Paul Cook

Representative Paul Cook says he’s running for San Bernardino County supervisor.

The Republican from Yucca Valley announced Tuesday that he would seek election to the 1st District seat in 2020.

This comes after current 1st District Supervisor, Robert Lovingood, announced he would not be seeking re-election in August.

Cook is a retired Marine Corps colonel and Vietnam combat veteran. He was elected to Congress in 2012 after representing the High Desert area in the state Assembly.
