Marshall County Judge Executive Mike Miller said he plans to run for his 11th term next year as long as he remains in good health.
The 68 year old said he recently had kidney stones and had three major surgeries several years ago. He also said he’s running despite allegations of misconduct for signing documents stating a county employee had been laid off when he’s actually retired, allowing him to collect unemployment benefits.
“I’m just wanting to get that settled, but that’s not even entered my mind about whether or not to run,” he said.
Attorney General Jack Conway is investigating the matter that involved a part-time dog catcher.
Miller is the longest serving judge executive in Kentucky, and no one has yet to step up as a challenger for 2014.
