Who is Grant Daugherty?
I am a lifelong Republican who has served my community for many years as a former County Commissioner, Fiscal Officer and Administrator. I have been involved with farming my whole life growing up on a dairy farm where my parents taught me the value of hard work and responsibility.
"After careful assessment of the current environment in the county and after many conversations with constituents, I concluded, it was time for a change in leadership in the Auditor's Office. The office needs to offer a friendlier environment to the public, to business and to professionals in our county. I will bring a conservative service oriented, common sense approach to the office to better serve all the residents in the county."
