Whitley County Republican Party Chooses New Auditor

The Whitley County Republican Party has chosen a new Auditor. 23-year-old Jana Schinbeckler was elected Wednesday night. The caucus was organized after former Auditor Jennifer McGuire suddenly resigned amid controversy and investigations by the Indiana State Police and State Board of Accounts in August for “alleged impropriates”. Schinbeckler, who's worked every position in the Auditor's office, says she plans to run for Auditor one day, but for now, will fulfill the duties for the remainder of the term, which ends December 31st.
