Richard Esterman ran for Governor as a write-in candidate back in 2010.
He decided to run for Deschutes County Commissioenr when he went to file for another position.
"Actually the main reason is I was thinking about going for State Representative when I went in, I inquried about a job desription for county commissioner and they said they didn't have one. So instead of runing for state rep, I feel my skills are needed in my own backyard."
Deschutes County Commissioner Tony DeBone is up for re-election next May.
