For Doades the award capped off the conference. “It was nice,” she said. “I didn’t know I was going to receive it. It was a lot of fun. There were several people from Daviess County that were there and it was good to share this with them.”
This is not the first time the AIC has recognized Doades. She also received the 2004 County Recorder of the Year Award.
Doades was first elected auditor in 2005. Because the Indiana constitution limits the terms of county auditors Doades will not be able to run for re-election in 2014. She isn’t done with politics. “I have been talking with Kenny Solliday. He is talking about not running for re-election to the county council. If he doesn’t run then I will seek his seat.”
The annual AIC conference is the state’s largest gathering of county officials. The 4 day event not only recognizes the outstanding office holders around Indiana but also includes workshops and educational seminars. Topics this year included the impact of the Affordable Health Care Act on Counties, funding county services and taking full advantage of road dollars.
