Dallas For Deschutes 

I recently reread Lee Iacocca's book Where Have All the Leaders Gone? In his last chapter, he has a "Call to Action," where he reiterates his "9 C's of Leadership."

We have a unique opportunity here in Deschutes County to elect an exemplary candidate for county commissioner who embodies these important qualities of Leadership: Curiosity, Creativity, Communication, Character, Courage, Conviction, Charisma Competence and Common Sense. That candidate is Dallas Brown!

I would certainly add unparalleled energy and passion, a new perspective and a synergistic call to action. Dallas Brown is ready to address our community needs through thoughtful understanding, an open-minded and thorough review of existing programs and procedures, a sincere interest in current operations and how they might be improved, all interwoven with a fresh vision and commitment to collaboration, partnerships, new paradigms and models of proven success that we could incorporate here.

We cannot continue to do "tomorrow's work" with "yesterday's tools." This is not the time to look at arbitrarily reducing critical services, cutting the budget across the various departments at a given percentage, or laying off important staff to just survive; but, to use this time of "crisis" as an opportunity to review, redesign, redirect and emerge with a stronger, more responsible, creative and synergistic plan that will carry us forward not just into the next year, but for the next 50 years.

Dallas' own campaign is the best example of what we can expect from him in office. His work ethic, tireless energy, passion, values, caring and commitment will serve us very well.

Please vote Dallas Brown for Deschutes county commissioner.

    We recently visited Bend for the Film Festival and very much enjoyed ourselves, with one small exception. We parked our Ford in the public parking structure, only to find when we returned on Friday night that it had been spat upon, apparently in retribution for our Obama 2012 bumper sticker. I understand that whoever did this was passionate about politics, something I have always shared.

    After living in Bend for a year and a half, I recently stopped through on business. I love the town, the people, and all the outdoor beauty the area offers. One of my favorite things about Bend is without question, The Source. From the first time I read it, I knew it would be a cover-to-cover great time for me to enjoy all the stories, community news, the updates on all the music and arts, presentations, and great things goings on around town.
