Fuentes Sworn-in As Treasurer

Marion County Treasurer
Claudia Fuentes
Claudia Fuentes won the votes of the majority of Precinct Committeepersons in a special caucus at yesterday's Marion County Slating Convention and was sworn in as Marion County Treasurer replacing Mike Rodman, who retired from office last month.

The Democrat becomes the first Latina to hold executive public office in Marion County, according to the Indianapolis Star.  Fuentes will also run for her own term in the 2012 election.  We shall see if the other candidates for the office drop out of the race.  Tuesday is the deadline to remove oneself from the ballot.

Fuentes had been Marion County Auditor Billie Breaux's Deputy Auditor.
