Governor Mike Pence just named Indiana State Representative Suzanne Crouch (R-Evansville) the next State Auditor.

Crouch has been State Representative for House District 78, which serves part of Vanderburgh, Warrick and Spencer Counties, since 2005. 

Before that, she served two terms as the Auditor of Vanderburgh County.

The news comes after the state auditor post opened up after Republican Dwayne Sawyer resigned. He was only on the job for three months. 

Sawyer told Governor Pence he was leaving because of "family and personal concerns."

Crouch will complete Sawyer's term which runs through 2014.

The Auditor of the State has four primary duties: accounting for all of the state's funds; overseeing and disbursing county, city, town and school tax distributions; paying the state's bills; and paying the state's employees.
