Pueblo County Sheriff Kirk Taylor is running for re-election in 2010.
Taylor made the announcement Tuesday afternoon. The Democrat listed off the achievements of his first term as sheriff, saying he saved Pueblo County taxpayers millions of dollars through policies he has put in place.
Taylor says under his direction, the county's command staff has also become more diversified, with two women and five Hispanic workers holding positions on the ten-person team.
Taylor will have competition when voters go to the polls, though. He will run against Republican Randy Willis, a former Pueblo police officer.
