Steven Dyer of Rockland is seeking the Republican nomination for the Knox County Commission seat that represents the Rockland area.

Dyer filed his intent to seek the office with the Maine Commission on Governmental Ethics and Election Practices.

No other candidates have filed their intent to run.

The seat is held by Democrat Anne Beebe-Center who announced earlier this year that she would not seek a third consecutive four-year term.

Dyer is a Rockland native who graduated from Rockland District High School in 1983. He has served as a Rockland police officer. He graduated magna cum laude with a degree in economics and finance from Southern New Hampshire University in 1995. He also completed a master’s degree in pastoral ministry.

Dyer now works as a real estate agent.

He also serves on the Regional School Unit 13 board, having been elected to a three-year term in November. Dyer said he would remain on the school board if elected to the Knox County Commission.

The commission district he seeks to serve is county District 1, which covers Rockland, Rockport, Owls Head and South Thomaston.
