Former Colorado Springs city councilwoman Sallie Clark is running for county commissioner in District 3.
She made the announcement to a group of supporters this morning.
Clark hopes to take the seat of Chuck Brown who must step down due to term limits.
She says she wants all elected officials in the region to work together to save tax dollars.
"I think I'm the perfect person to bridge the gap betweeen city and county and to realize we have problems that effect all of us."
Two other Republicans also want the seat. Jack Gloriod and Michael Kazmierski are now campaigning.
