LA PINE, OR -- Deschutes County Commissioner Tony DeBone announced Tuesday he will run for a third term. The south county Republican was first elected to the Board of County Commissioners in 2010, and says he’s focused on three areas he calls “of critical importance” in Deschutes County: Family wage jobs and the economy, creating an affordable community and less smoke in the summer.
DeBone said in a statement, “As one of your Deschutes County Commissioners I have been successful in keeping the county on a sustainable financial course. We have met challenges in a thoughtful, common sense, deliberate manner while keeping the public informed and involved. Deschutes County is respected around the state for providing appropriate services in a cost effective manner. My life experience is a benefit in this leadership position.”
