The Bend City Council has three City Council seats and the position of Mayor that will be placed on the ballot for the November 2022 election. The Bend City Council is comprised of six council members and an elected Mayor. Council Members are elected to four-year terms. One of the Council positions is for the remaining two years of a vacated seat. Individuals elected to a seat on the City Council will begin serving in January 2023.
Before and after our speakers, we’ll have plenty of time for networking — plus bites and beverages. Beverages will be provided, including beer from Deschutes Brewery and cider from AVID Cider, plus appetizers from Bleu Bite Catering.
