Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Indiana State Auditor Tim Berry has resigned from the position to begin full time as the new state Republican Party chairman.

The governor's office said Wednesday that Gov. Mike Pence accepted Berry's resignation and will name his replacement on Thursday.

Berry became the state Republican chairman last month after being picked for that position by Pence.

Berry is from Fort Wayne and was first elected state auditor in 2006 after serving eight years as state treasurer. The new auditor's term will run through the end of 2014, with that office up for election next year.

The governor's office said Deputy Auditor Kirke Willing is serving as the interim state auditor.

  • Loyalty
    Tim Berry's first loyalty is to the Republican party, not the State and people of Indiana. We should remember this and never elect him to another office.
