After a short break from working for the state, a former Iron Range lawmaker is looking to get back into politics.

Tom Rukavina announced Monday that he is running for a seat on the St. Louis County Board. 

"I'm excited to run for county commissioner," Rukavina said in a statement, "and I promise I'll bring the same level of compassion, honesty, and spirit to the county that people have come to expect from me as a public servant."

Rukavina is vying for the fourth district seat, which is currently held by the retiring Mike Forsman.

Rukavina served as a DFL representative in the Minnesota House for more than two decades and currently works for Rep. Rick Nolan (D-Minn.).

Filing in the race officially opens Tuesday.
