REDMOND, OR -- Redmond Mayor George Endicott easily won re-election, with 71% of the vote, Tuesday. City Councilor Anne Graham challenged Endicott with a platform that mirrored many of the Mayor’s policies. Graham’s campaign was marred by allegations she tried to influence the approval of building permits in her neighborhood. A state ethics investigation is in the early stages. 

 

In Sisters, Chuck Ryan, Andrea Blum and Richard Esterman each one positions on the City Council. With just under 11% of the vote, write-in candidates could not push past those listed on the ballot. 
 
For Crook County Judge, Seth Crawford beat Ken Fahlgren, 51% to 48%. And, Crook County voters also approved a $10-million jail bond. 
 
Madras voters chose to allow recreational pot producers inside the city and to impose a sales tax on marijuana. In Jefferson County, medical marijuana processors and dispensaries will be allowed in unincorporated areas. However, voters rejected proposals to allow recreational producers, processors, wholesalers and retailers.
