BEND, OR -- Democrat Phil Chang won his first campaign for public office, winning Position 2 on the Deschutes County Board of Commissioners. He defeated incumbent Republican Phil Henderson. Chang told KBND news he learned the county plays an important role as a public health authority and its importance as a health service provider. He says while the county has done a lot to deal with COVID-19 he says more needs to be done. Chang says after he takes office he will ask the Board of Commissioners to send voters a ballot measure to make commissioner positions non-partisan.
