SULLIVAN COUNTY, Tenn. -

Another candidate has announced plans to run for Sullivan County sheriff.

Joe Miller, a former major with the Sullivan County Sheriff's Office, said Tuesday that he will run for sheriff in 2014.

Miller spent 28 years in law enforcement. He retired in September 2013.

We're told he will run as an independent candidate.

"[I believe] there are many things at the sheriff's office over the years since I've worked there I know that can be made better," he told us.

Other candidates vying to be sheriff include the current sheriff Wayne Anderson, Republican Ty Boomershine, and Democrat John Taylor.
