Bend First.
Bend Together.

“Our national politics are polarized and too divided. But in Bend, we make positive change through collaboration. Parents wanting the best schools for their kids, a young person seeking a job or career or a family working to make ends meet – none have time for political nonsense. And neither do I. A 25-year marriage, working in our small business and serving on the school board, I’ve learned good things happen when you respect and work together.

As your State Representative, I’ll be an inclusive, independent voice for Bend. I’ll listen and advance pragmatic ideas for better schools, more job opportunities and protecting Bend’s treasured quality of life,”

Cheri Helt for State Representative

I want to thank all the members of the Bend-La Pine Schools Boundary Committee for all their hard work. I believe setting new boundaries is one of the most difficult things a school district has to do. Last evening at Skyview Middle School, members of the committee presented three options to families and listened to both positive and negative feedback. I enjoyed speaking and listening to parents about these new proposed boundary changes. Parent brought forward concerns about traffic patterns, school changes, transportation as well as praise for logical shifts to manage the growth we are experiencing. Thursday, December 6 from 4:30-6:30pm at Pacific Crest Middle School, the committee will be available to listen to public input. Please take time to give your feedback so the committee can consider your input before bringing forward a final recommendation.

Today was a beautiful day for a parade! The air was crisp and cool with the sun peaking out. Everyone way dressed in their best festive gear. It is a long standing tradition in our house to watch the Christmas Parade in Downtown Bend, Oregon. We have been attending since we moved here in 2004, and we love to watch our local young people show off their horses, talents, and musical skills. It is such a festive way to start off our holiday season. Here are a few highlights!
