Former Oklahoma state representative and gubernatorial candidate Joe Dorman has announced that he will take up a one-year term on Rush Springs' City Council following the resignations of two members.

The Express-Star reports that Dorman made his announcement Tuesday, and that he will not run for the seat. Marvin Loeffler resigned from the council about little over a month ago, while Brian Hale recently announced he was stepping down. Both resigned for personal reasons.
