Doades named Indiana's Auditor of the Year

Daviess County Auditor Gail Doades has been named the 2013 Association of Indiana Counties Auditor of the Year. Doades received the honor Wednesday night at the AIC annual conference in Switzerland County. “I am absolutely thrilled,” said Doades. “It means a lot to me.”

The award recognized her contributions to county government and her efforts to help auditors around the state of Indiana. Auditors from all 92 counties in Indiana make the selection. “She is really good,” said AIC Executive Director David Bottorff. “She does a great job and has helped auditors throughout the state by organizing seminars and sessions.”

“The fact that the other auditors around the state recognized her that shows a lot of respect,” said President of the Daviess County Commissioners Tony Wichman.

Not only is Doades the county auditor but has done double duty as president of the state auditor’s association. “I wouldn’t have been able to do what I have at the state level if it had not been for the staff in Daviess County,” said Doades. “They are a really good bunch of people. This is really an honor for the entire county. Serving as the state association president has also exposed our local deputies to a lot of important information that has helped them do their job better.”

Local officials who work with Doades say the state is recognizing something they have already known for a long time. “She does a terrific job,” said County Council President Mike Myers. “I think it’s a well deserved honor. She works really hard and stays on top of things.”

“She is as good of an auditor as this county has ever had,” added Wichman. “She is easy to work with. Her office staff works well and she knows where to get answers. Procedurally, she keeps us on the right track. We respect what she does and are really appreciative of her efforts.”
