Chris Piper (R)
Appointed in a sham process. Has never been accountable to voters. Blew off Indivisible Bend multiple times. We are not fans.
Ron "Rondo" Boozell (Green Party)
We don't know what to say about Rondo.
Candidates for Position #4
Rita Schenkelberg (D)
Committed to mental health services, climate action, and the transportation bond. We've had enough all-white representation in Bend. As a queer person of color, Rita will bring an equity lens to city policy. We need Rita on council!

Michael R. Hughes
Who is this guy? Mostly he grows pot and represents pot growers in court. His policies are same-old, same-old GOP. Snore.
Anon (Bubba) Walters (R)
