Aukes plans to oppose Homer in sheriff's race
Sgt. Cory Aukes announced Friday he would run for the office of Hubbard County Sheriff against incumbent Frank Homer.
Homer told the county board Wednesday he intended to seek election to the post he was appointed to in March 2009.
The two men were considered for the post after former Sheriff Gary Mills resigned one year ago due to chronic health problems.
The Hubbard County board appointed Homer to fill out Mills' term.
But both candidates gave presentations that impressed board members.
Aukes is a 20-year veteran of the department.
