UPDATE: Two Councilors Proposing Mayoral Slate 

Bend City Councilors Jim Clinton and Jodie Barram are hoping to be considered a "slate" for mayor and mayor pro tem of Bend.

The mayor and mayor pro tem, which is sort of like deputy mayor, are picked by the other councilors in what has usually been basically a popularity contest among them.

But things have been a little different this time around, with councilors asking the public to weigh in on who deserves the job. In the case of Clinton and Barram, they said they are going to leave it to the council who should get exactly what job, but that the public should voice opinions.

"Mayors were often chosen by being 'next in line,'" wrote Clinton. "Bend is now too big and complex, and the stakes are now too high to continue this way."

Clinton gave five reasons for why he should be mayor.
