PRINEVILLE, OR -- Crook County Commissioner Brian Barney has launched his first election campaign; he announced last week he’s running to keep his seat in November 2018. "I’ve never really considered myself as a politician, so this is new territory for me. I’m hoping that it is a nice campaign and doesn’t get some ugliness that campaigns can generate. I’m not going to participate in that."

 

He was appointed to the position in February, filling the seat vacated when Seth Crawford was elected County Judge. Barney is completing Crawford's term, which ends in December 2018. "I’m a native of Prineville; I’ve lived here my whole life. And, I enjoy the work; I enjoy people and I want to try and do well and help the county." He tells KBND News, "I’ve been in business for 35 years, doing what I do. I’ve served on a lot of organizations and done quite a few things. I think I have a lot of business experience and I think that’s been useful."
 
Barney believes housing and employment are the biggest issues facing Crook County.
