She is one of three commissioners and has been in the post since 2007.
Baney says the region is just beginning ot show signs of recovery and she has more work to do.
She serves in several positions on state commissions involving transportation, housing and healthcare.
"Well, it's an old adage, if you aren't at the table, you're on the menu. And Deshcutes County has no place on the menu. We need to be front and center in the conversation, so whatever is changing at the state, work wells with who we're serving at the local level."
Baney is pledging to invest in public safety and roads as well as removing barriers to busienss expansions.
So far Baney has no opponent. The election is May 20th.
