A woman who served two terms as Cass County auditor is the latest recipient of a special city award.
Dawn Conner-Kraud, who was named Indiana County Auditor of the Year during her tenure in the Cass County Government Building, has been named a Bicentennial Citizen of the Week by Logansport Mayor Dave Kitchell.
“Dawn deserves the honor because she is maybe the first Cass County official ever to be recognized as the best in the state of Indiana,” Kitchell said. “County auditors are one of the critical positions in county government because they not only serve as the secretary to the county commissioners, but the county council. While those positions are part-time, county auditor is a full-time job, and when you consider the financial responsibilities involves and the changing state tax structure that had a dramatic effect on counties, Dawn did an exceptional job keeping us in the black.”
Kraud is an Ohio native and the wife of Logansport School Board member and Logansport Redevelopment Commission President Scott Kraud.
The Bicentennial Citizen of the Week Award is presented to a local resident or native who has achieved statewide or national recognition during their lifetime.
