It's Called Teamwork 

During these trying and often polarizing times, it is especially noteworthy when an entire community unites for a cause. With the recent headlines related to the Oregon Liquor Control Commission (OLCC) and their former Bend regional manager, I find it appropriate to thank those people who led the effort to achieve positive change with the OLCC on behalf of our community.This was an extraordinary accomplishment that had an immediate impact on the lives of our citizens and the economy of our city.

Change of this magnitude could have only been accomplished with the bipartisan and unified commitment that our citizens, community leaders, and elected officials exemplified during this process - an extremely challenging and time-consuming endeavor that culminated with the governor supporting our community's cry for help.

In addition to thanking the many individuals and businesses that led this effort, it's also important that we take this opportunity to recognize the power of a unified community. When it comes to the well-being of Bend, I encourage and challenge each of you to remember the power that our unification generated with the OLCC situation, and to look for additional ways to partner together as a citizenry for the betterment of Bend.

- Jodie Barram, Bend city councilor
