KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- John Duncan III, the son of Congressman Jimmy Duncan, has filed paperwork to run for Knox County trustee in 2010.
He's going up against incumbent trustee Fred Sisk.
Duncan is a University of Tennessee graduate who works at BankEast. He says he's a fiscal conservative with business experience who learned a lot from his father.
"The best form of politics is just not to worry about politics," Duncan says. "My family's reputation has been getting out there and helping as many people as possible regardless of who they are, whether rich or poor, Republican or Democrat and that is the kind of legacy I want to follow, just to get out and do a good job, do the right thing and help people."
The trustee's office turned over purchasing card records in March, at the request of the county purchasing department. Sisk said the TBI wants to review the records from 2004 until now as part of its trustee's office investigation.
Duncan and Sisk are the only candidates are listed to run for trustee.
Sisk released this statement Friday afternoon. "It is my intention to run for trustee in 2010. As far as John Duncan III, he supported me and served on my host committee in the last election. If he should choose to run, I look forward to a vigorous campaign in which we debate the operation of the trustee's office for which my 20 years of experience make me uniquely qualified to discuss."
