ELKO, Nev. (AP) — Carlin Mayor Cliff Eklund is throwing his hat in the ring for a seat on the Elko County Commission.

The two-term mayor is being forced to seek a new job at the end of the year due to term limits.

Eklund also served four years as a city councilman. He ran a safety consulting business for more than 15 years before he retired in 2009.

The Elko Daily Free Press (http://tinyurl.com/lfwgppm) reports he's seeking the seat being left vacant by Commissioner Jeff Williams, who said he was sticking to a campaign promise to serve only one term.

The fourth district he represents includes areas in and around Carlin, Jack Creek, Ryndon, Osino and parts of Spring Creek.
