North Bend City Councilman Alan Gothelf is hoping voters will support him in his bid for a third term at Position 2.

“I am excited to announce my candidacy for re-election to the North Bend City Council,” he said. “It has been an honor to serve the citizens of North Bend for the last eight years and I hope to continue to serve (them) for four more years. “

Gothelf is the 2017 chairperson of the city’s Finance and Administration Committee and a member of the Public Health and Safety Committee. He also represents the city on the Eastside Fire and Rescue board of directors and is currently serving as the board chairperson.

“My number-one priority has always been public safety,” he said. “I have worked hard to deliver one of the most professional and efficient fire departments in the county. My dedication to this priority has led me to serve for seven years on the board of Eastside Fire and Rescue, and to be elected as its chairperson for the last two and a half years.”

Gothelf added that he has been endorsed for his position by the Eastside Fire and Rescue Firefighters.

As a “relentless advocate of fiscally conservative policies,” he promised to “continue this fiscally conservative approach,” and tells citizens, “I will continue to implement your vision for this great city by preserving our rural character, natural beauty and small town scale while balancing the rights of property owners.”

The general election will be Tuesday, Nov. 7.
