but the woman was still inside. When crews got inside, they discovered the woman deceased in the living room, where she’d reportedly been sleeping. Investigators say the woman had a history of smoking in bed and was on oxygen.

Senators Recommend Finalists for U.S. Attorney

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel is not among the finalists for U.S. Attorney for Oregon. Following public input and interviews with the seven applicants, a committee ranked the candidates, including Hummel. Senators Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley submitted three other names for the President to choose from.



Redmond Councilor Applications Due Monday

The City of Redmond is looking to fill several vacancies--a City Council seat and a handful of committee positions. Councilor John Bullock resigned and most committee positions turnover annually. Mayor George Endicott tells KBND News City Coucil members act as the policy members and encourages anyone who wants to figure out how local government works and wants to make a time contribution to apply. Mayor Endicott hopes to appoint someone by the end of the calendar year. Redmond residents can download the online application. Anyone interested in the vacant councilor seat needs to submit the paperwork by Monday, November 29th. Whoever is selected will finish the term, which runs through December 31, 2022. Redmond residents interested in committee work need to complete a separate application.
