SISTERS, OR -- Sisters officials are reportedly questioning the residency of a City Council candidate. According to the Sisters Nugget, the city attorney sent a letter to Richard Esterman, this week, asking for verification that the candidate lives inside the city limits.
County property records show Esterman owns a home in Tollgate, northwest of Sisters. But, in his election filing, he said he rents a home in downtown Sisters and uses the Tollgate property as his office. City officials determined, however, the downtown residence has had minimal water usage and has never had garbage service.
