LINCOLN — Myron Dorn, a farmer and the Gage County Board chairman, has announced his candidacy for the Nebraska Legislature.

Dorn, who lives on an acreage near Adams, will seek the District 30 seat. The district represents Gage County and the southeastern corner of Lancaster County, including parts of Lincoln.

State Sen. Roy Baker of Lincoln, who currently holds the seat, has announced that he will not run for re-election.

Dorn farms with his brothers, a son and a nephew in the Firth and Adams area. He has served on the County Board since 2010. He also served on the Firth Co-op Board and, later, the Dorchester Co-op Board.

Dorn is a Republican.

Two other candidates have launched bids for the District 30 seat. They are Joe Murray of Firth and Don Schuller of Wymore.
