Colorado Springs realtor Jariah Walker announced Monday he will challenge El Paso County Commissioner Peggy Littleton for the District 5 seat in the November election.

Walker, a third-generation Colorado Springs resident, is a partner at Walker Asset Management Realty, Inc. Prior to working in real estate he served as a marketing manager for a supply distribution company and a regional restaurant chain, according to the Walker Asset Management website.

According to Ryan Parsell of the county's clerk and recorder's office, Republican Thomas Austin has also filed as a candidate to challenge Littleton in District 5.

Littleton was elected to Board of County Commissioners in November 2010 and took office in January 2011. Prior to being elected, the former teacher served on the State Board of Education for seven years.

Along with District 5, the District 1 seat held by Darryl Glenn will be on the ballot in November. Glenn, a Doherty High School and Air Force Academy graduate, was also elected in 2010 and is up for re-election. He was a member of the Colorado Springs city council for seven years before becoming a county commissioner.
