INDIANAPOLIS - Governor Mike Pence named Representative Suzanne Crouch Auditor of State for Indiana.
Crouch will complete the term held by Dwayne Sawyer which runs through 2014. Saywer resigned from the position in November citing personal reasons.
“Suzanne Crouch has a lifetime of experience and a heart for public service,” Pence said. “Suzanne’s fiscal leadership in the Indiana General Assembly, her distinguished public career in local government, and financial background will be valuable assets to our state.”
Crouch served two terms as the Auditor of Vanderburgh County, and was president of the Vanderburgh County Board of Commissioners. She was elected to the Indiana General Assembly in 2005 and serves as Vice Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee.
Erin Sheridan, the Chief of Staff for the Office of the Auditor, is serving as Auditor on an interim basis until Jan. 2, 2014.
