Endorsement statement:

I support Rob McFarland for Mayor of North Bend not because he wants the job; but because he can DO the job!

 

Rob understands the heartbeat of our community.  How we are yearning for stability as we grow towards our future and not the lurching of seemingly unplanned growth.

 

He knows the lingo of the “building industry” and the “civil planning” commission, having occupied decisive positions in Public Service as Chair of the North Bend Planning Commission and alternatively as a residential builder.

 

Rob McFarland is no one’s fool.  He is everyone’s champion when skill is required to see what doing before it’s too late to get the doing done.... he knows the City of North Bend needs to have a solid grip on a long term (a very long term) source of water before any of our lofty growth plans can prevail.

 

McFarland knows how to form a collective among North Bend & Regional decision-makers (you & me) before jumping into the deep end.

 

Rob McFarland is honest, and a decision-maker.  I support ROB MCFARLAND for Mayor of North Bend.

Dick Ryon, KCD Chair, Board of Supervisors

Endorsement statement:

Way to go Rob McFarland for stepping up to run for Mayor of North Bend. Great person I served with on the Planning Commission and know him to listen, be thoughtful, calm demeanor, and make careful decisions with sound judgement. I think he will make a great Mayor and be able to work successfully with the staff and the Council.
