Justin Livingston is a lifelong Oregonian. He grew up in Portland and Salem. He moved to Bend 20 years ago this year.
Justin is running for re-election to the Bend City Council. He ran four years ago, because he believed the City Council could do a better job of addressing the problems of all the residents of Bend. Specifically, he was concerned about his children and many others being priced out of Bend. Since being elected, he has been focused on policies that make housing more affordable.
