District 5 Supervisor Wally Leimgruber announced Tuesday he will seek re-election to the county board.
Leimgruber said his first term's major accomplishment was ensuring the county has a reserve fund.
"This is the first time in county history we've had a fund balance," he said. "Because of it we've been able to compensate county employees fairly and give raises where needed, including public safety employees."
Leimgruber made his announcement at the board's meeting, and sent out press releases.
He said in his second four-year term he would like to see the county's economy diversify. He said agriculture is and will continue to be the principal economic engine, but that diversification is needed, such as dairies and a milk-processing plant.
Leimgruber also said he would like the county to have a four-year California State University campus or an expansion of San Diego State University-Imperial Valley campus.
