A second candidate has announced he will run for Winona County Sheriff this year.

St. Charles Mayor Bill Spitzer, who announced earlier he will not seek another term, says he will run for sheriff instead.

Spitzer has 30 years in criminal justice and 24 of those years with the Winona County Sheriff's Department. He says he wants to take advantage of an opportunity to lead the department.

Spitzer is looking at making some changes if he is elected including emphasizing safety and security in the county.

He also wants to focus on improving client service, management development, and strategies for the future.

Spitzer joins fellow deputy and investigator Rob Averbeck who announced earlier he will also run for sheriff.

Current Sheriff Dave Brand who has headed the department since 1998 has not announced if he will seek a fifth four-year term.
