ECTOR COUNTY -- Ector County Judge Susan Redford is running for re-election .
She made the announcement Thursday in Odessa.
She says if re-elected she plans to continue focusing on two of the core values of county government, law enforcement and roads.
According to Redford those two areas are the most strained since the economic boom.
Redford has been County Judge since 2007.
Before that was a prosecutor which she says gives her the inside knowledge of the courts that she needs for the job.
