There are no Democrats or independents in the race, so Miller’s victory means she’ll be taking over as Sandusky County’s auditor after longtime auditor Bill Farrell retires.
“I’m still in a little bit of a daze,” Miller said. “I’m very pleased”
Miller had said she was approached by local Republicans and asked to run. During the race, she stressed her qualifications as a CPA.
“A lot of people wanted somebody with the qualifications that I had” she said. “They wanted a CPA to run the office”
Miller is the executive director of the Sandusky County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
“I told my board that I would stay on, I would help train the new person,” she said. “I don’t take office until March of 2015, so we have plenty of time to look for a new person”
Brown could not immediately be reached for comment on his cellphone.
During the campaign, he pointed out he had a long background in county government and had studied the county’s budget as part of his duties as the county administrator.
