Grennell said he wants to be able to work on the board as the Rentech land closing comes to fruition in April.

“I have been with that project since day one and I want to see it through,” he said. “Right now that’s the best way I can serve the county.”

Grennell said people have been continuously asking him to run for mayor.

“I saw a tremendous amount of support and interest,” he said.
