Meet Patti

Oregon native Patti Adair currently holds Position 3 as a Deschutes County Commissioner.   She and her husband Bob live on their horse ranch in Sisters, Oregon, which was always a family dream.  Patti Adair’s family settled in Eastern Oregon near Ukiah in the 1850’s.  She grew up in Heppner, Oregon, and is familiar with the joys and struggles of rural life on a ranch.   Many years of her young life were spent as a 4-H member and Rodeo Royalty.   She received her Bachelor of Arts in History from the University of Oregon and a CPA license from Washington State after attending Central Washington University.

Over the years, Patti has coordinated various fundraising projects and served in leadership roles ranging from schools to hospitals.  In addition, she worked as an Auditor and Full Cycle Accountant at Moss Adams.  Her financial background is pivotal in identifying sound fiscal policies and providing strong oversight towards your tax dollars.  While raising three boys, she managed a successful family horse operation.

In November 2018, Patti was elected as a Deschutes County Commissioner.  She tackles problems with a determined, enterprising, and industrious work ethic.  As a longtime resident of Central Oregon, she understands working family concerns and is always sensitive to the things that affect them.  Many people talk about Central Oregon and Deschutes County values, but she has a long-term, personal appreciation.

Patti can be found with her horses or supporting local businesses when not occupied with official county duties.   She makes a point of visiting local boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, and family-owned businesses.  She advocates for them, understands their difficulties, and is aware of their importance to our region’s success.

Patti sees each new day as a fresh opportunity to support and enhance the lives of Deschutes County Residents.  With her leadership, everyone in the beautiful heart of Oregon will continue to thrive!

“I listen – and work to solve problems.”
