Lauren Sprang running for Bend Park and Rec Board


Lauren Sprang has announced her candidacy for Bend Park and Recreation District Board, Seat 5 for the upcoming May 16 th election.

This seat has no incumbent and Lauren is a first-time candidate who was inspired to run for office and make a difference in her community after attending meetings about local politics and Parks issues. Per Lauren, “I love our parks and want to maintain the quality of life they bring to Bend.”

Lauren is a civic-minded environmentalist with a passion for the outdoors. She earned a B.A. in Political Science and a minor in Economics from UC Davis. She has worked as a Technical Writer at Pearson, an international education and publishing company, and as a Senior Technical writer at Apple.

Lauren plans to advocate for working with the school district to build schools next to parks, enhancing recreational after-school and summer programs, and supporting the city with projects like connecting trails and roads. She believes in equal access to the outdoors for all citizens and acquiring land to protect habitat when possible.

She is endorsed by the Oregon League of Conservation Voters, former Bend Mayor Jim Clinton, Bend City Councilors Nathan Boddie and Barb Campbell, community leader Gena Goodman-Campbell and local public lands advocate Sarah Graham.
