Steve Van Denover Announces Bid for Auditor

Stephen (Steve) E. Van Denover announced Friday he will run for Mason County Auditor, the position currently held by Karen Herr. The three-term Auditor announced in December she would not seek re-election.

Van Denover will run as an Independent and says he wants the Auditor’s office to continue the tradition of providing essential services in a manner that ensures quality, accountability and accessibility. Those services include elections, recording and licensing.

Van Denover has over 30 years of experience in Federal, State, and County Government and wants to put that expertise to work for the citizens of Mason County.

Van Denover ran for Mason County Auditor in 2006 but lost to Herr.

The official candidate filing period for this fall’s election is May 14th to May 18th. The Primary Election is August 7th. The General Election is November 6th.
