Knox County Commissioner Announces Bid for Trustee

Knox County Commissioner Ed Shouse says he plans to run for county trustee in 2014, Knoxnews reports. Shouse, who has more than 35 years of experience in banking and finance, said he believes that experience would help him as tax collector. “There’s one job at the courthouse in county government that I always thought I’d be good at, and that’s the trustee,” Shouse told the News Sentinel yesterday. Craig Leuthhold, who was appointed in July to finish trustee John J. Duncan’ term after he resigned amid charges of misappropriating funds, may also run in 2014.
