Gov. Mike Pence announces Dwayne Sawyer as his choice for state auditor.

Dwayne Sawyer has been sworn in as the new state auditor.

Gov. Mike Pence named Sawyer last week to complete the term of Tim Berry, who stepped down to become state Republican Party chairman.

Sawyer says he’s inherited a strong staff from Berry but wants to continue to improve Indiana’s fiscal health.

“I will work hard to help drive technical efficiencies to save taxpayer dollars,” says Sawyer, whose professional background is in information technology.

Sawyer was one of several Republicans who had begun campaigning to replace Berry, who would have been forced out of office by term limits at the end of next year if he hadn‘t resigned. Sawyer’s appointment is likely to clear the field at next year‘s party convention.
