WICHITA, Kan. - Derby Mayor Dion Avello says he will run for Sedgwick County Commission, District 5.

In a statement released Thursday morning, Avello says his experience as Mayor of Derby and as a business owner qualify him for the job.

"We've added more than 350 new businesses and more than 1,800 new jobs in Derby since 2008," Avello said. "We have money in reserve funds and our 2014 budget calls for no increase in the mill levy."

Current District 5 Commissioner Jim Skelton has announced he will not run for re-election, leaving after one term.
