I believe we need better representation from a broader board. Phil Chang is doing a great job and being in the minority is unfair and unbalanced.

The county is growing in population, and as the population grows the problems grow. We had our first mass shooting 2022, a new city of mountain view maybe coming our way, and countless natural disasters, covid-19 and many more! It's time to grow.

Absolutely! The Commission is invisible to most county residents but plays an important role for 200k residents.

The only reason Chang wants it is to get more liberals on the board and change the majority!! We have a 100 % LIBERAL ACTIVIST city council we don't need a liberal majority board of commissioners or we'll be DOOMED!! The ONLY thing that saves us from madness in this county is a conservative board!!

3 is enough any more is a waist of money, if i think about it it probably should only be ONE, less government is better for the people. Chang wants more so he can have more socialist liberals on the board. He also wants nonpartisan elections so they can lie about who they are to be elected.

Anyone who believes that bigger government is the answer probably came from California or ran away from the Peoples Socialist Republic of Portland. The transplants from west of the cascades and California are destroying Central Oregon.

Beginning to look like the city wants to be a mini Portland. Not what Central Oregon is all about.

Piping the canals to conserve water is the logical next step. Where does Commissioner Adair think the wildlife got a drink before the canals were made over 100 years ago? I will admit reducing Junipers and reinvigorating our wild grasslands makes sense.

The canals were not put in as "water features" for people's backyards. Build your own water feature and pay for the water. This water is meant for agriculture.

Commission Adair, where do you think wildlife get water when irrigation water is off Oct-March? Please share your plan and funding strategy for removing 5 million juniper trees. What will happen to the wildlife that live in those trees. Your argument is weak.

Why do Bend residence have to accommodate Jefferson county. I'm sure someone up there can figure a way go pump the water they need out of Lake Billy Chinook

Wildlife has relied on these open canals for decades. There is no other option for critter water.
