LIMA — Rhonda Eddy-Stienecker served her final day as Allen County auditor on Friday before stepping down to work for a non-profit in Indiana.
“I personally think that I have the best job in the county,” Eddy-Stienecker wrote on her Facebook page. “I’ve had the opportunity to teach, public speak and implement so many programs to make things easier for the staff and the taxpayers.”
She was appointed Allen County auditor in 2008 to fill Ben Diepenbrock’s unexpired term.
During her time as auditor, she streamlined the office, refinanced debt to save the county more than $800,000 and put all financial information online, adding transparency to the office, she wrote.
“I’m very proud of all the things that I was able to accomplish with my amazing staff,” Eddy-Stienecker stated on her Facebook page.
Eddy-Stienecker previously announced she wasn’t running for re-election. Rachael Gilroy, Allen County’s treasurer, ran unopposed in the May primary as the Republican candidate for auditor, and she has no competition on the November ballot.
The Allen County commissioners will hold a special session at 9 a.m. Monday to appoint an interim auditor.
