Sgt. Cory Aukes announced Friday he would run for the office of Hubbard County Sheriff against Frank Homer, who was temporarily appointed to fill the position last year.


Homer told the county board last Wednesday he intended to seek election to the post the county board tapped him for in March 2009.

The two men were considered for the vacancy after former Sheriff Gary Mills resigned one year ago due to chronic health problems.
