BEND, OR -- Changes are coming to Bend, Redmond and Sisters city councils. Barb Campbell beat incumbent Scott Ramsay for Bend City Council position 7. Early in the evening, Ramsay was surprised with initial returns, "Because there was so much negative campaigning in the first cycle, and I was trying to stay above all of that." He added, "The things I had heard, the feedback I got was that [voters] were tired of negative ads, and election results are coming out a little bit different than that, so it's a little disappointing."
Incumbent Bend City Councilor Mark Capell was also unseated in his position 5 race. Nathan Boddie won that seat by a 10% margin.
In Redmond, Jay Patrick, Anne Graham and Tory Allman will take the three seats up for grabs. The fourth candidate, Ed Onimus, received only 19% of the votes - not enough to rank in the top three.
The Sisters City Council had five candidates vying for three seats. Nancy Connolly, Wendy Holzman, and David Asson came out on top.
And, in Crook County, Seth Crawford has been re-elected to the Crook County commission, defeating challenger Walt Wagner.
In Jefferson County, the Commissioner race between Mae Huston and Thomas Brown is still too close to call, with only one vote separating them.
