Redmond, Oregon Mayor George Endicott’s life was turned upside down in 2014 when his wife Lynda died only a few days after being diagnosed with cancer. Three years later, he is a newlywed married to another Oregon mayor.
Central Oregon Daily’s Donna Britt sat down with Mayor Endicott and his new wife, Krisanna Clark, to talk about how they found love after loss.
Redmond Mayor George Endicott is now a married man. The Mayor met Sherwood, Oregon Mayor Krisanna Clark at the Mayors Association Summer Conference in 2015 and at the most recent conference, the two Mayors held a surprise wedding.
Political statements from professional athletes are nothing new. From Muhammad Ali’s refusal to enter the Vietnam War, to the two Olympic runners who raised their fists in the Black Power salute on the medal stand at the 1968 Olympics, athletes have used their high-profile positions to take a stand about causes important to them. The beloved baseball pioneer and Civil Rights activist Jackie Robinson refused to stand during the national anthem during his playing days, saying he didn’t support what the American flag stood for. Tonight, NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is under fire for taking that same stand. Central Oregon Daily’s Anyssa Bohanan looks at how everyone from veterans, to law enforcement, are reacting to Kaepernick’s actions.
