Born Ronald Louis Boozell, Rondo is a US Navy Veteran, waited tables for over a dozen years, and for over a decade worked as a Credit & Collections Professional. For two years he owned and managed Central Oregon Collections. Among his varied experience in Sales, he worked for a phone book company selling yellow-page ads.
He has been known to deliver a few cords of firewood to Central Oregon residents and even worked on an Alaskan fishing boat as a fisherman and Crew Cook for a few months. Some will remember him as the Graveyard Shift Manager at Dennys.
He spent four years as a Volunteer at our Bend Community Radio Station. Half that time he was active on the Fundraising Committee. He is a Volunteer Chair every two or three months for a local Blood Drive. He's also a 6-gallon+ Donor.
He also volunteers weekly at Bend's Community Center, and also a few hours every week at the Information Desk at City Hall.
Last Summer he served on the committee that explored and discussed the Mayoral Ballot Issue.
He served on the Board of the Libertarian Party of Oregon for two years while also as the County Chair of the LPDC.
He seeks to bring a different perspective to the Bend City Council by proposing manageable, affordable, and sustainable growth to our city while focusing on the facilitation of Volunteer-based Community projects.
"We need to change our minds about Money, and re-think what is of Value" he claims.
