The woman who has been working as Vermilion County’s Financial Resources Director has announced she is running for Vermilion County Auditor. Erika Briggs was hired as the Financial Resources Director for the County two years ago after graduating Magna Cum Laude from Indiana State University majoring in Accounting.
Briggs says she has acquired an intimate knowledge of the County’s financial system, providing detailed revenue and expenditure reports to the County Board on a monthly basis. ‘’I have been the County Board Chairman’s chief advisor on County fiscal policy,’’ said Briggs. Additionally, Briggs says she has helped department heads and elected officials in the county formulate budgets.
Briggs is running for County Auditor on the Republican Party ticket. ‘’I am excited for the future and I am ready to take on this leadership role,’’ she added.
Briggs is a life-long resident of Vermilion County and says she has a ”strong love and attachment for Vermilion County and want to see it flourish.”
