Perfect candidate to run against a republican. He would need to resign from his senate seat, spend millions of dollars of dem. money, drop out before primary and disappear from Oregon history.

He will take a principled stand on issues that serve the public good. He has the courage, conviction and dedication to take this stand for us. Yes, Absolutely!

I'm a Democrat and believe Merkley is a good man, but I've met him and seen him speak in person. He literally sucks the energy out of a room and doesn't possess the persona to get us back into the WH

"Voted red all the way". Well, communism is red, however, so is a closed mind.

Why? He is not nationally known, like a Rubio or a Kasich. It would guarantee another term for the idiot who now occupies the Office,

I don't even know how he keeps getting elected to the office he has. He is worthless.

Merkley is waaay too far left. He talks big, produces nothing that makes Oregon better.

He is the most divisive Senator we have. He is a propaganda driven, progressive left politician that has no care for the real people he represents. Can't stand him. Sorry.

While I like Merkley, he does not have the personality to run.

He's respectable, but still partisan and too far left.

He's ignorant of what the voters need in Oregon. So, no, he should not run. He does not have the expertise to even be a senator.

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.
