Governor Names New State Auditor Today
December 16, 2013 — TheStatehouseFile.com
INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Mike Pence said he plans to announce the state’s new auditor today (Monday).
Pence said he plans to offer the position to the chosen candidate Friday afternoon and that there will likely be an interim auditor to help facilitate the transition.
“We have a number of qualified men and women and I have been very grateful for the willingness of those individuals to be considered for that appointment,” Pence said.
The previous auditor, Dwayne Sawyer, announced his resignation last month – effective Sunday – after just three months on the job. He said he needed to take care of “family and personal concerns.”
Pence had appointed Sawyer to the position in August after the elected auditor – Tim Berry – left to become the chairman of the Indiana Republican Party.
