Ron Boozell 

City Council Pos. 6 (CANDIDATE)

AGE: 53

OCCUPATION: Community activist and volunteer

PARTY: Non-partisan

YEARS IN BEND: 24

PAST YEAR COUNCIL MEETING ATTENDANCE: Perfect attendance

PREVIOUSLY PLAYED FOR: "I attend many committee meetings every month, but I have been content to just show up and listen, learn the language and procedure. I am still the student. I may join a few of these committees in January."

TOP THREE GOALS:

1) Slow the arrival of 5,000-10,000 more students to Bend.

2) Initiate a temporary freeze on rent increases.

3) Create a self-funded Bend transit district with a 24-hour bus-system.

ON MIRROR POND: "Nature is presently taking down the dam. No charge. Literally, Bend wants its river back. I will not spend public money to restore the dam that serves the pond. There are creative plans on the table."

ON URBAN GROWTH BOUNDARY: "Our beloved Urban Growth Boundary is the number one issue for Council until April 2016, when we put this conversation to rest, and move on. Every city and county meeting I attend is about the UGB."

ON VACATION RENTALS: "This issue is born from the same place as our rent hike issue...as with other growing-pain issues we must solve this issue quickly."

BEST OF BEND: Rising real estate values

WORST OF BEND: Rising real estate values

FAVORITE MUSIC: STRIVE ROOTS/Eli Seth Lieberman

SIMPSON'S ALTER EGO: Homer Simpson
