OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Term-limited Republican state Rep. Mike Reynolds of Oklahoma City says he plans to run for a Cleveland County commissioner seat.

Reynolds said Wednesday he planned to seek the post currently held by County Commissioner Rusty Sullivan.

Sullivan announced in a statement Wednesday that he would not seek another term. His announcement comes after a multicounty grand jury report last week found his involvement in a road project likely broke state laws. Sullivan wasn’t charged with a crime because the statute of limitations had expired.

The 63-year-old Reynolds has served in the Legislature since his election to his south Oklahoma City seat in 2002. He could not run again for the seat because of term limits.

Reynolds‘ brother, Jim Reynolds, is the Cleveland County treasurer.
