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 second term.
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.
On August 15, 2016, Derickson was selected by the Ohio Board of Embalmers and Funeral Directors to lead the state funeral board. Derickson, who was term-limited and could not seek reelection, subsequently announced his resignation from the Ohio House effective August 22, 2016.
