Myron Dorn of Adams, who is chairman of the Gage County Board of Supervisors, announced Wednesday he'll seek the legislative seat that will be vacated by Sen. Roy Baker of Lincoln at the end of next year.
Dorn, who said he will focus on property tax reduction, is the third announced candidate for the 30th District seat in the nonpartisan Legislature.
Baker announced earlier that he will not seek re-election to a second term.
As a county board member, Dorn said he has centered on roads and economic development issues.
"To move forward, property tax relief must be a priority," Dorn said.
"My county board experience will be a valuable asset in making tough and necessary decisions in the Legislature," he said.
"As an elected official, I believe you should treat people with respect and that you should treat people the way you want to be treated."
Dorn, a lifelong farmer in the Firth and Adams area, is a registered Republican.
Don Schuller of Wymore and Joe Murray of Firth previously announced their intention to enter the legislative race.
Schuller is a Democrat; Murray is a Republican.
The 30th District encompasses southwest Lincoln, southeastern Lancaster County and Gage County.
