PRINEVILLE, OR -- The Crook County Court will look different, after the New Year. When Commissioner Seth Crawford won election to the top spot, this month, he was only halfway through his term. Judge-elect Crawford (pictured: left) and newly elected Commissioner Jerry Brummer (right) are expected to name a third member to the court when they take their new positions in January, leading to speculation over who that Commissioner will be.


Some people have rallied behind former Prineville City Councilor Jason Carr. He lost to Brummer in the general election by an 11% margin. "A number of my supporters - people who supported me when I announced, last year - have started an online petition," Carr tells KBND News. "I know a few folks have actually written letters to Seth Crawford and Jerry Brummer asking that I be considered as the appointee." He adds, "I'm certainly flattered by that; I appreciate everyone's support, at least those that have reached out to do that. Certainly, I ran for the office; if Mr. Brummer and Mr. Crawford choose to appoint me, I would certainly appreciate that."


Crawford replaces retiring Judge Mike McCabe; Brummer takes over for Commissioner Ken Fahlgren who ran unsuccessfully for Judge in November.
