District 3 - Duane Drees

Duane Drees 300
"I've always been proud of Finney County residents. We're open and friendly. We accept people for who they are and we all do our part to give back to the community."
With plenty of experience serving on various boards in the community, Duane felt like he had something more to offer. He first ran for the Board of County Commissioners in 2012.

While serving as chair of the board, Duane made it his personal mission to ensure Finney County's mission statement was updated. "Dedicated to its citizens, serving its taxpayers" was adopted in 2017.
"It was very important to me how the new mission statement was worded. I think it now accurately reflects what our goal as Commissioners should be and it sums up how I feel about my role."

Although Duane's private business keeps him busy, he is still considering running for the Commission again in 2020.
