Ed Barbeau's Mystery Campaign | Letters to the Editor | Bend | The Source Weekly - Bend, Oregon

Coverage for Central Oregon, by Central Oregonians.
100% Local. No Paywalls.

Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

Please consider becoming a supporter of locally owned journalism through our Source Insider program. Learn more about our program’s benefits by clicking through today.

Ed Barbeau's Mystery Campaign

WTF??

He's got ads on the radio, he's got yard signs, he's turned up at the county commission work sessions. About the only place you won't find a trace of Ed Barbeau and his campaign is with the Secretary of State's Office where Barbeau lists only a single expenditure, $450 for a booth at the Karl Rove event. Candidates have seven days after incurring an expenditure to file a report with the SOS's office.
Those who fail are subject to fines and the office has already sent a letter to Mr. Ed wondering where his reports might be, according to a staffer there who said it would be unusual for someone with a media campaign not to have some report filed a week prior to the voting deadline. So Ed, why aren't you showing us the money?
