A member of the Ector County School Board is making a run at a higher office.

Randy Rives has now thrown his hat into the ring for State Representative for the 81st District, making it a three man race.

You may remember former Odessa Judge and Attorney Tryon Lewis announced his plans to run.

Followed by Incumbent Buddy West, who originally said he would retire due to health reasons, but has now reconsidered after getting a clean bill of health.

Rives has organized a triple city tour this Saturday, in which he'll host press conferences in Kermit, Andrews, and Odessa.
