Burgermeister: North Bend's Ken Hearing voted Best Elected Official and serves the Best Burger

  • Mar 28, 2014 at 11:28AM

He’s got a little more experience in the burger category, since he’s owned Scott’s since 1990, and only been the mayor “10 years, two months, and 21 days,” but he also got a crash course in civic involvement, way back then.
