Brian Douglass finished third with about 3.5 percent, followed by Michael Hughes with about 2 percent, Joshua Langlais just behind and Charles Webster Baer last at less than 1 percent.

Meanwhile, Barb Campbell won a three-way race for re-election to a second four-year councilor term with a similar tally of 49 percent of the ballots to challenger Sarah McCormick’s 43 percent and Ron (Rondo) Boozell with about 8 percent, as of Wednesday morning.

In the other Bend council race, Gena Goodman-Campbell won the Position 5 race with 64 percent to 31 percent for Andrew Davis and just under 4 percent for Victor Johnson.

In Redmond, Mayor George Endicott won re-election with 57 percent of the vote Wednesday morning to challenger (and former mayor) Ed Fitch at 43 percent.

A four-way race for three Redmond City Council seats found incumbents Jon Bullock and Jay Patrick winning re-election, at 30 and 29 percent, and Endicott’s wife, Krisanna Clark-Endicott, taking the third seat with 23 percent of the vote. Josefina Nury Riggs was fourth at 17 percent.

In La Pine, Daniel Richer defeated Connie Briese in the race for mayor, 56 to 44 percent, while Mike Shields and Michael Harper were winning a three-way race for two city council seats, with about 39 and 31 percent, and D. Scott Henderson not far behind at 29 percent.
