Arnold Concedes Bend City Council Seat to Ramsay

Scott Ramsay wins the hotly contested Bend City Council race after a recount.

Just off the phone with council candidate Chuck Arnold who informed that he has conceded the final council seat from last month's election to his opponent Scott Ramsay, following a hand recount that determined Ramsay edged Arnold by a razor-thin three vote margin. An upbeat Arnold said that he felt very positive about the recount process and confident that the hand recount was accurate. Arnold, who also serves as the executive director of the Downtown Bend Business Association, said he looks forward to working with the council and Ramsay.

"I'm still going to be around," said Arnold, who when asked about the possibility of a future campaign, said he had not ruled it out.

"A lot change in 24 months. I feel really good. It was a great campaign. I have no regrets about how any of this went."

Got to run, but I'll try to get a comment from Ramsay before the end of the day.
