BEND, OR -- long-time Deschutes County Commissioner Tammy Baney has lost her bid to hold on to her Position Three seat. Her challenger, Patti Adair edged out a 698-vote lead in Tuesday night’s Republican primary – although results are not official. Adair is expected to take on James Cook in November. Cook was unopposed in the Democratic Primary. 

 

Baney released a statement to KBND News, saying Wednesday morning, "I am proud of the work I have done for our county. Having led us through the recession, expanded mental health and veteran services, reduced burdensome regulations and increased transparency at the state level to address local transportation and housing needs, the work is never really done. I look forward to continuing to serve in the next few months and I am grateful for those who have mentored, challenged and supported me. Deschutes county is a dynamic, economic force in Oregon, I am proud to be a part of it."
