Ohio House of Representatives 
With incumbent Shawn Webster unable to run again due to term limits, Derickson was one of three who sought to replace him. However, in a razor-thin primary victory, Derickson won the Republican nomination by 54 votes. He faced Democrat Rocky Day in the general election, and won with 65.85% of the electorate.
In his 2010 reelection campaign Derickson, unopposed in the primary, defeated Democrat James Shew with 70.19 of the electorate to take a second term. He serves on the committees of Agriculture and Natural Resources (as vice chair); Education; Insurance; and Local Government. He is also a member of the Ohio Commission on Fatherhood; the Governor’s Advisory Board of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives; and the Butler County Transportation Improvement District Board of Trustees. He also is Chairman of the Workforce Development Study Committee. On May 10, 2011, Derickson announced that he would seek a seat in the Ohio Senate, following Gary Cates resignation. However, the seat ultimately went to Bill Coley.
Derickson won a third term in 2012 with 60.91% of the vote.
