Pence scheduled a Monday ceremony at the Statehouse for Sawyer to assume the office. The Brownsburg Town Council president is taking over the post with more than 16 months left in the term of former auditor Tim Berry, who was elected to his second term in 2010.

Berry stepped down last week to take over as Indiana Republican Party chairman.

Sawyer is expected to seek a full term as the state's chief financial officer next year. Pence has said one of his requirements in picking a new auditor was a commitment to seeking a spot on the ballot.
