Erlin Taylor

Friends & Neighbors,

Bend is a wonderful place to live, yet throughout all corners of our community, I’m hearing my neighbors say they’re worried about our quality of life. We all want more opportunity whether that’s more affordable places to live, stable income and job security, safer streets, or frankly, just feeling like they have someone on their side to listen. 

Our neighbors’ issues are all our issues. As our next city councilor, I will bring a new voice and a fresh perspective to how we’ve managed the city and how we will better manage it going forward.

I would appreciate your support and your vote this November.

Together for a better Bend,

Erlin Taylor
Bend City Council, Position 4

Principles

Justice
Fairness
A Thriving Community
Equality

HOUSING AFFORDABILITY

We can all agree the cost of living right now is untenable. Finding a place where you can live safely, work, go to school, raise a family or just enjoy our city shouldn’t be. Bend lacks the residential inventory and the types of housing options thriving communities rely upon. Our city can become a place that allows citizens to come here and work, live and stay.

THE HOMELESSNESS CRISIS

It is never okay for our neighbors to sleep on the streets or under an overpass. We must address these issues with multifaceted solutions such as increased community resources, more mental and behavioral health support, more available short-term and long-term housing, and by enforcing the laws. We deserve better – all of us.

A THRIVING COMMUNITY

A thriving community is a strong community. Building a stronger community means supporting our local businesses, encouraging smart growth and entrepreneurship, and opening the doors to innovation. We can support small local businesses while also ensuring we aren’t closing out economic drivers and job creators.

A BETTER BEND

For far too long, the City Council has ignored finding long-term solutions to major issues like water rights, natural resources, infrastructure and traffic congestion, tourism, and more. These are critical issues for our every day quality of life, and also for that of future generations. I will take bold action to establish objectives and goals to address these issues and improve the quality of life for our citizens.
