|Councilor, Camden King
I am a fourth-generation Redmondite and currently serving my second term as one of your Redmond City Councilors. Prior to being elected to Council, I served on the Urban Area Planning Commission. These experiences, along with my involvement in the Redmond Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and participation in the Board of Directors for Redmond Economic Development, Inc., has afforded me direct insight on how to help foster economic development, support our business environment and our downtown’s evolution in Redmond.
After graduating from Willamette University with a BS degree in Business Economics, I moved to Bend and worked for Deschutes Brewery for nearly a decade. During this time, I met and married my incredible wife. (We now have a family of three amazing daughters.) After leaving Deschutes, I briefly worked for a recruiting company in Idaho before starting my own company. Currently in my “day job” (and since 2001), I am the owner and manager of Bluespeed Executive Search, Inc., a small recruiting firm primarily focused in Consulting Services.
It is a privilege and honor to represent and serve the people of Redmond. I am fortunate to offer a historic perspective of our community, the required energy to help guide it and a current working knowledge of how to positively affect our City’s development and evolution. I enjoy working collaboratively with fellow Councilors as well as City Staff to make Redmond a “First Choice” place to live. Together, we will help ensure that all of our citizens (including the 5th generation of the King family in Redmond) feel a strong and positive sense of place, live in a community we can all be proud of and that we all have every opportunity a city like Redmond can provide!
