BEND CITY COUNCILOR 5: NATHAN BODDIE
We are looking for councilors who we believe will better represent community values when they make decisions.
BEND CITY COUNCILOR 6: LISA SEALES
Overall we believe that Seales will fill the leadership and moderator gap that departing Jodie Barram leaves.
CITY COUNCILOR 7: BARB CAMPBELL
City council needs more direct leadership—and leadership that actively draws in residents' viewpoints.
US SENATE: JEFF MERKLEY
We are endorsing the incumbent, but not with a great deal of enthusiasm.
US CONGRESS: AELEA CHRISTOFFERSON
As Central Oregon's demographics change, so should its representative.
GOVERNOR: JOHN KITZHABER
He is the better choice for Oregon, but more accountable should color Kitzhaber's next term.
OREGON HOUSE DISTRICT 54: KNUTE BUEHLER
For a region as diverse as this one, we are looking for a coalition builder.
COUNTY COMMISSIONER: JODIE BARRAM
Her endorsements and varied lists of contributors speak volumes to the community reach that Barram has developed—and, we believe, will bring to county commission.

MEASURE 92: YES
More information leads to smarter choices.
