PRINEVILLE, OR -- Crook County Commissioner Seth Crawford is running for County Judge in 2016. He has served as a Commissioner for four years. Now he wants to step up to the top administrative position in Crook County, currently held by Mike McCabe, who is not seeking re-election. Crawford filed for the position last week.
“My priorities are jobs, long-term budget planning, transparency and maintaining our quality of life. I believe those are the priorities of the people of Crook County and I think serving as judge puts me in a better position to implement these plans," he tells KBND News.
“I would say Apple and Facebook have been great additions to your community, but locally-owned businesses are our lifeblood. What we need to focus on are programs that help our community that don’t cost a lot of money."
Crawford is currently a realtor in Prineville. County Judge and Commissioners are non-partisan positions.
