BOONE COUNTY COMMISSION APPOINTS
ART AUER AS INTERIM BOONE COUNTY CLERK

June 20, 2017— The Boone County Commission appointed Art Auer as Interim County Clerk during today’s Commission meeting. Art’s appointment will be effective Saturday, June 24, 2017. This appointment comes following longtime Boone County Clerk Wendy S. Noren’s announcement that she will resign from her position effective June 23, 2017. By statute, the Boone County Commission is charged with appointing an Interim County Clerk to discharge the duties of the office until the Governor has appointed a successor.

Art has been an employee of Boone County since 1984 and has served as Director of Elections and Voter Registration since 1986. During his service to Boone County, Art gained experience in employee management; office procedure development; media relations; ballot and public notice design and publication; off-site voter registration location maintenance; and purchasing and billing responsibilities. The Boone County Commission has full confidence in Art’s ability to see Boone County and the Clerk’s office through this time of change, and thanks him for his willingness to step into this role.
