The Knox County Commission has named Craig Leuthold as the new county trustee, Knoxnews reports. Leuthold has held public positions since 1995, working for the county trustee and property assessor and serving on the county commission for two terms. He replaces John J. Duncan III, who resigned this month after pleading guilty to paying bonuses for work that was not completed. Leuthold emphasized he would work to repair the damage done to the office. “I’m going to work toward changing morale,” he said. “I’m going to be transparent.” The appointment is a temporary one. The office will be up for election in September 2014.
