"Amie came into the department during a time in which there was a vacancy in the supervisor's role, it became apparent in a short period of time that she had the knowledge, skills and abilities to lead this department," Pittard said. "We are grateful to the entire staff who have worked diligently during this interim period to keep the department functioning at an optimum level. I would like to express a special thanks to Mr. Derek LaPerrier who has served as the Interim supervisor."

In the role, Veater will be responsible for administering and supervising the conduct of elections, primaries and the registration of electors for the county. Veater leads White County's Office of Elections and Voter Registration and reports to the County Manager.
