Deschutes County Commissioner Tony DeBone announced Tuesday he will run for reelection for Position 1.
DeBone, a Republican, was first elected to the commission in 2010.
Tatom serves on the Central Oregon Community College board of directors and the Deschutes Rural Fire District #2 board of directors.
In a statement, DeBone said managing growth will continue to be a challenge in the coming years.
“In the next few years siting a new landfill is going to be important. The existing landfill is an enterprise operation operated by your local government,” he said. “It is very cost effective and I support keeping the next facility in the county.”
DeBone also supports a plan to expand the county courthouse to accommodate two new judges and the District Attorney’s office.
