Baker & Daniels attorney to head election board

A Baker & Daniels attorney will begin her role as the Marion County Election Board’s director of elections this week.

Tenley Drescher-Rhoades, former deputy corporation counsel for Indianapolis, served as counsel to the Marion County Election Board in her position at the local law firm Baker & Daniels. The three-member board helps to administer the county’s elections. Marion County Clerk Beth White, a Democrat, serves as board secretary, along with a member appointed by each political party.
