Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said he plans to announce the state’s new auditor on 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.

  • Finally
    Finally, a qualified person for State Auditor. If the rumors about Dwayne are true, people should be asking the Pence administration questions and we should be entitled to answers. If they are true, then everything Pence said about Sawyer being a good family man and good Christian man, and a man of integrity is false. Please people, keep asking questions!!!
