Former Flathead County Undersheriff and co-founder of Two Bear Air, Jordan White, has announced his candidacy.

White resigned his appointed position in 2012 to create Two Bear Air Rescue, a helicopter rescue program that serves Montana and Idaho. He left Two Bear Air in 2017 to further his career in law enforcement.
