Former Multnomah County Sheriff's Capt. Bruce McCain has been an active commenter on the Kyron Horman investigation since retiring from the sheriff's office.

And now McCain has filed (PDF) to run this May for a seat on the board of the Reynolds School District in east Multnomah County.

A former personal attorney for ex-Sheriff Bernie Giusto and a conservative who once represented the anti-gay Oregon Citizens Alliance, McCain today stressed the need for fiscal responsibility in his decision to run for the school board.

"I've got the time and interest to take on a non-paying job," says McCain. "I wanted to help participate and stay involved in local schools, especially during this tough economy."

"Coming out of the public sector, I understand how public agencies work with budgets. I'm not looking to be an employee," he said. "Reynolds has gone through some tough financial times. I've got experience in government policy and budgets. I'm looking at the opportunity to stay involved in the community where I've been paying taxes."
