Leadership

Building a Better Bend

Over the years, as an entrepreneur, Bill heard many people say, “I could choose to live anywhere and I chose Bend.”  Bill wants Bend to stay that way – for us and for our children.  To keep the Bend we love, we need leadership. 

Leaders bring people together by listening and finding ways forward. Bill solves problems by finding common ground.  Avoiding the label of a growth-war partisan, Bill brings people together to find practical solutions that meet our needs. 

Many challenges, like services for the homeless and mentally ill, improve by encouraging cooperation and planning among existing entities. Collaborating on communitywide problems also relieves pressure and overtime costs on Bend’s police and medic crews.

When difficult choices need to be made, Bill applies his strategic thinking skills that successfully grew his software business to more than 60 local employees over the last 20 years.  With leadership, Bill harnesses the collective abilities of Bend’s people, businesses and nonprofits to keep and sustain the Bend we love.

Bill enjoys maintaining a dialog with the residents of Bend. Like his Facebook page to join the conversation; see the Facebook link on the Home page.

Objectives

  • Restructuring the council to provide stronger, stable leadership
  • Collaborating with residents, businesses and nonprofits in the decisions that impact Bend
  • Strategic planning focused on tangible, long-term results
