Changes To Redmond City Council Coming In 2023

REDMOND, OR -- Redmond’s City Council will look different in the new year. Councilor Krisanna Clark-Endicott announced Tuesday she won’t seek re-election in November. Hers is one of three seats up for grabs this year.

Councilor Jay Patrick has filed to run for Mayor, opting not to run to keep his Council seat. And, the third position is held by Cat Zwicker, who plans to run for a full term after being appointed in 2021, although she has not yet submitted all appropriate paperwork. According to the City Recorder, Branegan Dixon and John Nielsen have filed to run for Council, and Kathryn Osborne and Bill Trumble say they are running but have not submitted paperwork.

Also running for Mayor: Councilor Ed Fitch, who lost his last race for Mayor in 2018. His Council seat isn’t up this year, so he’ll remain if he loses his Mayoral bid. Charles Baer, who ran unsuccessfully for Bend Mayor four years ago. And Ben Schimmoller, who narrowly lost to Jack Zika in the 2018 Republican primary for House District 53. 

Clark-Endicott is married to Mayor George Endicott who previously announced he’s retiring at the end of the year.


UPDATE (4:30 p.m.) -- Redmond's City Recorder says Cat Zwicker submitted her candidate paperwork Wednesday and officially qualifies for the November ballot.
