Delvin Plans To Run For Benton County Commissioner

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash.

State Senator Jerome Delvin says he's ready to leave Olympia for the Tri-Cities. The senator announced Tuesday he will run for the Benton County District 1 position.

The Richland native says his experience in Olympia will help him face the local issues, such as helping small business and keeping an eye on taxes.

"I think it's important to continue the efficient use of tax payer's monies and making sure the county government is doing the best job they can," said Sen. Delvin.

Commissioner Leo Bowman has held the position since 1996 and announced his plans to retire on Tuesday. He says he's excited to spend more time with family and work on other projects.
