Bulletin: Philo: Adair for Commissioner

Updated: Jan 22, 2019

11/3/2018, Bend Bulletin

Reporter Julia Shumway’s story in The Bulletin on Oct. 13, 2018, regarding Patti Adair and her challenger in the Deschutes County Commission race reminds me of a quote from Thomas Jefferson: “I will add, that the man who never looks into a newspaper is better informed than he who reads them.”

I find it curious that Ms. Shumway avoids any reference to her challenger’s record on the Redmond Urban Area Planning Commission regarding his decisions and actions that didn’t adequately address residents’ safety concerns near the Redmond Dry Canyon developments.

I also find it curious that the many elected officials who have been endorsed previously by The Bulletin have now endorsed Patti Adair for county commissioner while only a couple back her challenger. It is plain to see our current elected officials feel Ms. Adair will be an asset in our county leadership. I have attended the candidate forums and listened to the candidates. What I hear from Ms. Adair’s challenger is just more government spending and more taxes imposed on the citizens of Deschutes County.

Balanced reporting appears to be missing from Ms. Shumway’s candidate report. In doing my own independent research I firmly believe Patti Adair will be a frugal steward of our tax money and an advocate for the people. I will be voting for Patti Adair for Deschutes County Commission.
