Clark County Auditor John Federer was installed as President of the Southwest District of the County Auditors’ Association of Ohio (CAAO) for 2017 at their annual Winter Conference. Also installed were Vice President Greene County Auditor David Graham and Secretary/Treasurer Pickaway County Auditor Melissa Betz. The Honorable C. Douglas Chamberlain of Logan County installed Mr. Federer during a ceremony on Thursday, November 17th at the Embassy Suites Dublin.

The District works closely with the CAAO Columbus office to monitor legislative proposals that impact local taxpayers and to offer initiatives that assist County Auditors in carrying out their duties. During 2017 we anticipate much activity as the state begins the process of enacting a new biennial budget, with ongoing examination of government reform measures, major changes in a variety of taxation issues, and addressing the general condition of the state’s economy.

The CAAO includes all 88 Ohio County Auditors. Now entering into its 150th year, it was established to promote and protect the interests of the taxpayers of Ohio and to improve the administration of county government.
