KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Knox County Commissioner Ed Shouse announced Wednesday he plans to run for Knox County Trustee in next spring's Republican primary.

"The main role of Trustee is collecting and investing the county's tax dollars, hundreds of million of dollars a year, so having someone with a business and financial background, like myself, makes sense," said Shouse in a prepared release.

This is Shouse's first run for a full-time political office.

Shouse is chairman of the finance committee and serves as vice-chair for the audit committee and retirement board. He is also a member of the county investment committee.

Shouse says he will officially file papers to run for trustee in November.
