A longtime Oklahoma education official says he plans to run for state superintendent of public instruction in 2014.

Democrat Jack Herron of Norman said Monday he intends to seek the post currently held by Republican Janet Barresi.

The 67-year-old Herron worked as assistant state superintendent for financial services at the state Department of Education until he says Barresi fired him after she took over in 2011. He has since worked as legislative liaison for the Professional Oklahoma Educators, a nonunion teacher's service organization.

Herron has worked as a superintendent in Macomb, Mangum, Guthrie and Duncan, and as a supervisor of regional centers for the Oklahoma School of Science and Mathematics.

Former state school board member Joy Hofmeister, a Republican, and Bennington Superintendent Donna Anderson, a Democrat, also are running.
